    Buying 6 tyres this/next week and have been offered Kenda, Dunlop, Michelin, Bridgestone or Firestone.

    Guess which is the most affordable by far...

    (Only ever travel at 80 kph.)

    I had one fitted as an emergency following a blow out on my old van.

    It seemed ok, but I know zilch about tyres (amongst other things).

    had a full set of kenda on an old mk3 transit for no other reason than that's what the lad had in at the time , and don't remember having any issues. I was looking for budget tyres as the van was just a plodder lol.

    I know you can afford the Michelins; but don't buy them mate, the most over rated tyres ever.

    @Jim I have to buy a full set this year and was looking at going to Michelin . So, Jim, you don't rate them?
    Cheers

    Certainly don't, I had Michelin campers on my Hymer and she was terrible, on wet grass she'd slide and spin all over the place. Switched to a van tyre, Avons and they were much better and a fair bit cheaper. Michelins are very hard wearing, but motorhomers need to change their tyres long before the tread is worn.

    Also, the Michelens I've had have been hard rides, with the recommended psi of 80
