Have 4 of them on my Xli saloon atm,only realised how long they've lasted,great hard wearing tyre as I do alot of milage on a dual carriageway with a very poor surface known for eating through tyres.

Not the greatest in the wet,but they've only got bad the last few weeks as they seem to be due for replacement now.

They are a Chinese tyre which says it all really, will be grand if your just going to and from work so long as you dont try and drive like Colin McRea Razz

Had them on a corolla years ago they do seem to last a long time, but as said dodgy in the wet.

"Winrun" china made are acceptable...

I prefer round tyres myself. Very Happy

Interstate or Infinity are decent budget tyres.

But I spend good money on tyres as there are your only contact with the road.

I'll second that Kingstar are decent budget tyre.
Marshal tyres are also good for their price I find.

Have these Silverline tyres at the moment and they are absolutely shocking

there was one on a corolla I bought before and it had a bulge out the side of it.
went to get a new tyre on and the man in the tyre centre said that was the 4th triangle tyre that week that he had changed with bulges in them, that was a Tuesday.
To me, that said a lot about them

had them on an avensis - dangerous yokes never had any confidence in them after a few wobbles - finally changed them after herself did a 180 on a wet roundabout - she never drove the car again confused
