Am having winter tyres fitted in November (Corsa Excite auto). When I bought it in August I opted for a steel spare wheel and I was wondering if this could be fitted in an emergency with the non-winter tyre on it - ( just to go a short distance to Kwik Fit, for example). Have received conflicting advice, so would appreciate clarification.

Depends if you really believe winter tyres make a difference or not..

As above, most lighter cars i.e. corsa/mini tend to be alright in the snow. I've not reached that point with this car so who knows but I just carry extra weight in my car when it's snowing, I can't see the point in having a 'emergency winter tyre' just call the AA which came with your car anyway and they'll sort you out, exact advice I was told as I have free tyre replacements they said don't use the inflation kit but call the AA to bring you here (especially if you're only using it to get to Kwik Fit?)
