    Default Suntek tyres on vectra 150

    Just fitted 2 suntek sport tyres to the rear of my vectra 150 got to say they must be the worst ever does not like to go round corners at all in the rain only fitted them as a stop gap and that they were for nothing but they must come off very soon so some advice for anybody looking for budget tyres stay away from these .

    I avoid all budget tyres, I the last few years i have only fitted uniroyals or toyos, after all tyres are the only thing between your car and the road.

    I have to agree with your findings, the tyre may well look amazing but the rubber mix used can result in your car feeling as though its on an ice rink, Rotalla, Goodride, Sunny, all read up well but had the grip of teflon on a down hill ski event

    I stick to Neuton or if I have to (like now) Nexen

    Surely that wasn't a surprise to you? If they were great in the wet and dry, we'd all be using them instead of paying 2 or 3 times as much per tyre for premium brands.

    I had to bin my budget tyres due to the rears randomly letting go in the wet regardless of what speed your doing,happened to me and the wife.I am now trying out maxxis maz4 victras and cant really say anything bad about them yet.Oh and for anyone whose looking for cheap tyres,DO NOT buy sunew tyres they are very dangerous.
