They have M+S, but not the snowflake and the triple mountain. No substitute for proper winter tyres.

My 2014 T-31 Tekna is fitted with 18" wheels. The tyre size is therefore 225/55 R18. Some months ago, my wife became stuck in a muddy car park (very embarrassing) as the road-biassed tyre treads of course simply filled with sticky mud and resembled slick doughnuts more than tyres! Also, the local council has a policy of repairing potholes with PlayDough, which lasts for ...ooh, 2 weeks, maybe? Even on the X-Trail, some of the pot holes are quite jarring when you drive across them by mistake. I am fed up replacing springs and tyres in my BMW M-3, and all my claims for reimbursement have been roundly rejected. But that's another story.

I determined to replace the current worn road tyres with A/T units, believing they may have slightly stronger sidewalls and certainly a more open tread pattern to save my wife's blushes - or even mine!

I appreciate than 18" wheels do not offer much scope for A/T variety, and I have found Yokohama Geolandar tyres and Kumho eco Solus KL21 tyres on the Net. Does anyone have experience of either of these, or have alternatives I might try to unearth?

My Vredestein do have the snowflake and triple mountain on them.

Best tyre I have had for many years was on my Saab 9-3 Aero Estate. they were 225/45 x 18 Nokian WRD4 winter tyres that were incredible in the summer but come the snow wow - how fantastic. Shame they didn't do the higher aspect ratio for my X Trail :(

Thanks, Barry. I might just do that, although Tunbridge Wells is a loooooong way from Scarborough - which I am guessing is near to Lewis?

Thanks again! Unfortunately the particular tyres you found for me at Demon Tweaks don't come in 18" size - although they may have other A/T options. I'll enquire...

They are available in 235/60R 18. Great tyres as well. They're what I have fitted.

Ok! I’ll include them on my list. I will have to check that the listed size of width and height fits my wheels ok. Thank you very much :-)
