Found 15th Oct 2017
Hi all:

looking to buy some 225/55/r16 tyres. With so many options and different manufacturers claiming theirs to be the best.. difficult to choose.

Just wanted to ask "What is the best tyre out there.... best value for money"

Quite a strange size is it for 4x4?


It is a relatively unusual tyre so quite expensive, it's a wide tyre for only being 16" so I would say an old BMW or similar, something with a bit of power, but a bit old.

Been put off continental tyres since an incident we had on motorway.
We had them fitted less than a month and one of them burst while driving on motorway. That was enough for us not buy any more.

auto express do regular tyre tests (last one was 24 July and is online). Over the years the Far Eastern manufacturers have improved a lot. Sometimes the premium name tyres do less well than their price should indicate.

Michelin Energy Savers have been my tyre of choice for a few years now. Not the cheapest but have a long life and also AA rated at most sizes.

Michelin CrossClimates are geting good reviews as all season tyres - they really recommend them on all four wheels so difficult to change over to these cheaply as need to change all four at once! You can do one axle at a time but that is not Michelin's recommendation.
