Willy, you aren't suggesting the OP is 'careful with there money' surely not.
I've had a look at the reviews on oponeo and they are using the same reviews on the cheap tyres as for the expensive tyres. In the dry I could get away with budget tyres but in the wet I want something pretty good as some of the roads and roundabouts around me are dangerous in the wet. It looks like I will have to take a chance on tyres as I didn't know the wet rating is for braking. These are the tyres that I'm thinking of buying.
Firestone Roadhawk £60.98.
Hankook KINERGY ECO K425 £65.98.
Pirelli Cinturato P1 Verde £68.26
Used them for 255/45R20 Pirelli and came in at less than half the cost of the local dealer. Total cost including fitting at said dealer!
Camskills or demon tweaks are my usual choice and avoid fitting centres and fit myself...
I can recommend toyo and uniroyal tires
tbh i just fitted two on the front end of one of my cars, they were the cheapest i could get and it is way better than 10 year old worn tyres and i guess much safer too (admittedly the vehicle in question is beyond economic repair if i had to pay anyone to do anything on it but i don't)
For wet weather performance, a quiet comfortable ride and high mileage Michelin every time. Expensive but worth it. Otherwise look at Hankook which are highly rated but midrange priced.
I reckon the OP has it sorted by now, 10 months on!!
