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.

8yrs, but many years a tugger.
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)
