New tyre needed - recomendations please !
I need four new boots on my 159sw. I currently have 225/50/R17 98W Toyos fitted, but, apart from the fact they are now down to about 2mm tread, I don't like the way they skitter about in the wet - they are great in the dry, but, no confidence in them at all in wet conditions, so, I wont be getting any more Toyos.
I have seen some Barum Bravuris in the size I need, but, was wondering if anyone else has used them and what did they think of them ? I can get a set of four fitted for £350 at National Tyres which seems a good price, and I have been told by the guy there ( whom I trust in these matters) that they are made by Uniroyale (who also make Continental - or vice versa) and that they are the same compound and quality as tyres branded as Uniroyale or Continental, just a different name. The economy and wet grip ratings seem to be up there with the best, but, maybe not quite as quiet on the road - that said, anything has got to be quieter than the Toyos !
So, your collective advice would be appreciated !
