    Vehicle : Vectra CDTi (120)

    Trim : Exclusiv


    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 37768

    Default Brilliant Cheap New Tyres :-) !!!!

    I'm running the Vectra on 18" wheels now and needed some decent gripping tyres but at a cheap price.

    Don't laugh but found these :-

    Ling Long Green Max

    Bought 4 of these on a 235/40/18 W rated too

    £263.92 all in !!!

    Admittedly I wasn't expecting much but these tyres are graded :-

    Fuel Economy = E
    Wet Grip = B
    Noise = 72 db

    Fact is these tyres grip and perform very well indeed in the wet and dry even on the ice and snow.

    They also have good reviews online if you search for them.
    Hoping this helps as I'm very satisfied and I don't drive steady either and they perform very well !!!

    These are a brand new design and manufacture they were designed by Germans and Finnish then made in Ling Longs new factory in China. As for noise there a lot quieter than the Falkens and Nang Kangs I had before.

    Check the review above and you'll see they outperformed some of the bigger names such as Bf Goodrich. They came 4th in the survey which can't be bad at all can it?
