Catskill oO

Camskill

just had these fitted. paid 52 all in at a local garage

Excellent tyres, stick like glue in the rain. Soft compound tho so wear pretty quick. For this price I can handle the wear rate

blame the macbook auto correct guys!!

Good price for that size go nicely on the Mondeo spent £120 a corner last time, can't muck about with that slamming a V6 Mondeo down rural roads lol

Thank youuuuuuuu

To be honest. I think this is the going rate for these.

I had these fitted a few weeks ago on the front of my focus, grip is good but I have noticed they looks flat even though they have the same pressure as my old tyres. Maybe they need more pressure because of the soft compound.

really really good grip of tyre. if you drivelow miles and its always wet they're ideal.

best tyre I've ever used. on rx8 and ed 30 gti .got mine for slightly more fitted via black circles. highly reccomend

GREAT tyres. Sticky as hell. Wear isn't great though. 8k miles or so and my rears are starting to look like they'll need replacing fairly soon. Tends to happen though : More grip = quicker wear

I think I got them for about this price fitted last year so I wouldn't say this is a bargain (as you've now gotta go get them fitted for probably around £10 a tyre). Great choice though if you're looking for new ones.

These have soft side walls - even the XL versions. Just had a set of 4 fitted and car feels a bit more floaty/wallowy than before because of this.

Camskill are great

I was interested in these at one point but as commented above the things which stood out to me on the reviews were soft compound (wear quickly) hence their cheapness and soft side walls which to me defeats the object of having this size tyre fitted to a car, unless you are the type of driver who hits their brakes every time they see a bend in the road! then this sounds like the tyre for you.

What car do you have?

Do you really notice a difference? I am thinking about getting these on the front, been using bridgestone potenzas but wanted to try these... My car is lowered and also a slight bit of stretch on the tyres (225 instead of 235) do you reckon these would be dodgey!

Brilliant tyres. In my Audi i noticed whilst driving in rain that these grip well

ive posted these in the past, great ultimate rain tyres.

These lasted around 8k on the front of my Mondeo as opposed to about 13k with other brands .
Grip is fantastic in the wet but they are quite noisy at speed due to the tread pattern.

great price. Unfortunately just send £500 but they are michelin pilot sport 4's ... hell of some tyres but hell of some price too!

Forgive the noob question....

So you order these (or other tyres) and have them delivered to the tyre fitters? Which companies are happy to fit please? I need four for my missus' car, so this would obviously be great for my pocket.

Cheers

Delivered to your home then just ring round local tyre garages and find best deal to have fitted and balanced. Normally about £10 a corner

These tyres are currently sold out in Eglwyswrw.

How long ago did you all last have a tyre change? I noticed this too last time I had new tyres (different make)

My understanding is that manufacturers are having to use softer sidewalls to meet EU drive-by noise regulations, so new tyres will be more squashy.

Heat for being cheaper than usual market leader tyreleader who cone in at £61.89 delivered


Worth checking the eu labels if looking at smaller sizes as they tend to lose their Arating for wet stopping in some 14-15" versions of these

You think wrong, this is not the going rate for these tyres. Hot OP, shame the 235's I need are £67.15.

The British winter tyre

Good price OP.

I need 2 new front tyres but my rear ones are the 225/45R18 W 91.

Does anyone know if these Uniroyals will still fit and won't cause issues when my MOT is due?

A few months ago, putting Continental SportContact5s on our Ford Kuga. Didn't notice a change then.

The car in question is a Golf GTI and had Achilles on it beforehand (previous owner's choice!). The soft side wall is a common complaint on these tyres Aside from that they're pretty good so far.

This around Camskill's normal price... actually now at £52.60. Postage per tyre decreases if you order more - 4 tyres is only £14 .

My car came with Pilot Super Sports, very soft, expensive to replace and not run flats, so I may well look at these as a replacement. No Spare in my car either, don't you just love BMW.

Normally go with Conti Sport or Goodyear ASY2 which are both under a ton fitted. Pretty good tyres and always manage 20k miles out of them. Might not grip quite as much though but I suppose it depends how you drive.

anyone any experience with how much a garage generally charges to fit/balance a pair if I have them delivered?

tyretraders have these for slightly less delivered. I just paid £238 for 4. Same size...

£10 at my local. £10-15 is a fair price. I'm sure someone will say their mate can fit them for £5 per tyre.

Does that include the alloy?

I have these fitted to the rear of my E92 320d, great tyre all year round and excellent in the wet. 5k miles in and I've got 5.8mm left doing mainly town driving.

Nowt wrong with the side walls

These are great tyres and the only ones that can succefully manage my cars power in the wet and I've tried the big boy brands and expensive tyres, these trump most imo.

Oh and they actually last pretty well.
