I don’t normally bother, but not changing van for a while so thought I would get a spare set of wheels and tyres for our skiing trips. We normally do a couple a year. So what are the best snow tyres on the market at the moment that you have used?
We have some winter wheels and have bought some tyres called Nankang SL6 , they are Taiwanese and are a mid range (not budget) winter tyre according to our local tyre dealer. They were £80 a tyre when we bought them.
This is why I use Continental, they give good advice, tyre pressures and produce and regularly update this data booklet.Use Vredstein Quadtrac 3 on our 4 x 4 and never had a problem in snow, they are an all season tyre. Vredstein do do a suitable van tyre, Comtrac 3 but my query on tyre pressures with regard to axle loading got a very wooly answer. Thinking of going for Michelin Agilis all season van tyres at the mo but a similar query to them went unanswered!
Good choice. Ours came from UK oponeo. Toyo now £107 each. Nankang £86.I bought x6 Toyo HO9 for £400 from German oponeo site, delivered to german dealer who fitted
Yes, I like the Camper ones I've got but they aren't winter rated of course. Ideally I want an all season tyre to save the faff of changing 6 tyres twice a year and Continental don't appear to do one.This is why I use Continental, they give good advice, tyre pressures and produce and regularly update this data booklet.
Me, wife's car, both daughters and son and we vary from South to Northern Scotland. Most of my neighbours certainly have either winter or all-season like me.I wonder how many in more rural areas like northern Scotland have winter tyres on their cars or everyday transport or just stick with what they have got
The Vancontact Winter, Vanco Winter 2 and the Vancontact 4Season, which we had fitted all meet your criteria don’t they.

Not really heard much of Nankang before, but they seem good quality 3pmsf approved, directional snow tyres with a very high load rating. Had them fitted by a local dealer who rated the brand and said they were easy to balance with few weights needed - a good sign. Will have to see how they perform on our next ski trip to see if it was worth saving the extra £200 for premium tyres.
I needed new tyres. I spoke to Brian, fun name is Brian and Jo. He owns a tyre place in Oswestry but can ship all over. Anyway I wanted impartial advice so after viewing about him here, I rang him and from what he said, I went there and had 5 winter tyres fitted for £390. Very pleased
