Seems a good price for a well known brand.

EFFICIENTGRIP COMPACT

Fuel Efficiency: C / Wet Grip: B / Noise (dB): 68 / Noise (Bars): 2

Advances in tyre components and construction reduce overall tyre weight by 5%* for improved rolling resistance, while optimised pressure distribution promotes even tyre wear.

A new tread design features dual wide grooves, extra large sipes and multiple biting edges to cut through surface water for improved braking in the wet.

A rounder cavity shape stops the accumulation of water in front of the tyre to help prevent aquaplaning.

R14..... Is it for a 1985 metro? ha ha, sorry but that's a limited market these days. Cheap for goodyear though if they fit you car.

perfect timing, for my Renault kangoo (with the higher load rating). my local independent garage charges £10 to fit incl new valve and balance making it £40 all in.

Limited? Quite a few vehicles run on r14.

Not to mention many older vehicles.

£10 including vat per tyre, please note you will not be able to take these to your local Kwik fit or halfords etc as they only fit what they sell. if you buy a tyre off the web you must make sure you have a good nearby garage who will fit at a reasonable cost otherwise any real savings are lost

I spoke to Kwik Fit and they pointed out the massive difference between their drop in prices and their online prices, but, in comparison to an independent, they sting you for the cost of recycling your old tyres.. I suppose that means they don't burn them round the back though?

I got x 4 Falkens for around 270 with tracking done .. some good deals for what are basically Dunlops.

How do garages feel about u taking your own tyres in to fit. My local want £180 per tyre but I can get them online for £100 each?

Put your postcode in here mytyres.co.uk/cgi…110 and find a list of local garages who will fit, and prices. I got mine done for a fiver a corner.

These are actually GREAT tyres so if you got 14inch rims these are a bargain. Voting Hot from me

Some garages turn their noses up at you, some don't care and are happy to fit your tyres for £10 a corner.

Pretty sure 1985 metros had R13 at most.

Perfect for Citreon C3

Personally speaking, I wouldn't bother with summer only tyres any longer. All season tyres are so good in so many conditions that it seems false economy. Our last main car had them and it was perfectly happy on Scottish hill roads covered in snow. Getting them for our MX5 next. Should be fun driving on snow covered roads with the hood down. Good deal though.

If I was doing a small milage then I probably would do the same. But it's a better solution to have different sets if you can. I get considerably longer (mileage) life out of summer tyres only using them in the summer. The only downside of using winter wheels is that once you are a convert you are for life and every car has two sets of wheels. Not a problem if you are keeping the car for several years but with many people leasing for 2 years the outlay many not be worth it.

​i agree with Gavin's comments. All season tyres don't perform as well as summer tyres in summer and winter tyres in winter. You will suffer from lower fuel economy, longer stopping distances and higher wear to name a few challenges. if its low mileage 2nd or 3rd car, then the comprises may be acceptable?

​Can confirm, tyre garage local to me looked at me as if I had killed their pet when I brought my own in once and very nearly said no thanks.

They are always busy so I guess my custom wasn't necessary. Ended up paying 40 for fitting and balancing which more or less speed of the saving I made by buying online anyway.

Still use them but have a friend there now who gives me trade price which is a happy compromise for both parties

I don't know anyone who changed their tyres for each season.

Interesting
..................

Does the cost of switching them over every six months not offset most of the 'fuel economy' savings?

I bought 2 of these from blackcircles for £100 including fitting. My Astra needed 225/50 R17 W (98) and these were the best quality tyres I could find.

Where can I get the following tyre at good price?
Continental - Contisportcontact 5 **** (Run-Flat) - 255/45R18 99W - Summer Tyre (Car) - E/B/72

or
Continental ContiSportContact 5 255/45 R18 99Y with kerbing rib

I really need it to pass the MOT

Yes that is why cross climate tyres have their advantages. Many winter tyre owners have like me a second set of wheels. Steel wheels are good for winter as you don't have to worry about cleaning them and the salt eating your alloys.

Also depends on where and when you drive. If you work 9-5 in an office in a city then you are likely to have less need than say shift workers that work out of town.

Thanks. I like the look of the nexen but have 4 fresh continental 5 on the car but one has a chip on the sidewall which failed the mot so best to get same one. Shame on the Mercedes dealer who sold me the car with tyre in such condition.
