    We replaced our front Michelins (not the Agilas but their predecessors - XCs??) with Conti Vanco Campers. I was immediately struck by how much quieter they were. Not silent by any means, but a damn site quieter than the originals.

    Had our Michelin XC tyres replaced with the Michelin Agilis Camping tyres due to cracking and have noticed they are quieter too. They are rated M+S so they may be better on grass than the old XC's were.

    I used Event-Tyres mobile fitting who came to my house and replaced the tyres on my drive, they were very efficient and professional, took good care of the alloys and used a torque wrench for the final tighening of the wheel bolts.

    I recently had Vanco Camper's fitted at a little under a monkey for 4, fitted balance and valves. Rang round a few places and Kwik Fit beat them all.
