Nice to see this kind of deal - heat added

this was 66.48 delieverd, balanced and valve fitted btw :

I assume you mean fitted rather than delivered?

Good deal, voted hot... bought from BlackCircles before and got fantastic service from the local fitter.

£73.40 inc VAT each from etyres as a comparison, so does look good.

yeah they deliever to the fitter and from there u go and get it done

i think. first time i'm usin them

very good price HOT from me

scorching, managed to get 2 for £89.94!!! dont forget quidco

Well its £66.50 fitted with tyre shopper so not fantastic deal, but good for kwik fit.

These are awful tyres, better known as ditch finders.

Would avoid like the plague.

P6000 ditchfinders. No thanks. Get some of these which will work out cheaper and far superior:

Pay a few quid to get them fitted and you're sorted.

I'm sorry but I'll have to vote cold.

Reason being is that these tyres are utterly useless. The grip in the dry is poor and in the wet they are downright dangerous. Please consider buying a safer tyre before these, such as the falken 452. Still a budget tyre but they are much more progressive when they loose grip.

Edit; or the tyres teddy has linked to above. Both great tyres also.

I just got a set of the proxes, can't fault them. An excellent tyre. Only £40 each here (wirral) as well.

5% Discount for Armed Forces also.

Ah the old proxes, the boy racers are out in force!

To be honest for soft tyres I prefer Yokohama A539.

Get these delivered camskill.co.uk/pro…196 and a local garage to fit and balance them. Will work out much cheaper and you might live longer.:thumbsup:

the yoko's are comin up close to 100 per tyre - are they subaru recommended?

Agreed with the posters above, terrible tyres, do not get them, there are many other much better tyres at similar price on blackcircle or mytyres.

BTW what is the voucher referred to by OP?

For average drivers I think the P6000 is a good enough tyre. OK, if you drive on the limits all the time then these are not the tyres for you, but if you are not a boy racer then they are fine and a good price. I have them on my wife's A4 quattro and have no problems with them at all.

Used to run these on my old cav sri, 15 years ago lol

Good tyre, bargain,

I agree for the normal road user with a normal car driving then these are ok, but Avon ZV3 are just as good as this and £20 cheaper.

As we have tyre people in here, what do people think of the Continental Sport Contact 2?

I could see your point until you said they were a good price, they aren't. A few people have already posted links to better deals for better tyres. At the end of the day if you drive at 30mph everywhere then £20 remoulds would be fine also.

If you have a low powered, front or four wheel drive car, and drive slowly then yes, at £40 a corner these tyres might be a consideration. Rear wheel drive or if you like the odd spirited drive....forget about it.

Just my opinion (and a lot of others)

P6000's came as standard on puma's, but eventually ford turned to the Goodyear Eagle variants, cos of has already been said, the car's ended up in ditches and to be fair the puma has amazing cornering ability.......i've eagle tourings on mine

Well it more depends on what car you drive and how you drive and what you expect from a tyre.
The soft compound tyres from Yokohama, Falken and Toyo offer good grip in the dry but suffer in low tempretures and dont last as long, so the choice is yours.

I would avoid the cheap brands but Avon, Hankook make some good value tyres and the new Barum tyres (made by continental) have had good reviews.

Well I guess from your earlier post you want them for a scooby, and as you will be used to high running costs I would go with a soft compound tyre from Yokohama, Toyo or Falken, but expect to be replacing them every 10,000 milles at best. (more likely 7,500)

me?

no the guy recomended the yoko's and i searched them and it said subaru next to them

i'm using them for a toyota avensis. i'm not flashy enough to own one of them! *L*

Goodyear Nct 5's are pretty good in terms of wear and handling. My local Kwik Fit sharks quoted £109 fitted so there is a considerable saving to be made online. It amazes me how some people will pay these prices to a company who are quite frankly just rip off merchants.

the price is online but the great thing is that 66 fitted. i have to travel about 10 miles to my nearest fitter but even then i'm still saving alot takin into consideration the petrol

My husband is the service manager for our Local Ford Dealer and has had 3 company cars in the last year and everytime car had a different make tyre on it, Ford only buy the tyre that has this best deal at the time, this time the car has Hancock's, nothing to do with cars in ditches!

I always find it hard to compare tyres other than on price. I current have Kumo 's on my mk3 mondeo and the front at least seem to need replacing every 10k. How do the makes above compare with Kumo or the Goodyear eagles also mentioned above?

Rob

Thanks for the info on the NCT5 - they are the recommended tyre for our Chrysler Voyager, but used to be pretty hard to come by in our area for some reason.

apparently discontinued by goodyr

the excellance range i think replaced them

Goodyear eagle f1s are pretty much the best, try finding me a test where they don't come first or second.

from same seller, not bad at all either...

No matter what car you drive and how you drive it... There are only 4 things holding your car on the road.

You might drive like Ms Daisy but you cannot predict others, Its not worth saving a few quid buying "budget" tyres.
Save money by buying online from MyTyres, Camskill, or Blackcircles etc but get decent ones.

Probably best to define "decent" as it is obvious different people have different ideas..

well for my sins, i was an active member of a puma forum, and funnily enough about 90% of owners had pumas, and it was well regarded that the P6000 for the puma was poor, and the the best tyre, at least when i was last on there, was the goodyear. I am only saying for the puma and the P6000.

Well first I will point out that any tyre you buy here in the UK are not dangerous in any way. If you drive as per the speed limits and road conditions most tyres will do you fine. The problem with the P6000 that people have a problem is that they were introduced as a high performance tyre with a slow tyre degradation. Well as has been proved it doesn't happen, you can't have the best of both worlds.

If your driving a diesel I would look for a harder compound due tothe extra weight and torque of the engine. Hankooks and Michelin always do well.

Look out for makes that are made by big boys like Barum which are made by Continental in the same factory using the same testing equipment. They bring out a 'value brand' as to not devalue there premium brand name.

If you are happy with the tyre you have and the price is good why not stick with it.
