Yeah, I thought the width was the problem with hitting the knuckle and not the profile though. Just letting you know

Just looking around as the beast will shortly be in need of new rubber. I'm amazed at the crazy prices being asked for P7s nowadays. But coming down to a choice of a couple of tyres for around the same price point (deliver only prices):

Pirelli P7 225/60 R18 100W with a rating of F, C, 72dB @ £145
Vredestein Ultrac Cento 225/60 ZR18 104Y XL with a rating of C, C, 67dB @ £142

So should I go for the beefier, but apparently more economical, Vredesteins?

Both are excellent tyres, they are not budget tyres. P7 is chosen as stock tyre for Bentley, low road noise levels, medium compound. Vreddies are better with lower profile range & they also smoke more on burn outs too, slightly softer compound, lower road noise level.

Happily, go with what you feel, both are equally excellent tyres and good for wet weather condition but look at if you desire more direction or asymmetrical. Some say directional pattern slightly better on snow, TBH you can't really have it all on tyres

Here Vreddies, asymmetrical applied to tarmac

Differnce between direction & asymmetrical

One step for man, one giant leap for mankind
