    although they may all perform reasonably in dry conditions they generally give poor/potentially dangerous performance in wet/damp conditions, so if you live in a location where you may drive in these weather conditions - think again !

    Autocar Tyre Test - Budget Tyre Performance

    “We expected the bargain tyres in this test to fall short of the Continental, but we were not prepared for just how poorly some performed.”

    The results are shocking. To get the full test results you'll need to buy autocar this month, but the results from the wet braking speak for themselves:

    Continental: 31.7 metres
    Nankang: 33.8 metres
    GT Radial: 35.8 metres
    Wanli, Triangle and Linglongs: 40.2 metres

    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

    I wouldn't skimp on tyres, they are the only thing that keeps the car on the road in bad weather. Certainly worth another £25-35 extra per corner. I'm pretty certain your insurance excess would cost you more in the event of a accident

    Thank you!
    Another to add to the list - Durex

    Well you might as well wrap a condom round the rims IMO as fit any of the ones you've listed. Durex will probably give you more grip in the wet as well.

    Seriously, as others have said, please think again, especially if it rains and other drivers are around.

    Falkens ain't too bad if you want value for money and grip. Lots fitted on here. Me - Uniroyal Rainsport II every time.

    I don't want cheap tyres...but my budget is 100-120 maximum for a pair. I would love a pair of bridgestone or michelin or pirelli, but I would have to choose something to suit me. personally I would go for primewell but I don't know...
