If you are driving the jeep through winter I think you'll be fine. Maybe check you radiator fluid to be sure you got the correct mixture for cold climates. 50/50 should be fine unless germany gets really cold.
As for tires I just run my KM2s through the winter but if I had the spare cash for a set of actual winter tires I'd get them, but cant make any recommendation cause I've never looked

I was all over west Germany on and off last winter and id say a typical winterization would do fine (fluids, tires, etc) unless its just going to be sitting. It was cold as hell but I wouldnt say more extreme that the winters where im at now here in Va.
The three most common expressions (or famous last words) in aviation are:
- "Why is it doing that?",
- "Where are we?"
- and "Oh Sh!t!"
