    Hi,
    I asked the same question a couple of months ago. I don't think anyone on here had used them. I will be replacing my tyres next spring and would appreciate any feed back on the Pirelli tyres. They do look to be a good price and Pirelli do have a good reputation so I think I will be going for them.
    Glenn.

    Just replaced my Pirelli tyres as the fronts suddenly developed deep sidewall cracks. Wouldn't have them again and replaced them with Michelin Agelis Camper at £103 each. Bought them online through Black Circles and they were fitted at my nominated tyre garage two days later. It all went seamlessly.

    how old was your pirelli tyres before they had cracks in the side walls? at the moment i have Michellin agellis & goodyear tyres on the van & all have cracks in the side wall im not sure what age the tyres are as i only bought the van last september the tread on them looks new but still going to change them anyway

    Jaws has posted a big vote for HANKOOK on here before.
    Worth a look.

    Haddy - The Pirelli tyres had been on the van since it was new in 2009, so they had reached their sell by date, despite having plenty of tread left at 23000 miles. There is a code stamped into the tyre with the manufacture date. If you do a search it should be easy to find the age of your tyres.

    Asda tyres are worth a look at.

    Mud & Snow, much better tread pattern so gives better grip all year round, especially on wet fields, and snow obviously!!
    And if you venture abroad in the winter is acceptable as a winter tyre in most places apart from further north

    I've had two maxxis fitted on the front they seem quite enough when your driving a fair way road noise can be quite an issue
