Have you ever towed in winter? My work is busy this year and as such is seeing me work the majority of the winter. The Land Rover now has winter wheels ready to be fitted, but what happens to my trailers?

My largest trailer has a GVWR of 3.5ton (7,700lbs) across twin axles with over-run brakes. It is almost always around the 2ton mark with all the clobber in the back. Do I need to consider winter tyres to retain braking performance and avoid a jack-knife situation? The track width is outside of the Land Rover’s, so it’s pretty much on its own out there, all 18ft of it.
