Bought 4 last year and they are quality, PS you buy them for a week or 2 of winter to keep your NCB safe http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/7758/fujifilm20101106112946.jpg

from £49 for 225x60x16 from mytyres (most indepndants will fit for £5 ish per wheel )

If it keeps you safe this winter then I think it's hot. Winter tyres arent just for snow and ice, they're designed to provide increased grip over normal summer tyres below 11'c where summer compounds dont warm/soften up.

It ain't winter yet.

I'd love to get a set but it's where to keep the normal tyres while these are on.

You're clearly talking though your anus, given the fact that we're only slightly past the halfway mark in November and last year the winter weather lasted until about March!

Oh, and overkill of the word snigger, esp since it wasn't funny the first time you typed it.

these are £74 each at tyrmen.co.uk, 4 = 74*4=10del= £306 delivered

there also 94H as opposed to the 91H YOU LISTED

ive got the same tyres, in 215-45-17 , top notch tyres, and tyremen delivered next day

Please don't vote cold just because ...



That's usually an invitation for me to automatically vote cold, but I will abstain from this one. Just don't get why some people feel the need to ask/tell/DEMAND that people shouldn't exercise their own free will.

Snow is a good excuse to call ur boss and stay home - as a result 90% of schools are shut and then parents have to stay with them..

It should be illegal to drive on summer tyres when the temperature drops below 7 degrees for a certain number of consecutive days (as it is in many countries)! All the accidents last winter contributed to the massive hike in insurance premiums. Many of the accidents could have been avoided if people drove on winter tyres.

Plus, it actually doesn't cost much to use winter tyres, because when you use your winter tyres, you don't use your summer tyres (so they last longer). So it's only the cost of changing the tyres (£5-10 per tyre) - definitely worth for the added safety.

P.S. I've already changed mine...

Fitted x4 on my car last week using the 10% off when buying 4, good tyre for the price.

It costs to buy the tyres in the first place, and then there is storage - where do I put the set I'm not using?

While I agree that it would be wonderful to have everyone on them when they were needed the logistics of it would be a nightmare.

At least some people realise that they are WINTER truest and not snow tyres. Will give increased grip in the lower temps of winter. It does not have to be minus figures to benefit. If you can afford to get a set of steel rims for them as it will save you in the long run (2 years) with the cost of swapping and balancing them. Also if you can get smaller rims then you will save on the tyres cost of the larger sizes.

You won't believe the difference a set of cold weather tyres can make until you try them. Last year we could not get up our road in normal tyres, we took the plunge and bought some Hankook cold weather tyres and had no problems after that.

According to a report I read, a two wheel drive with cold weather tyres is more effective in snow that a 4x4 with normal tyres!

What a pathetic statement, no one is saying you have to vote hot or cold let alone DEMAND, It is your choice to vote either way or abstain, the fact the OP made a comment about non drivers is fully justified as this could save lives.. Just vote as you see fit.. Your comment is worse than asking to not vote cold..

By the way..... Its warm because of the direction of the wind. Nothing else.

Be fair and compare like with like. You are looking at a different size and make, I assume, as I cannot see these Hankooks on mytyres for £49! They are £100+

I thought the massive hike in insurance premiums, was because of the T**ts standing in the middle of every shopping centre. Asking have you had an accident in the last 5 years

That is closer to the truth than any other "reason"

Shouldn't the price be £335.92 for 4 winter tyres delivered.
You have stated the cost of 1 tyre (which i undertand you have divided the previous figure by 4) but the true cost of 1 tyre is £87.73

edit..... price should be £325.92

Could comment on YOUR pathetic inability to quote properly, but instead will stick to some facts. Didn't say the OP was DEMANDING that people don't vote cold. The "ask/tell/DEMAND" comment was a general comment directed at the growing number of people who seem to feel they have to have justification for what way people vote on their post.

I'm sure any member of this site would love to have EVERY single deal they ever post, voted to over 500/1000/1500/2000 degrees or more, but that's not going to happen. Some people like 1 deal, while others like another (each for their own reasons). Some members might even say that people who have been a member for 5 and half years (without EVER posting a deal) have got NO RIGHT to comment on anyone else. I, however, believe in free speech/free will and support ANY member's right to vote hot/cold/or even not at all. Just can't stomach the weedy, insecure, pleas of "Like me! Like me!".

Grow a pair ffs!

p.s. Deal is now cold (because of bob (sticking his tuppence worth where is doesn't belong) gough. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it bob! (If you ever post a deal of your own, I might just vote it hot for a laugh, even if it's the worst deal ever. I have the power!).

Same problem here. There's also some inconvenience in switching tyres or wheels. I've just started trying out some all-season tyres: the Hankook Optimo 4S. This will be their first winter, so it's too early to judge them yet. They did well in Autobild tests and also in recent Auto Express tests:
autoexpress.co.uk/pro…tml

I'd be interested in knowing how they wear in comparison with Summer tyres.

Be careful of the speed ratings guys, I bought some winter tyres last year and had to look long and hard to find V rated available that my manufacturer states should be fitted according to the manual, I know you won't get to the rated speed unless you drive off a cliff, but H rated (130MPH) is slower than V (149MPH) and fitting anything other than the manufacturers recommended means you've got to tell your insurers and they usually up the premiums or invalidate your insurance, anything to rip you off a few quid...

BTW I've had Hankook on my GT4 for years and love 'em, and winter tyres on my 4x4 made a world of difference, stopped me 30 - 50% shorter distance and no wheel spin on takeoff at all, so well worth the expense... BTW winter tyres I got for 4x4 were cheap Nankang or sommat make, but I was very impressed

What problems would you have if you left winter tyres all year round?

Where did you source this info? Reports have indicated accidents on the roads are at an all time low, the reason (and only reason) is those in (very) minor accidents putting personal injury claims in for a quick buck not giving a damn who foots the bill for it.

I'm not disputing there will be accidents in winter, or the fact winter tyres are great but you can't blame the high premiums on the weather.

Absolutely ridiculous comparison with a completely different sized tyre, makes that no one has ever heard of and fitting of £5 ish per tyre which is wishful thinking.

Doing 30K+ miles a year and NEVER having bought winter tyres how come i have not had an accident then. Maybe it's because i adjust my driving to the conditions rather than depend on what rubber the car as.

There are probably just as many accidents caused by people putting on winter tyres then start to believe they are invincible on the road because of this

well said that man

There's an interesting video comparing the Winter performance of Summer and Winter tyres on the Auto Expess website:
autoexpress.co.uk/pro…tml

Of course, if it snows and everyone else comes to a halt on their Summer tyres, having Winter (or all-season) tyres may not help you get anywhere at all...

The supposed hike in premiums is made up imo. It's normal for renewals to be higher with the same insurer, I'm reasonably sure they colluded with the media to make up this rubbish to justify higher renewal quotes. In reality, im paying a little less than the year before, as is everyone else i know that spent 5 mins shopping around.

In Scandinavia, where swapping tyres in winter is well established many garages offer a storage service for winter tyres. You keep yours there for a nominal storage fee until you need them and leave your summer tyres there while you have your winter tyres on.
It would take some setting up here, but the reality is that we don't get the extremes of weather they do further north, so there probably isn't enough money in it for the garages.

Hmmm, doubt that very much. The biggest problem is the nut behind the wheel though, regardless of tyres.

Yes, so the deal price is £325.92, not £81.48
