The W rated version is available for £48.39 delivered from Tyre Leader. You can also search for a local fitting centre when checking out. Fitting can be as low as £5 per corner depending on where you are, but is normally around £10-£12.

Great tyres

Great grip, but wear isn't great at all. Had approx 15k miles on my last set, on a 1.4 Focus!

Interesting tyre reviews, Michelin used to be top dog but only comes 7th in the Autoexpress review

Who came first ?

Im looking for all year tyres for 2011 308. I drive about 25-30k a year in all conditions. Any recommendations please?

Good tyres these. I've got the 225/45/17s (about £100 per corner fitted). Good ride quality, low noise, good wet weather grip and wear is not too bad.

15k for a premium tyre is not unusual. Also don't forget that tyre technology is a compromise. The consequence of hard wearing tyres is typically lower grip. At least if you had had to do an emergency swerve during those 15k miles, a grippier tyre could mean the difference between an accident or no accident....

If you have a robin reliant are they still called 'corners'?

If I get 10k I'm happy out of a front wheel drive car. Although I have 200bhp through them

Bloody good tyres and at that price it's a no brainer. The misses runs these on her car and once the continentals rum. out of my new one ill probably go for these. have some heat.

I considered those but they only came in 10th place for wet cornering, so I went with the Goodyears in the end as I think that the risk of accidents goes up significantly in the wet.

I have had these tyres on the front of my Zafira for year and had some put on the rear wheels as there so good. Got these done by Vauxhall as they price matched Formula one. However Vauxhall noticed hairline cracks in the fronts, anyone else had these issue with their Goodyear? Goodyear don't believe it's an issue but assured me the tyres are warrantied for 5years?

If your like some of the ford drivers around here I wouldn't be blaming the tyres.(_;)

A triangle has corners, doesn't it?

Great tyres. I put these on my car for about £70 each around 18-24 months ago. I used to go for budget tyres but after using these I'll never bother with budgets again. Feeling the extra grip on journeys is re-assuring and having good tyres in the vital moments leading up to a potential accident is priceless.

Very useful - thanks

seems like on the only one that thinks they are crap, since i put these on my car it spins pulling away from junctions when the old ones didn't

I think that's more to do with dodgy clutch control.

For tyres I use Tyreleader, my local garage charges a tenner per tyre including balancing/disposal. They offer fantastic value for money but you need to order about a week in advance as they are dispatched from Netherlands or France. Even if one factors in the cost of laser tracking they often work out cheaper. Hot for this deal though.8)

But Autobild are the only magazine that rates them. Every other publication has them further down. Even Autobild themselves only rated the Michelin Primacy 3 14th in their wet and dry braking tests in 2012, so not sure why it suddenly jumps to 1st place in 2015 when its the same tyre.

That's a very dog-in-the-manger attitude.
If a deal is good and someone can benefit from it, then in my opinion it's hot even if it's no good to me.

I doubt it , if the tyres were a significant factor, a motor insurance quote would have required you to enter the tyre make and model. However I do agree there is a small factor but nowhere as big a factor on accident as say, driver competence, history, car type....

What a price

When your as good as driver as me, you only need budgets

Your incorrect just pointing fellow hukders to a cheaper deal. You have done the same more like with the bridgestones i listed I see.

Had 4 of these tyres on a Citroen grand picasso. The tyre centres (and i tried 3 different ones) could never get the front tyres balanced properly so had constant wheel wobble at 70mph. There are several reports of wheel wobble issues with these tyres. Needless to say I have changed all 4.

There must be something wrong with your wheels I think ! Several reports of issues with these tyres ? Never heard of any... please give us a link to confirm this.

Would not even consider fitting summer tyres nowadays as lots of the all season tyres are now on a par with summer tyres for dry performance but leave them for dead come the cold weather.

what did you have before?

great tyres especially on the wet.
Fitted these in both mine and misses car.

Only compliant is that they are a little bit noisy.

LOL. The braking distance in the wet between the best new premium tyre and a some brand new ditch-a-ling brand tyres is up to 15 metres.......that's the difference between you and your passengers being critically injured in a crash or avoiding it. I feel sorry for you that you're prepared to take such liberties with the lives of your passengers as well as other road users.
