The Vredestein All-Season tyres came out very well in the latest Auto Express test on Winter Tyres - 27th October issue.calum said:Apparently wintrac 4 extremes are on back order until January !! Does anyone have any other suggestions?
I actually went, in the end, for the Nokian WR G2 SUV tyre from "MyTyres.co.uk" - sold as an all-season in the USA and highly recommend by someone on this forum.jaykay said:Would I be able to have the Vredestein 235/55s fitted to the original 17" wheels that currently have the horrid 215/60 Dunlops on?
I got the information from the Nokian Winter Tyres 2011 brochure:-77gazza said:Where did you get the pressure info from John?
I calculated that 0.2 bar is about 3 p.s.i so the X-Trail fronts are 36psi instead of the recommended 33psi when cold.What are the recommended inflation pressures?
Nokian Tyres has test driven the recommended inflation pressures for winter tyres (M+S) for the most common car makes. The recommended pressures may exceed the car manufacturer recommendations, as the winter tyre has a different structure. If there is no recommended inflation pressure for winter tyres, we recommend winter tyres to be inflated 0.2 bar (20 kpa) higher than the summer recommendation. The pressure levels must be inspected by using a calibrated gauge with cold tyres every three (3) weeks.
Yes - great aren't they? :thumbs:whigsvolt said:I have the Nokian Wrg2,s on the X trail and they are quite simply the mutts Nuts.
I would reccommend these tyres any time.
Bought from Mytyres.

Some keen pricing here, too: http://lovetyres.com/tyre/Yokohama-Geolandar-AT-S-G012 :idea:
Good spot Aitch. Should be of help to all those who do a high mileage who have worn out their original 225/55/18 and say they can't get replacements as I see they have some with this spec.
