    Default Recommend me some tyres

    I will be needing to replace all 4 tyres very shortly on my snowflakes and would like to know what you all have fitted on yours. Ive seen some kumho ku31 ecsta sport, any one have these fitted as they are a good price @ £358.00 for a set of 4.

    Getting a set of THESE fitted tomorrow. I know they are not 19's but have been recommended by many people on here.

    Took me about 3 days to decide though and found Camskill, again from recommendations on here, to be the cheapest.

    Hope this helps,

    Paul.


    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    I've had these on my rear wheels for a year or so now and recently swapped the worn out NCT5's on the front from another pair ready for the winter weather.

    I have certainly noticed the difference that the reinforced sidewalls make - I have the standard soggy suspension and the ride is now definitely firmer with less roll when cornering.

    Also they have the built-up rim around the edge of the wheel to help prevent kerbing - handy for me as I can never seem to quite remember how wide the car is when parking at the side of the road.

    Im on my second set of Kuhmo's now and think that they are an excellent tyre. Always used to have Michelin's but wont be going back.
