    Re: Winter Tyres

    Fitted these to the BMW just before I flew out on holiday as a) my alignment was badly out and b) it was slightly too hot to swap them then but I figured when I'm back next week it will be!

    They're a little more aggressive than I was expecting, but can't complain at the price I paid. Came to €399 delivered to the office from Germany. Camskill were the cheapest UK supplier I could find who wanted circa £125 per corner.





    Oh and tourers ftw

    Re: Winter Tyres

    If I were only running one set of tyres I'd go all seasons or winters I think. Winters in summer are a lot better than summers in winter.

    Re: Winter Tyres

    long term update on the Kumo Viers.

    they're not as good as the Quadraxers. They're wearing a tad faster and they don't feel as confident on wet roads.

    On Friday night, late, I had the 2 hour drive Bucks to Shropshire, and the motorway was fine and the cross country bit, the last 35 miles was wet and cold and damp.. and the Kumo's just don't have the... magic.

    I'm looking forward to snow to test them tbh... because currently they're not as godo as the Quadraxers in the wet. Still good tyres.. but on wet roundabouts with the muck and crap that lorries leave... they drift acceptably but on the faster twisty stuff they do the same and at rapid speeds, they're not as good.

    Re: Winter Tyres

    You wouldn't really want to be running them in that profile or width anyway. Second set of smaller wheels are the way to go. Most manufacturers recommend if you're running a rather wide setup to come down a size or two.

    Cheaper tyres, better ride, and less to cry about if they take a knock/the salt gets to them!

    I am keeping an eye on Ebay but the problem lies that, while they would be a smaller wheel for me, they are the larger wheels for the A3's etc so they go for decent money.
