A full set of alloys with tires. They fit a lot of 4 stud wheels but you may need to buy wheel spacers also. Any way they are probably only £60 dearer than the tires fitted on their own.

It's all been said before on these deals. Cheap for a reason: awful tyres, not worth risking your life (and others' lives). Legal but not clever. Tests on line to prove it (try Autocar):

The Linglong equipped VW Golf Autocar used for its tests was still doing 27.8mph at the point where it had stopped on the Continentals.

Given the average rain fall in the UK, it's well worth thinking twice before fitting super-budget tyres on your vehicle. If you save ?75 fitting 4 budget tyres you only save 0.05 pence a mile over a 12,000 mile life of the tyre. With the risk of an expensive insurance excess and loaded premium for the next 5 years, not to mention what could happen in a worse case scenario, is it really worth it?


PS +£19.99 minimum 'fitting kit'.

Good price for what they are. If someone is looking for a cheap set of alloys/tyres, hard to beat. Occasionally these go as low as £199.

This is what your insurance company is talking about when they ask if the car has had any modifications.

Less occasionally these go off the road! Legal madness.

"Less occasionally these go off the road! Legal madness".

Could you translate into English?
Bottom line is this is a decent price for a cheepo alloy wheel and tyre package. All made to British Standards.
Ebay is full of similar deals. Do you want all such deals banned?
Some of us cannot afford to splash out silly money on over inflated tyre prices.
I have been driving for over 30 years, yet to have an accident, and my tyres are always the cheapest budget tyres I can buy.

"Less occasionally these go off the road! Legal madness".

What the f..k are you talking about? My understanding of what you, perhaps, are saying is. 'You occasionally use these for off road use but find it legal madness'.
Please attempt to make some sense using English.

he is saying that….. they are sometimes priced at £199 (occasionally)

but on more occasions ( regular) these tyres take your car offroad by accident because they are not very good.

Well that is how I understand it.

Thanks for you help. You will, however, find that I mentioned that they go as low as £199. He/she is just a plonker who has difficulty expressing himself/herself in English.
