I found out quite a while ago that my using the following companies I could get a decent branded tyre for only a little more than my local garages were doing budgets for.

http://www.tyresavings.com/
http://www.asdatyres.co.uk/

Both companies offer an order online and pay at fitting garage of your choice. I like this idea.

With some top brands you are paying for a name. With budgets you get what … With some top brands you are paying for a name. With budgets you get what you pay for. Tyre manufacturers should be forced to show their stopping distances done by independent test reports. I have seen a few of these reports done with a vw golf testing several tyres. Budgets are budget for a reason. Some will be better than others but what good is wet or dry grip or how long they last if they take up to 7 to 8 metres further to stop at 70mph. That's the difference in writing your car off or worse compared to a near miss. 8 metres is 26 feet in old money. That's probably long than your living room. I won't buy budgets no matter how skint I am. The test I saw was on a dry road. The branded tyre was a Continental and the budget was starred out but you could make out the name which was A***LERA.Save your money and put it towards a cheaper brand name Dunlop or Goodyear and know you will be safe when you hit the brakes.

I'm running Bridgestones as my summer tyre at the moment, would say they are better but close to some Kumho KU31s I had several years ago, gonna try Good Year next.


yeah i know the cars only done less than 5k in last 3 years i only ever drive it at weekend just for fun, your prob right tyres prob been on there for years never thought of that lol

If you can't afford to put decent tyres on your car then you can't afford to drive a car. It isn't about how powerful your car is (although that has an effect), it is about how long it takes the car to stop in both wet and dry conditions under heavy braking. These tyres took an additional 18.9 metres (62') to stop from 70mph in wet conditions, and 4.4m in dry conditions, than the best rated tyres in the 2012 autobild tyre test.

In a motorway situation that is the difference between stopping with a huge gap between you and the car in front and ploughing up their backside and breaking your legs.

Please please please why 18" tyres on a fiesta???
haha bet it looks good lol

Not an understatement, if I had said "another excellent South Korean tyre company" that would have implied Nexen are also excellent. I was actually pointing out they were both Korean rather than Chinese.

I'm more impressed that Mini fit Kumhos to the John Cooper Works GP edition.

I used Toyo T1-R on my S2000 terrible tyre, car felt like a blamanche going around corners very soft side wall!
Wouldnt use again, although could not Fault wet and dry grip the car just felt unsafe, Very unstable and dangerous on cornering

Had these on an Leon Cupra years ago and were really good but on an RX-8 (in 225-45R18) the sidewall wasn't stiff enough and compromised the handling.For a hot hatch (Golf, etc) for which this is a common tyre size then recommended.



Went for 235/40/18 ultrac sessantas for the RX8, big improvement over the Bridgestone re040's.

EARS is a name from the past - bought bits for my RS2000 from them in the early 80's oO

seems a good price. Heat given...

Has any one used Maxtrek Maximus M1 245/40 R17??? going for 54£ with roll resistence category of C and wet grip category Of B on EU tyre label??

92 load rated = 500kg per corner side wall should be stiff enough, wet grip diabolically poor, fuel efficiency poor not really a good tyre even at this price doesn't say what wear rate is either assumed to be a soft tyre so quick me thinks! Not really much for this tyre pattern as they can't shift the water at high speeds hence why a lot are going back to the asymmetric pattern.
