    I had the same problem, all four needed to be swapped and had quotes of over 1k.

    I got these and they have been good, very quiet and i have never had a problem with grip in the wet or dry - and every now and again i like to throw it round bends..

    This morning in the now had no real problems with them, never got stuck.

    I have about 6mm left on them now

    thanks stevehall.If youve got 255/19/35 tyres then a grand isnt that hard to reach on the tyre sheds such as kwikfit/ats and the other jokers.Ive always used an independant in coventry, brittania tyres, but camskil look really good

    Good to hear they are ok in the wet & snow.

    Now all i need to know is what sort of mileage they are lasting for?

    For 2/3's of the price of other premium brands are you only getting 2/3's of the mileage, eg contis 15k miles = £150 per tyre, Vredestein's 10k mlies for £100 per tyre???

    My 235/45R17 97Y GoodYear F1 ASYMMETRIC XL which I got fitted a week ago were £119 each including fitting from event-tyres.co.uk - I've used them a number of times and always found their fitting service at home or work really useful. I got a discount for 4, the price for an individual tyre is £125.13

    I did not note down my mileage when i had them fitted, and i am gutted that i did not do it.

    But i can have a guess at mileage, i do about 40k a year, and got them in august? so had them 4 months, so i guess it will be about 13-15k they have done, and from my service i have 5mm left.

    £153 a tyre for 18inch, not much cheaper than other mobile services out there to be honest. It will only cost me £9 a tyre to fit, so £133 a tyre and only a 5min drive to get fitted...£40 saving on two tyres...
