Bargain price for a decent winter tyre.

I maybe wrong but the reason they don't rate winter tyres the same as summer ones is because they don't expect people to be driving upto speeds of 150 mph in poor conditions ?
But if not correct please tell me.

There is a rule to put winter tyres with next lower speed rating then your summer ones

Had Nokians on my last car - summer was crap (4 deg c in June on Salisbury Plain:|) )so didn't take them off - got more mileage than the normal tyres and there was still plenty of tread left on when I px'd it

I prefer the niche Vredestein brand. Their winter tyre range is becoming well known for is quality. Performs very well in tyre tests.

Quite reasonable prices here

Reasonable prices ?!... 20 quid per tyre cheaper at tyreleader, oponeo, tyres-pneus-online and probably other shops too.
Vredestein is a good brand( recently bought by far east company Apollo ) but Nokian is the main winter tyre used in Sweden, Norway or Finland - they know best

Wow. I wish my winter tyres were this price.. sadly cost me £130 more. Each :/
Amazing grip though in the cold & wet/frosty mornings recently. Lays down 300bhp at full accel without even blinking & thats on cold tyres.

Might one assume that all 300 horses would be galloping through two rear tyres? I salute you, Sir. Good work!

Great deal. I've got a set of these in my shed waiting to get fitted when my four year old set of Nokian WR G2's finally wear out.
I paid £60 each for this size so this is a hot deal. These tyres really are the dogs danglies in snow or ice.

That for a higher XL load rating. Standard load rating is £48 as stated by OP.

the usual process of getting winter tyres is to buy smaller size wheels and tyres as the thinner tyres will help put more force down for better grip in snow aswell as them being much cheaper

For instance my car normally has 195/45x16 but i have a set of winter wheels with I think 185/75/14. Although if you have a car with 300 horses chances are your brakes will require 16-17inch wheels at a minimum.
People often make comments about it being daft buying a second set of tyres but while I am on my 14" Goodyear Ultragrip 8s at about £50 a corner I am not wearing out my 16" continentals that are £80 a corner..

I put my winter wheels on last weekend.

If that was a "you have a fast car so must be single" type reference, not at all. Very successful GP with a lovely house & amazing wife thankyou very much.

Just put these Nokian WR A3's in a larger wider size lower profile on my Mazda. They are really grippy in the cold and wet, yet to test them in the snow but winter tyres are worth considering. Ordered from Tyre Leader - posted from Germany and fitted within a few days here in the UK. Going to somewhere like Kwik Fit would have been about 40% more for the full set and would have been left having whatever they had available in my size (incidentally my local fitters didn't have my size and only had cheap Chinese tyres). I also had the XL version. Many insurance companies ask you to inform them if you fit winter tyres even though the premiums aren't changed.

Good price - I'd definitely switch to winter tyres if I could afford it!

Well worth the switch. Dont cost more in the long run, you just share the wear between summer & winter tyres. Will save a fortune if it prevents a crash.

Type your reg no in at eurocarparts or phone around your local car parts supliers. Avoid Halfords though if a decent price is what you're after.

300bhp isn't that much though these days really though. Most of the full size ~£30k or less hot hatches have virtually as much as that and some more, Golf R, Leon 280, Audi S3, BMW 135i, Astra VXR, upcoming Civic Type R and Focus RS etc. It's especially not that much if you have something that is bigger or heavier than these hatches.

Really too it's torque that is going to get you into trouble in the winter, especially if you have a mapped turbo car setup for maximum midrange pull. When we had that particularly cold winter in England a couple years ago I had a mapped 335i and it was suicide being a tiny bit too heavy on the throttle because it had 400lb/ft torque at about 3000rpm.

Winter tyres are really useful below about 7 degrees celsius even if it isn't snowy or icy, because a lot of the tyre compounds fitted to performance cars harden and don't work very well in lower temperatures- so even if it is dry they can struggle much more.

Make sure you at least have good tread if you can't afford two sets of tyres for conditions, DON'T try and lower tyre pressures- it doesn't work, and DON'T underestimate how terrible your brakes really can be no matter what tyres you have underneath you.

End of the day a car with crappy summer tyres on it driven cautiously is going to be a lot safer than a lunatic who thinks his winter boots will save him.

Heat. Just looking for a set for my accord. Thank you

I've got a set of Avon ice touring St and need to replace two as they're around 3mm currently was thinking these as they're nearly £20 cheaper each! has anyone used either the Avon's or nokians? are they as good as they claim?

Wow bargain! Would have bought some if I hadn't already bought some used continental winter ones last week for not a lot less - doh!
