    If you simply want a tyre in order to pass the MoT and dispose of your Vectra C, they are ideal
    If you want a tyre for continued use, try something else...

    D/K how much they are from Tyre-Shopper but I've had Barum Bravuris from them before and they are a decent enough tyre (made by Continental, I think).

    Thanks mate, the barums are 9.50 more each. But after now looking at reviews of the wanlis people are saying they're noisy and crap in the wet. So may go with the barums.

    You get what you pay for. They will not grip, perform or last as well as a Premium brand, but if you do low yearly mileage and you don't expect too much from them they will be OK like any budget tyre.

    Only drives locally mate, 4k miles a year, budget ok. Even thought of going the part worn route, named brand £30 each fitted.

    Personally I would not go down the part worn route, at work we have seen some part worn tyres have issues and IMO it is not worth the risk not knowing the history. some people do fit them thinking it is a cheap way to get 'quality' tyres on their cars and that's their choice, but not for me!
