    Default Neuton NT5000 where to buy?

    Hi All

    Read alot of reviews on here and other sites about 'Neuton NT5000' tyres.. need to replace my tyres on 56 plate vectra C.

    However I cannot find them for sale anywhere that will also fit them for me except neo brothers (north london)....

    I found a delivery only place (http://lovetyres.com/tyre/Neuton-NT5000) selling them at £66, However local garages want £15 a tyre to fit..

    any ideas?

    Many Thanks
    Steve

    Pretty sure the only place that sells and fits them is Neo Brothers.

    Down here its about £10 a tyre to be fitted and ballanced.

    To be fair it costs about £3-£5 per tyre to be taken away and £15 is roughly a quarter of an hours labour and it will take longer than 15 minutes per tyre if only 1 person is doing it.

    That site is out of stock and awaiting delivery from neo brothers.

    Give the guys at Wheels in Motion a call in Chesham http://www.wheels-inmotion.co.uk/index.php. Tony Bones, the boss, drives a Vectra 150 SRi and knows of this forum.

    See if they can either supply and fit or get a price for fitting only.

    Neo Brothers are the sole Uk distributor for Neuton tyres. Anywhere you do find them (and there aren't many places) they get them from Neo's. Best to go straight to the source and give Neo's a call

    Thanks everyone..

    What would wear better the NT5000 or the NT8000, They both have a treadwear rating of 320.. so will they wear the same?


    The really strange thing is all four tyres wear at the same rate (Vectra Design Estate 1.9CDTI (150)).. I would have expected the front to wear out before the rear.


    just for reference below is my last two sets

    Michelin Pilot Sport 3 lasted 13436 miles treadwear rating of 320
    OK tyre, good grip, not very quiet at motorway speed


    Bridgestone RE050A lasted 12430 miles treadwear rating of 140
    very slippery tyre, never felt that i could commit to a corner


    So just goes to show that treadwear rating is not reliable across manufacturers

    Haven't tried the NT8000's as they're new, but have been running the NT5000's on my tuned 2.0T estate for a few months now. Wear wise, the fronts are wearing a hell of a lot quicker than the rears but I would expect that the way I drive as I do tend to push the car quite hard most of the time.

    In the dry they're superb, can not fault them, they grip like cr4p to a blanket and the car goes round corners like it's on rails (although the suspension, poly bushes etc also makes a big difference to that).

    However I would say that in the damp/wet/ice it's a different story, they're not as good as a lot of people on here say they are (in my opinion). Previously I've always run Michellin Primacy HP's and they are amazing tyres in all weathers and give complete confidence no matter what conditions or situation. They are of course quite a bit more than twice the price of the Neutons so they damn well should be. The Neutons however really don't give me that confidence in the damp/wet/ice at all and I do find myself slowing down considerably compared to what I would do with the Michellins. The traction control ends up kicking in a hell of a lot more even just going round roundabouts in the damp and if I'm honest I'm actually quite disappointed by the adverse conditions performance of the Neutons now I've had them on for a few months.

    That said I think I probably would still replace them again when they're due to be done, purely for a cost saving, they are a good enough tyre for the cost and as said I can't fault them in the dry, they're superb, it's just the damp/wet/ice performance that really lets them down in my opinion but if you drive accordingly they're ok.

    That's a different experience for me; they are excellent in the wet when you'd expect them to be poor - they simply have astounding grip (even on a wet road below 7 degrees C).
