I have a 2011 Facelift Tekna with 18" and fitted Vredestein Quadrac 5 - they've been on nearly 18 months and all still have just a tad under 7mm on them after 15k.

They have been nothing short of excellent in all weathers - I even towed a builders van off some very sticky muddy ground slightly uphill and didn't use diff lock. They were brilliant in the small amount of snow we had over winter as well.

225/55 x 18 with M&S snowflake and Mountain symbols on the side. Reasonable priced as well.


OOh! Another brand which I recognise. Thanks very much. I'll go looking. On the topic of towing a builder's van out of the goo, you don't suppose it was anything to do with the significant extra torque you have gained from the engine remap?!


NO I don't think so as didn't need that many revs - i felt it was down to the tyres and basically a ***** good 4 wheel drive system :)

Let us know how you get on with them - the tread pattern looks more aggressive than my present road tyres and might do what I need. I wonder what they cost in the UK..?!

This price at the moment is cheap!
I bought them thru my brother's shop without any profit to him and got it for 135€/a corner

The noise class is '2' and the seller quotes 71dB under EU testing. I have absolutely zero idea what that means, subjectively. However, summer only tyres won't do for me. I wish I understood more about tyres!

You must be deaf then - lol

Those are pretty chunky summer tyres - not sure how well they'll do when temps drop below zero in winter. O know my Vredestein Quatrac 5 are really good in mud and on snowy roads - think mine are 70dB noise class
