problem I have run into is no one is making 165/60/15 winter tyres to fit the active/allure/feline oem wheels

you need to go up one section to 165/65/15 which should be ok on the road except the speedo will be about 2.5% out ( so prob read spot on..!)

you can always go up in size with the width and height of tire, even going up or down in diameter might be good for a long term approach.

i know that if you run winter tires in conditions that are too warm for it, it can cause it to wear out faster... apparently.

that is quite a lot, at least through your experience they have held up well. do they give off a lot of noise or are they more along the lines of a quiter winter tire?

no complaints with the Goodyear Ultra Grip 8, my 107 is a 2-tronic with paddles and I have had new front disks and pad and tires are still like new


Stunning tyres, I find them better in the summer than the [email protected] oem conti eco's , not noticeable nosier and poss 2mpg worse.

Dropped my 165/65/15's to Peugeot this morn to have fitted to my 108top thats on its way to the dealer :-)

Put it this way I passed a freelander last year in the deep snow that was stuck and can always get out of muddy carparks :-)

I thought our little cars might perform OK in the snow and ice. Do you think we should all look at winter tyres or do you live somewhere particularly snowy?

I have a 7am commute from **** with a road the never gets gritted.

Have passed several stuck 'soft roaders' in my current 107 with Goodyear Ultragrip 8's and driven out of mud that has defeated my mates freelander.

I grew up with winter tyres and would not be with out them.

The awful conti eco crap the factory fit are not the best dry/wet/winter as they are designed for minimum rolling resistance to get you free tax via lower emissions

Picking up my 108 at 3 today , winter tyres fitted, and bobble hat ready to i can have the roof open
