Decent budget tyre, not remoulds like most other cheap tyre places sell

23 Comments

I was just looking at these as they fit my Rover ............ shame the delivery charge is so high when other tyre places charge a flat £3

Ok, if you can fit them yourself or have a mechanic mate.

what an awful website, puts me off buying as it looks so cheap

Camskill hasn't changed in years, I used to get all my tyres from there, nowadays it's competitors have caught up so I just go the cheapest.

What are you basing that on? Personal experience or reviews?

Decent budget tyre



Its based on the notion that the tyre has been certified for use within the EU. The definition of "decent" is- 'of an acceptable standard; satisfactory', therefore, what do you not understand about the post?

So nothing to back it up then. Just because a tyre has an EU certificate it doesn't automatically make it any good, there's some truly horrific Chinese ditchfinders out there. Without any reviews this may well be one.

I ask a simple question and you get all uppity and defensive.

I'll ask again then. What are you basing your opinion of the tyres being decent on?

lol. Get a grip. I answered you already. Decent means "satisfactory". Someone might need a cheap tyre and the post is for a tyre. It does the job it is intended for. Of course there are more expensive tyres out there, but you get what you pay for. I didnt say they were good, didnt say they were bad. If you would prefer I list them as "awful" I can, but that would be based on no evidence. Even the best of tyres can fail and most crashes are driver error, so I dont know what you are wanting here lol

Simply listing them as 'budget' would be the decent thing to do. You have no idea how they perform so why describe them one way or the other.

Spending more doesn't necessarily mean you will get a better tyre, I've used excellent mid-range and awful premium tyres before, hence why I asked what you based your opinion on.

I do know how they perform, they are giving ratings on the following things
EU Label - Fuel Efficiency E
EU Label - Wet Grip C
EU Label - Noise Class 2
EU Label - Noise dB 71
EU Label - Category C1

I would be more inclined to believe the people who have tested them rather others opinions.Based on those EU ratings the tyre looks decent to me, end of

lol quality bickering, someone got schooled on how to rate tyres

I hope you realise the people who test them are the same people who made them. They are given guidelines to follow such as temperature, water depth, however the parameters for this are fairly large. They also barely scratch the surface for testing, no dry braking, wet handling or tyre life.

Of course you could look at the reputation of the company and gauge the results, unfortunately they don't seem to have one and look like they are riding the Uniroyal name.

go for uniroyal instead can be had for not much more.

Of al the things to scrimp on, tyres shouldn't be one of them. They are your lifeline to the tarmac.

True. Changing a wheel is so hard.

lolyehright

True. Changing a wheel is so hard.



The tyres don't come fitted to wheels you know.

What a load of pompous drivel, if you drive to the speed limit and the Highway Code then even the most "budget" tyres will perform in accordance with the appropriate standard they have been manufactured to (providing they are not fake), as usual inverted snobbery takes the forefront instead of supporting a post that some people would find useful. If you wish to spend more on tyres then that's your perogative, but don't **** off people that either don't want to or can't afford to!

Is that a fact or an opinion?

It's a fact, the ratings are self certified by the tyre manufacturer. There's a pdf on the web with the test conditions if you want to look further into it.

Michelin have a page detailing the tests here
http://www.michelin.co.uk/tyres/learn-share/buying-guide/new-tyre-grades

The parameters for wet grip are especially dubious.
Winter tyres tested between 2° and 20°C
Summer tyres tested between 5° and 35°C
Water depth between 0.5 and 1.5 mm

My winter and summer tyres perform massively different at either end of those temperatures. The stickers were pretty much a waste of time as they don't come close to a full independent true test of a tyres abilities.
