Hi @Marky-B thanks for taking the time to share your first deal post, I've added some more info to the deal title
Thanks Sigma
That's a great price. You can barely get cheapy Chinese tyres at that price. I swop my 18's to 17 rims in winter to fit an excellent set of Nokians I have. A lot of places will fit a set of tyres at about 40 quid if you smile nicely. (Many of the big tyre chains will officially charge about £70)
That's what I thought... £65 a tyre for a branded make you can't go wrong . Now im tempted to get a cheap set of alloys for winter to go with them
How would these be for summer? 👀
Not to sure as they are a winter tyre. Some reviews above in the link if that helps

How would these be for summer? 👀


Well they're rubbish in winter, so I wouldn't touch them in summer (and I've run decent winters year round regularly.)

They're cheap on the face of it and for an unusual size. But these tyres have scared the living daylights out of me, losing grip where they really shouldn't (on a cold, dry, ice-free road that summer shod equivalent's had no issues on.) To anyone thinking about getting them - my advice is don't.
Agreed, these are terrible.

Get some Uniroyal (or your preferred brand) if you want some decent winter tyres.

My experience is the opposite of this. I have run them on an Alfa 159Ti over 2 winters and two summers with no issues at all and got better tyre wear than the standard tyres. The first set was only taken off when I got a nail in the sidewall at 18,000 miles. I did move up a profile from 40 to 45 which made the ride more comfortable and stopped some whitelining. I found them particualrly good in deep water and the front was much more secure in roundabouts where the standard tyres tended to understeer.

If someone is looking for a 2012 159Ti Sportwagon with winter tyres on let me know. I have my new car now so should part with the Alfa. I don't need 3 cars.
I'll chime in too, terrible tyres, have them on my winter wheels as they came as part of a package. Mine are run flat too, so as well has having crap grip, they're solid over bumps too. Can't wait until they wear out.
Grrr first post ever for my size tyres at a bargain price and the majority think they are rubbish/dangerous ! Thanks for posting though.
Normally fit Goodyear Eagles F1 although have tried Michellin Pilot Sport 3 which I think are generally better, but more expensive. Its normally between £120 - £140 a corner and I've been unlucky with punctures in fairly new tyres and as I've driven on them then that's £120 down the drain.

Terrible wet grip 'E'. I would be very reluctant to use these. My winter tyres all are at least 'B' rated, and occasionally 'C', but never lower than that. Just my tuppence worth, but it is very noticeable that many of these 'Premium' branded tyres have very poor ratings even on their summer tyres.
They do seem cheap (at that size) but if they're as bad as people are saying they're not just poor value - they're dangerous!

What is "Whitelining"? I've heard of "Tramlining" (when the wheels want to follow the contours in the road surface) but not "Whitelining".

A term from my youth, probably the same. Some of my motorbikes suffered from this where you crossed a white line at a shallow angle and the wheel wanted to recross the raised portion pulling you back across. The 19" 40 proile tyres did this if you accelerated hard over a white line, the 45 profile didn't. I think it is a combination of steering geometry, tyre size and profile. The worst bike was an old Triumph Trident with a 19" front wheel which was strange as otherwise it took a bit of effort to get it to change direction. Perhaps these tyres need a bit of sidewall depth and compliance to work properly. Mine were XL

Thought it might be, just never heard it before.

Maybe similar to what used to happen when I was on two wheels as a youth, when on an old concrete local road that was joined down the centre with tar (don't see then very often these days). Get on the centre of that on 10" wheels (Vespa, Lambretta) when a car was overtaking in the opposite direction and a new pair of y-fronts was required before the end of the road.

I always use these, but worth checking Camskill and blackcircles etc before ordering:

oponeo.co.uk/tyr…r16
Camskill always worth checking out after doing your research on your tyres. After trying most brands of tyre find Goodyear and Michelin the IMO. Does anyone know if Dunlop is owned by Goodyear?
Last deal like this ended up with a guy recieving 2x 14 inch tyres. Hot if your size n they send right item.
Surprisingly enough, National Tyres were the cheapest the last time I looked at CrossClimates - Oponeo, MyTyres, Camskill etc all more expensive (and fitting was included with NT.) Worth giving them a bell and allegedly they'll price match online too.

No, the majority think they're a good tyre at a good price. The deal-temperature shows that.
You'll always get the same ones attacking anything tangible that is posted on this site.

Most of the time they're squabbling over whether a brass-handled shovel would beat a commemorative tea-towel in a fight.

mute them, it's satisfying.

Good price but now sadly OOS I will add to my Amazon wish list and hope they come back in stock.

Thanks for posting though.

Yeah, forget first hand experience and go with heat value.

These are cheap tyres, cheap tyres with poor performance. If that fits your criteria for a hot deal then happy days.

No, the majority have seen an 18 inch winter tyre from Dunlop for what appears to be a cheap price and voted not knowing the full story.

As I have no experience of these tyres I won't be voting either way.

That would be me.
Warning to others - I ordered these and received 2 x 175 70 14 Vredestein's, had to go through refund process as they were no longer available.

Did anyone order these? I'm interested to see what they send.

Keep the Alfa dude, the 159 saloon and wagon are two of the best looking cars ever made.

Me too lol, ordered these and got 14" vredesteins delivered today. After reading the rest of the comments on the thread I'm kind of glad they didn't come since I have a fairly high powered car
My 175/70r14 vredesteins arrived today. Amazon want me to arrange their return. What have they done for you? I'm reluctant to invest time or money to return the wrongly delivered tyres.
