    If you say what type of vehicle you have, someone with more expertise than me will be able to advise you

    We always buy camping tyres

    Good luck

    Not really an expert, but should they be Michelin Agilis 'Camping' tyres?

    By the way, did the van fail its MOT because of the cracked tyres, or was it 'an advisory' notice?

    It was only an advisory.

    These tyres are Michelins

    On the feedback they have sold part worn tyres so I would make sure if you buy those that they are not new "old stock"

    I replaced my tyres last year with the same tyres as you are looking at and they were a lot more than £100 that looks like a bargain price:thumb:

    I have checked and the purchase would be for new tyres

    Don't know if the listing has changed since you put it up, but it does say old stock and they only seem to have the one which is not a lot of good:Sad:

    One is perfect if you only need one. It said old stock, but it is a new tyre. I contacted them and asked so I purchased it.

    Hello about Tyres my tyres were getting old has they say 5years to 7years to replace but I had gone passed that so Had replace all four and I did cheek around for the best buy ,which are Continental 225,70,15,R eventually got the best prise and it was called TYRE BOOKERS.COM think someone from here put me on to them ,You put your size in and they give you the cheapest prise for that day and if you want them you order them and YOU DO NOT PAY THEM ,YOU PAY AT THE GARAGE WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN FITTED ,and tyre I was a bit worried of when the tyre had been made ,so before them fitted I asked for the date they were made ? MADE 02(means Feb) 2014 brilliant service I got as well and the tyre are B for fuel and B for breaking in wet weather ,good luck .ps sorry it so long :Blush::thumb:

    Don't know if you have been following all the tyre threads on here but it appears tyres are no good when they are so old , you have to go by the date stamped on them, so if they are old stock with say 10 on them they are only good for a couple of years whether worn or not.:Sad:

    In fact I have got a set here now that you would think were new but they have got 06 on them so someone had them changed for new, and they are here waiting for someone with a van to put them on:Doh:
