    We recently went to Matroosberg and encountered over a meter of snow in some places. What have your experiences been with snow regarding tyre pressures, best tyres and driving techniques?

    You can order some Snow Tyre straps from online which should help.

    They dont cost very much and i think are an absolute necessity!

    you’ll kick yourself if you didn’t have them. found this out the hard way myself on a Lesotho trip.

     

    just remember to always carry extra and dont drive to fast. also. if your vehicle is only 2 WD – then you wont need to put on the back tyres obviously.

    i also saw some skrew in snow spikes. BUT i wouldn’t recommend them. obviously.

    As for you tyre pressure. just be careful you dont over inflate them. my suggestion is 1.2 KPA

    similar to sand. but a hardend tyre will sink further in snow 😉
