The best all-season tyre: Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons 175/65 R14 82T just for £50.10 delivered at mytyres.co.uk!!

A fantastic price for the BEST all-season tyre in the market.

Given that the UK (and more importantly in my case, London) weather is not super harsh, this is the best compromise, with no need to change/store/re-balance tyres once a year. All-season tyres are much better than summer tyres in winter but not as good as full winters in winters.

I appreciate that this will not fit all cars with this exact size, but if you have a small car on R14s, do not hesitate to buy these!!

I also appreciate it does not include fitting, but mytyres.co.uk provide a map with their nearest participating affiliates and prices can be as low as £4 a tyre to fit (although never mix summers with winters/all-seasons!)

Have 'lost' 2mm in 15 months/8000 miles.

At least not poor chinese stuff from halfords. I use GY/Dunlop in the summer and Hankooks in the winter time. Size 205/55/16 not much more expensive than yours, especially when you add £5-10 per tyre for fitting service

Indeed - Kwik-Fit are nothing more than clueless grease-monkeys.

Currently using Fulda kristall Montero 3 winter tyres. But as I now have to store them in my loft when they are worn I may go all season as they seemed to have moved forward in the last few years.

Utter tripe EU badges when it comes to Winter tyres. Fuel based on Rolling Road resistance on a dry surface. Grip based on a Wet road not a cold wet road or frost or snow.

A nice deal but Nokian might object to you calling this the best All season Tire, it certainly isn't

He didn't call it any sort of "tire", this is a UK site offering UK deals. Love your random use of capital letters, incidentally

Why are you looking so smug?
The recommended tread depth before changing tyres is 3mm. Yes the legal is lower but that is a different matter.
So you bought a tyre with 60% of its recommended life left! I don't think you saved 40% off new prices.
As for you quoting 'tyre snobbery', are you not contradicting yourself by mentioning Michelin, the premium Brand.

Free nitrogen fill.......

Hahahaha

Utter rubbish it is pointless

As these will be used all year round you will need to factor in higher fuel costs vs A rated lrr's. But on the upside your less likely to slide off the road than you are with more fuel efficient tyres.

I find Asda tyres are really great value including fitting and if you can't wait for delivery kwikfit will normally price match. My car has run flats which seems to always push the price up. I do a huge amount of miles (35000-45000) and currently have pirelli's which I'm told are good, is this true or want would you suggest?

Anyone got any recommendations on where to go for a good deal on run flats?

If you don't want a specific manufacturer I always buy my tires from:-

blackcircles.com

Begs the question: is it safer to use average performing all weather tyres like these, or a set that will excel in normal conditions, but underperform during winter?

If you have the space to store these, after swapping back to something more grippy in spring, it's probably a good deal.

And I suppose if you live somewhere that sees a lot of rain, you might as well leave these on and forget about it!





Cold these wont fit my lambo

I started using winter tires a few years back.

Obviously you have to shell out for the initial set but you then spread the wear between your summer and winter sets. Also the winter compound is a lot more hard wearing in my experience (as long as you don't run them above around 12 degrees) so my winters have lasted me getting on for 4 winters..

Give the intro, what do you think?

All all season tyres wears very fast and will do 10000 miles as maximum. No point to use here in the UK.

Incorrect in this case, please do your homework before spouting rubbish..,,

Best tyres I've ever had!!!

These are presumably being sold cheap to clear stock as the Vector 5+ is now available. That said these are still excellent tyres at a great price.

Some of the comments posted on this have been enough to make me LOL.

For anyone after other makes, sizes, types of tyres I strongly recommend you take a look at camksill.co.uk - the website is a bit of a dog but there prices are normally exceptional and the service first class. I heartily recommend the Falken ZE914 summer tyres as being a mid range tyre that can compete with the best, but I digress....

Avoid all season tyres! Had fitted last autumn as was traveling to acros Europe, where winter tyres(or all seasons tyres are compulsory at winter) and done 13950 miles only-bloody hell, wears so so fast.

Cheap, but hardly any cars these days have 14" wheels.

Which all-season tyre?

After reading the comments on the post it seems like the person who posted the deal has a real attitude problem. My comment was just explaining what I have now and asking for advise from those with experience. My comment got slammed as did pretty much all other comments. Great community sprit! Soooo anyone kind people out there have any advise? My car has run flats so I find they are expensive, currently have Pirelli which were from kwikfit who price matched asda tyres who where the cheapest I could find at the time for a common brand. I do like 35000 miles plus a year. Any advise would be appreciated.

Part worns for £10-15 fitted and balanced.

Have some heat though as someone has to buy new ones so I can get mine cheap.

Your first statement was about Asda and being good value - which I contradict.

Why don't you have a read of tyrereviews.co.uk/? It has all the leading tyre tests and would answer your queries...
