Not seen these cheaper, easy enough to take out a trial to Prime if you don't have it.

This size fits BMW 320d and presumably most 3 series.

I would advise to check previous posts for these tyres as lots of people complaining about very weak sidewalls...

£58.95 fully fitted at f1autocentres with COMPA2015 code.

not sure why you misspell wintry but each to their own


Is this a discussion about tyres or grammar? Both wintry and wintery are valid. I prefer the latter.

Anyone's seen branded 245/45r18? For less than £100?Thanks


Uniroyal Rain sport 3 can be had for £100. If you want cheaper. Nexen N'Fera SU1 at £75, and even cheaper Goodride SA37 at less than £50. Another worth a look would be Falken ZE-914.

I brought the same tyres for my lexus, but they were over double the price.


Where did you bring them from?

Cheers. Timing is spot on - just paid £40 for some budget tat.
Got these fitted on the back of my 320d last week. Big improvement, mine where fitted by Kwik-fit £62 a corner.
These are my preferred tyres. Will go and check to see what condition mine are in

Decent price for fitted, I can get my local guys to go to £5 a corner if I combine it with other work such as MOT or oil & filter change

I'd rather pay the extra and get a set of CrossClimate+
I had 4 of these and they were terrible, always looked underinflated and made the vehicle feel lethargic. When I got them changed and moaned about them at the garage the guys who work there said loads of people complained about them. Got Toyo's now, lots better.

Cross climate might be a better tyre for wintry conditions but OTOH that was 1 day so far this winter & the extra cost for me is £30/ tyre - for a far more inefficient tyre in terms of fuel & grip the other 364 days of the year

It's not just for wintery conditions: it's an all-season tyre offering better ride quality, lower noise and better steering feel as well as the cold weather benefits and with no penalty in wear rate or fuel economy.

Given that the tyre makes the contact with the road, I personally wouldn't skimp for the sake of £120 in your case.

Had high hopes for these tyres, went for them rather than continental contacts to see if they last longer but don't find them as stable, weak wall maybe? The test will be if they last longer
Good price, but I've have a set of these for a few months and they are bit the best tyre. I've had a few moments of over steer on roundabouts and are not very good on wet roads.

That what first line of description says, but there is a solution:
As OP suggested: "take out a trial to Prime if you don't have it."

Or a new Amazon account. We are 5 in this family so each have an Amazon a/c - there's no minimum age requirement. Plus my wife keeps a separate Amz a/c for business expenses.

Won't invalidate insurance (nor void the warranty if it still has one) as long as it is a standard alternative spec for the car.

Own-up Who brought him? and why won't he shut up?


Because this is a public forum. Are you having some issue here?
I can highly recommend the Nokian Line tyre. I've had them on my Vauxhall Astra for the past 3 years and wouldn't put anything else on there now.

They handle amazingly in the wet, flying through surface water like a hot knife through butter at all speeds. Stopping in the wet and dry is excellent too, as well as grip in both. I can't comment on the standard walls as I've always purchased the XL tyres, and the rolling is almost non existent.

They're currently £54 a tyre at Oponeo. I've always ordered from them and never had any problems, they usually arrive within 2-3 days.

The first set I bought went on the back for 9 months, then I switched them to the front at 7mm. I ended up getting 20,659 miles out of them with mixed motorway and city driving, they had 2mm left before I put some new rubber on.

The rears had only lost 1mm over 10,000 miles before I put them on the front and a new set on the back in November last year.

Yesterday when I changed the headlights, the fronts were only down to 5mm and they've already clocked up a total of 12,000 (Rear and front driving), so I expect to get another ~8,000 miles out of them which I'll be happy with.

Had them delivered to fit elsewhere, they are very soft walled and didn't last that long in comparison with many other tyres I've had fitted.
I did have Goodyear efficient grip. ( not sure if this is an updated version) just look at the reviews for them. Was good at first. But the noise they made when they was half worn. I had the same problem of the tyre making a noise like a wheel bearing had gone. I also had Goodyear (different type) on my previous car that kept going out of balence. I never use Goodyear again.
Might be cheaper in costco next week - they are currently £52 something each (inc vat) but they have an offer starting on monday where you get up to £100 off 4 goodyear tyres - depending what the offer is on 16" tyres it might just edge this and no hassle finding someone to ft them
I switched from uniroyal rainsport to these and have had loads of issues.

2 of them randomly lose all their air despite checking for leaks. I presume it’s from after going over a bump and seal failing.
1 of them had a fault in the sidewall within a week, leaking air constant and had to be replaced
and the other always looks flat despite it being at proper pressure.
Outstanding tyres
