Hi all, first post having been reviewing the forum for a few weeks.
I've run winter tyres on 2 and 4wd cars for the last 10 years and am currently researching options for my GX3h that arrives next week. I usually run Nokian WR-SUV or Vredestein Wintrac Extremes and rate them both highly for grip in water and snow but I'm tempted to take on board jaapv's recommendation of Hankook I-Cept Evo as they appear good value.
Just wondered if any of you went ahead with the excursion to NL for a deal on oem wheels and if not then what you plan to do. I'm more interested in cost savings than aesthetics so will probably opt for 16" and I am tempted to get an alloys and tyre package from Mytyres for under £600 delivered including balance etc. Link here http://www.mytyres.co.uk/cgi-bin/komple ... els_winter
(I was looking at the Dezent RE alloys)
18" option would push up the price to about £950 all in but that still looks better than anything else I could see in the UK
I've bought plenty of tyres from MyTyres but never alloys. Although the range appears limited, they do at least appear to only list those that are actually suitable for the vehicle
this topic should run and run now we're heading into winter so look forward to your replies
