Talking Need New Tyres

After the MOT and service I was advised that the tread on the tyres was a little low at 4mm

I tend to swap at 3mm. However, the warning gives you a chance to shop around. I paid 162 including fitting etc. for Pirellis last time but when it comes around again I want to look at what Michellin have on offer. I always find they tend to wear better.

If you have 18" wheels, Michelin don't do anything in the 225/60R18 size :-(.

If you are on stock rims you can run 255/55/18 all round this will give you more choices for a tyre, been running this size since the P7's shot up in price some of us are running Hankook Ventus ST RH06 255/55 R18, try Cheap Tyres Discount Tyres Buy Tyres Online & Japanese Import Car Parts Spares Tuning Performance Servicing Accessories for tyres usually cheapest. Been running 255's for a while now no problems with them at all.

A little low....having a laugh (Halford's or National tyres?) 4mm is only half way down from a new tyre!

Legal limit is 1.6mm. I normally change at around 2mm so you still have 50% left

Currently having mine stock alloys fully refurbished and will put some pictures up in next few days for work done by

Alloy wheel refinishing. Proffesional wheel refurbishing and powder coating services Birmingham

I've changed from the P7's to the Nankang AS1's which are a good tyre but less than half the price. Also putting in new pressure sensors (rubber ones) as the original 2006 ones have corroded away !

Hope this helps

4mm should have never been an advisory,we advise when they're between 1.6 and 2mm or if the inner/outer edges are worn,as long as the central 3/4 of the tread is above 1.6mm it's a pass,it's the tread grooves you're suppose to measure not the sipes.I changed my rears a couple of weeks ago,they were down to 2mm but they kept spinning up at the slightest throttle so I changed them.I wouldn't worry about your tyres for a while,they're fine at 4mm

Wouldn't recommend these as:

1. Wrong size
2. Wrong rating should be a W not a H
3. Designed for a SUV /4x4 and not a saloon car. As such the road noise would be intolerable !

Did go to Costco who only do Michelin. They refused to put the Michelin's on for these reasons !
