    Default Goodyear to rename tyres

    A heads up for those people that continue to use and fit Goodyear tyres

    As we all know the Vectra C was offered with Goodyear tyres and the NCT5 was fitted as standard

    Many people changed to the GS-D3

    A new assymetic tyre was also introduced (inspringly called Assymetric) and many people swapped to this as the GS-D3 was withdrawn
    Earlier this year this too was replaced by an updated version, the Assymetric 2

    From 2012 the NCT5 (tread pattern) and Assymetric 2 will be withdrawn, both being replaced by a new NCT5

    So if buying Goodyears tyres next year be well aware of this change, and make sure you are NOT sold old stock with the old tread pattern
    Stock code is NCT512

    A simple solution would have been to be call it something else...
    Prsumably they did this to make it easier for those already using the NCT5 and keep existing customers

    Ironically, I tried to stick with Goodyear tyres as the Michelin tyres I wanted were not available for the Vectra C (well they were but about 50% more expensive)
    After testing the latest Michelin tyre earlier this year I now have new Michelin tyres on my car, the retail price was revised in November, and the final public release tyre (Michelin Pilot Primacy 3) has a tread pattern almost identical to the latest NCT5

    I'll bear that in mind. Mine had the NCT's on it as purcahsed, I was one of the ones had no problems with them at all, drove fine through two winters. On Neutons now so won't be requiring new anytime soon.

    Me too, I went through one entire set of the NCT5 without any issues
    However it was the price, at £150 per tyre (as it was then)
    Good to see the NCT5 (2012) is going to be launched at £85 to £90 (not fitted)

    Easiest way if telling the date on a tyre is the date stamp in a rectangle is a four digit code

    For example 2012 would have been manufactured in the 20th week of 2012 and 5011 would have been made in the 50th week of 2011

    Hath when your looking at the tyres our buying ..is also an easy way of seeing how old the impress stock is at the garage your buying from

    It's not always a rectangle, on the Michelin it is in an oval

    Not much good during the ordering process
    As above you could end up with the old tread pattern or the new NCT5 if you simply ask for Goodyear NCT5
    Then arrive at the premises and find it is this years version
    As above, they really should have given this new tread pattern a different name!

    A big clue should be the difference in price, but some outlets may revise the price of the old tread pattern to clear old stock

    Even simpler for the customer is to not buy NCT5's ever again.

    The original ones were ditch finders, what's to say the new ones aren't any better?

    Look at it another way, having once owned an Allegro, I wouldn't want another one knowing how crap they are.
