Talking of "that time of year again" I'm really looking forward to the "my car is smoking from under the bonnet" posts. Laughing Laughing

Lots of choice in 20" but I like the Cooper & the Nokian having tried and loved both...(Also tried the Vredestein which also work well but don't look very aggressive)

£153

Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S

Hi Gary,

Where are those prices from? I haven't seen the TS850P for less than £225?

Just checked the other brands and they are all slightly lower now than when posted on 9th October so it must be a good time to buy before Winter price hikes. I am buying a set of the Coopers for my 19" at only £106.09 at Tyreleader.

EDIT Oponeo £103 with free delivery

tyreleader and Camskill are the sites I use to benchmark tyre prices. The independent dealer in Bristol that I've used for nearly 25 years now is usually cheaper anyway though and if not they'll price match.

^ Always seems to make sense to let Google search as sometimes Tyreleader/Camskill/Oponeo may not be the cheapest.

while HKPL 7 SUV is still probably being sold the “top” model is HKPL 9 SUV which should in all respects be an improvement... higher price, more features, etc. not sure if you can get them without studs.

Getting 4 of them fitted on 19” wheels this week Thumbs Up

The one for £204 is a TS830P, it's listed amongst the 850s but it's £20 cheaper Crying or Very sad

It has the mountain snowflake symbol so meets the minimum legal requirements for a winter tyre.

Post edited as comment below now withdrawn - the AT3 has snowflake and sypes and it classed as a winter Tyre. (Thanks J@mes) Thumbs Up

Yes good in fresh snow but not really a winter tyre.
