Tyres by PaulT

On my wagon 215 55 16 tyres.......

Towards the middle of last year fitted a set of Avon XV5 tyres and not very happy about the life I have got out of them.

Drive up to 20,000 miles a year but do fit Winter tyres in the Winter.

The Avons have very little tread left so will need replacing. I have always veered away from cheepo cheepo tyres and have always stuck in the middle, hence the Avons. Do not drive madly so now wondering should I go for XZFTRGD Tyres made from used condoms at a cost of a bag of peanuts each or do others have recommendations on more suitable, i.e. long life, tyres

Hello Paul. In the past Continental, Goodyear and Uniroyal did a good job for my 75. All of them have been made in Europe. I'm sticking with the Goodyear at the moment.
