Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D - 235/40/R18 95W Winter Tyre £64.20 @ Amazon

Found 3rd Feb
Very cheap for a quality 18" tyre. £152 at Camskill, £190 at Black Circles.

I fully appreciate that this tyre will only fit certain cars, but I was searching for some tyres of this size and came across these premium tyres at poverty tyre prices.

Seems to be Prime only though.

Features


Optimised to handle every kind of winter condition, thanks to three different sipes positioned on specific parts of the tyre.
Benefits from Dunlop Touch Technology to give you a better feel for the road - crucial for establishing control and handling.
The special silica compound stays flexible at low temperatures to give you high levels of grip on wet and dry roads.

don't knock it until you have tried it, they are not just for snow, the grip winter or good all season tyres give on cold wet roads compared to summer tyres is amazing

But have you ordered these tyres before?

They've been posted twice; here where I ordered them and received the 175/70R14 Vredsteins and here less than a month ago where others ordered and received the Vredsteins.

Both threads have people saying that they're not that good.

Good luck if you've ordered them and please let us know what you receive, they're in my size but I can't be bothered with the hassle as Amazon have asked all of us to return them ourselves and not all couriers accept tyres. I returned them with proof but I've received a reminder email asking me to return them or my card will be re-charged. Time and hassle that I don't have time for again.

To save others some hassle, these guys will courier tyres paisleyfreight.com/

There is another rating in the Amazon listing that contradicts the rating you state. But this tyre seems to have good reviews elsewhere 82% said they would buy the tyre again. The choice is yours.

33190853-SqMjw.jpg
I have a Renault Megane 2011 1.5 dci.
My local garage wrote on my last service receipt I have 225/40/18 tyres.

Will these tyres from amazon be suitable for my Megane?

Just checked amazon built in help tool and only tyre showing that fits is £127.65
Think I will take ITMAs advice and not order, too much of a gamble. Excellent price found by OP though.
Heat added.

First time ordering these specific tyres but I have ordered them now. Will let you know how I get on.

As I said before I've never had a problem with incorrect items being sent from Amazon. But there is always a first time. Fingers crossed!

The pic attached explains how a tyre is measured. 225 is the width of your tyre tread, so these tyres being 235 will be 10mm wider than what's currently fitted to your car. They could well fit but personally I'd do a little more research before ordering any.

According to the previous threads 4 people received the wrong tyres last time and I did the first time and that's just the people who bothered to post
The most recent thread was less than a month ago too (repost).

I appreciate you posting these as in the face of it they are a bargain, but due to other's reviews I'd be hesitant and the liklihood is that you'll receive the Vredsteins.

Plenty of garages fit customer supplied tyres. Do a search on Camskill or TyreLeader to find garages that offer this service local to you.

Some fundamental gaps in your thinking
As always nothing for 235 60 18... But heat added.
N=1, but I have these on my Merc (in a different size) they are very good and seems to last very well (despite leaving it on in summer). Driven 30,000 and still have plenty of tread!

Now does anyone know can I use these instead of 225x40 R18 (front) or 255x35 R18 (rear)

Err...its below 7 degrees at the moment and has been pretty much since November. That's the point of winter tyres. They provide better grip at lower temperatures.
Good price for these tyres. I bought similar Bridgestone winter tyres for my van, and paid this price for part worn (7mm)!

It's not just about grip in snow and icy conditions (although they of course excel at this too)....but they increase the longevity of your tyres so can save money in the long term. Summer tyres wear our quicker in the colder winter months and winters wear our quicker in the summer so if you swap regularly both set's will last a lot longer than 2 sets of summers used all year round.
I drive around 60 to 70 miles round trip to work 5 days a week.
My car has done around 67k miles in total in the 4 and a half years I've had it (since new).
In that time I've only had to change the summer rears once and the front once (although the summer rears are close to needing another set). The winter rears have approx 3mm tread currently.
Changing 4 tyres in 67k is much better than if I used the summers all year round....and I drive a tail happy rear drive coupe.
The other bonus is wet grip in the cold. It's just sticks (even when I don't want it to )
I brought a 2nd hand set of alloys off ebay for £50 and put the winters onto them so I just jack the car up twice a year and swap them out myself. Takes about half an hour.

Exactly the same here. Been doing it for about 8 years now, grip and tyre wear are vastly improved by switching between summer and winter tyres - would never go back to using summer tyres all year round. However there is an up front cost so you do have to take a long term view on it. With the current popularity of lease deals where cars are often returned within 24 months, you wouldn't see the cost benefit.

Why would summer tyres wear out quicker in the winter?

Why would summer tyres wear out quicker in the winter?


They're made of a harder compound than that used in winter tyres. In winter the summer tyre is very hard and allows more friction between the road and therefore wears out quicker.
Winters have a soft compound which stays soft in cold conditions but too soft when the temperature goes higher and the grip reduces and they wear out quicker than in colder temperatures.

You posted an opinion without expanding on why/justifying it, such as whether this is from actual personal experience or not. Then, subsequently several others have done this and the evidence seems firmly counter to your opinion.

Doesn't matter if you drive a ferrari or a lada, the point of winter tyres is that they give you more grip in the winter, hence the name "winter tyres". It's kind of obvious really. But you did ask the question.
How much do garages tend to charge for fitting? Ballpark? I'm Midlands
