not really relevant for winter tyres


E grip not relevant for winter tyres when that’s when we get the majority of rain?
E fuel and E wet grip, that’s not good.

Slightly cheaper at F1 if you have one locally. Voted hot though as decent price.

What a bargain! These are very good tyres and probably equal to the Michelin / Continental equivalents at half the price. Hot.

It is for me, I’ve been using winter tyres for 15 years now.
I was doing 30000 miles a year.
I found that putting them on in November until March worked very well.
Never missed a days work.
But as the snow melted you needed good wet breaking tyres.
Goodride SW608 worked well. C and C rated.
Im waiting for this years new stock as winter tyres are only good for 3 years max
I might go for a set of GOODRIDE Z507 this year.

Yeah sure... I'll put them on as soon as snow shows up.... and swap back to summer/all season as soon as it melts... these tyres will easily last 20 years in this country..

These are winter tyres and defo not made for winters we get in this country (well maybe for scottish highlands).
If it's p**sing down constantly for 4 months like it does... you need Uniroyal RainExpert/RainSport tyres (wet grip A)... not winter tyres. Winter tyres are also much softer than all season tyres and they wear out much quicker too if used in non-winter conditions (temps over 0c and dry roads).

Have to laugh at 'fully fitted', as opposed to partly fitted?

Thank the Tyre Lords this tyre is 3D, makes it so much easier to pick up and put on the car, just think how it used to be with those 2D tyres, I bet it was a nightmare.

Why only 3 years for winter tyres please

Why only 3 years for winter tyres please


Looks like they have changed their minds with regards to lifespan.
Found this on my tyres.


summer tyres should be replaced at three and a half years and winter tyres after a maximum of seven years (assuming that the tyres have only been used each winter).

In the past the silica in the tyres would degrade, making them harder and the tyres would them act more like summer tyres.
So as tyre companies sell 2 year old stock as new you could keep them for upto 5 years.
Check the rim for the 4 digit number ie 1520, made on week 15 year 2020.

Yep, I am also a fan of Goodride winter tyres. Excellent value for money, with excellent grip in the snow and ice.

Do you go up or down a size.
I like to go down from 215/55/16 to 205/55/16 I find you get better grip and sharper steering.

I generally have just stuck with regular size, maybe try next time.
They are mandatory in Switzerland, Austria and Germany as far as I know but don’t really see the point here to be honest.

Not if it's going to stop me being cynical and sarcastic.
Will someone please reassure me they do what I do and leave the same tyres on all year round. I'm worried that I should be changing my tyres like I change my coat.

Fear not mate, I use the same rubber in the winter as the summer.
Am in the south so just summer tyres all year. Planning to move to Derbyshire so would look into all season then. If in Scotland then I would be looking at using a winter set and a summer set. Depends on Geography.
I live in Glasgow & prefer to keep all-year, rain or summer tyres on all year round. Dont see the point of winter tyres here for the 3 days of snow we get. In fact I think it's more dangerous as the grip of winter tyres is much more inferior than other ones.

With the amount of scare mongering going on you would think most people had shares in the tyres companies.

Dunlop Wintersports got my out of a lot of trouble when it badly snowed a couple of years ago in Dorset. Fitted mine to a front wheel drive VW T5 van and it breezed through, when everyone else was totally stuck with their summer tyres. May only need fitting for a few months of the year in many places in the UK, but much more confident in any conditions below 10C. Expect to pay at least £100 a corner normally for these, so that's a good deal.
Any deals for 295 40 21 please?
Thanks

I’ve just completed the North Coast 500 and the roads in the Highlands are absolutely superior to anywhere in England

Presumably in the UK, where we fairly rarely get snow, what you do depends as much on where you live and where and how often you drive (and how reliant you are on driving) than anything else.

My commute involves a potential fair distance over country roads which get pretty icy in the winter and so I do use separate summer and winter tyres. I just want to know when I press the brake pedal the car will stop! To be honest, if you are thinking of keeping the car long term anyway the only 'cost' is the extra set of wheels (for me £100 on ebay) and the hassle of an hour spent changing them over in the Spring and Autumn. I use Nokian winter and summer tyres (WR4 and Line/iLine respectively) and can recommend both highly. Performed amazingly when we had the 'beast from the east' a few years back - despite having a tiny 2wd car.
I wonder, can you buy these over the counter as my daughter works here and has a discount card and trade card discount???

In my neck of the woods, it snows once in blue moon and the roads are either well gritted and free of snow/ ice or otherwise, completely gridlocked and getting to work would take all day if you tried. Having 4WD is more useful than which tyres you have got, or snow chains if you are driving in the serious stuff. Any sort of rubber is going to slide on ice if you brake very much.

I view summer/winter tyres as being more relevant say in Canada where you have very extreme temperature differences across the seasons and it is difficult for a single type of tyre compound to work properly across the range.

I would do the same if I live in Dorset/Devon/Cornwall where the country roads are icy or snow in the winters. I was at Dorset for 3 days last September I love the place just Iike i love Devon, Cornwall, Wales & lake District etc, although I visit in the summer months like most tourists.

I drive those country roads all the time when I visit, cannot mess with summer tyres in icy snow surface conditions for sure.
