    Time has come round to change the tyres, down to the tread wear indicators and what with the MOT coming up, just thinking of changing brand, What do you lot recommend 225x75x16.
    Thanks.

    look on oponeo, some good prices on there at the moment, especially so if you want winter tyres.

    Hello Ray,
    It might be worthwhile getting a price for Michelin Camper Tyres from Costco as the price includes fitting, balancing and filling with Nitrogen.

    All four? I managed to do two at a time but stuck with Agilis
    I found Costco dear when I last compared.
    Asda tyres came up better fitted.

    Just bought two Michelin Agilis camping tyres(215/70 R15 though) from tyre leader . £112.39 each, delivered to my door. I thought that was pretty good.

    We are running Continental fourseasons 2 in 225 75 16 with 121 load rating, being four seasons tyres they are snowflake/mountain marked if you are going touring Germany etc in the winter months also great grip in muddy fields.

    I would say that with the four seasons pattern and compound on the front the steering feels a touch vague compared to the Agilis camping that I also have and I fully intended to change them over for the summer but have not got spare rims yet, I would also say that the Continentals are a slightly better ride again compared to the Michelin Agilis even though the load rating a is a chunk higher. This is not a criticism of the Continental four seasons tyres more of an observation that would apply to any winter rated tyre. All considered they are are a good all round tyre with a cracking load rating but not cheap. cheap no good good no cheap.

    Try P & B Tyres.

    http://pandbtyres.co.uk/

    I am taking my RV up in a couple of weeks tp have all six changed. 245/70R19.5 £150 per wheel. I think, there are not many on RVOC who would go anywhere else.

    The owner, Brian, who is on Fun and is a Moderator on RVOC. Can, I believe send the tyres to you and arrange local fitment. Top guy. (y)
