    What does everyone think is the best year round option for tyres in the UK. Size is 225/55/17.

    I was thinking of Goodyear 4 Seasons which have the M+S mark and the snow flake/mountain mark. It seems to have a decent tread pattern that isn't going to be stumped by a muddy field and will also perform in the winter.

    Thoughts?

    Should you not be running 225/45/17 or are these larger for an Allroad?

    Get best deal you find on known branded tyres with decdent thread pattern and make sure they are XL preferably with rim protection for Allroad.
    What do you have on now?

    Goodyear 4 Seasons look good though.

    The Goodyear Vector 4Season has the snowflake/peak mark though, so it sets it apart from your normal run of the mill all season for winter driving.
