Never skimp on tyres! It’s 4 times 6sq inches that keep you on the road or off it.

Match tyre attributes to your car, driving style, road types and average weather. I've used the same 4Seasons on 2 Audi’s for many years now and they’re most excellent on twisting corners and in wet & snow - in fact all conditions except maybe very hot weather (which doesn’t come round too often in Scotland) 

Happy & safe driving!

Tires

 
 By: Weems@8 : November 6th, 2019-08:23
What if you need new tires for your car? What if you bought tires who made your car driving like new? Precious state of the art Goodyear. Note: I am not an employer of Goodyear, or make an advertorial. Just an enthousiast user. I thought Michelin and Cont...

I had the choi’s to take the Michelins cross climats. The memories of Goodyear made me choose it. I had cars without esp, traction control, and abs. The Goodyears were the answer to a safer drive in the rain. But my current car is even grippy with worn ou...  

I consider how I use my cars when choosing tires.

My wife's Jeep is the car we use the most since it's always at the end of our driveway, it's just easier, so it's driven virtually every day by each of us. So that car gets the same type tires that were on it when new. If they were good enough for the man...  

just like my brother

He drive mostly classic cars. He have no clue about tires, so he drive with worn out stuff and complain when a car had test negative and must be repaired. He drove with an almost flat tire with his kids at the backseat. Recent the spheres exploded, and he... 

There's no valid reason to drive on worn or old tires, even if they look new. It's not worth risking your life, or your passengers, or the lives of others around you.

Mine are replaced when the're seven to ten years old regardless of how they look. I've always driven vintage cars but they've always been well maintained. Hopefully you can convince your brother to be more concerned about the potential dangers of improper...  

pain to see your 356 hurt

I hope your 356 repaired. I met a Porsche at the ring, and after the drive i was sold. On my wishlist a Porsche 911 Carrera RWD with PDK. The GT3 of the ringtaxi is a proper track car, so driving on a highway is like a horse in prison. The baby needs spee...

Technical knowledge is necsesarry to own and use classic cars.

Replacements are no so easy if tires are discontinued!

For example my Lotus M100 came with special Goodyear tires made specially for Lotus and matched to its suspension, in a particular, uncommon size. But only 300 cars were sold in North America so Goodyear stopped making the tires. Now after going through 3...  

Michelin is king for me. Never skimp on tires!!

 
 By: everso : November 6th, 2019-14:06
I agree that Goodyear are decent and so are Continental and Pirelli even but Michelin, for me has been by far the best on track and on the street for summer and winter tires.

I've been using Continental Extreme Contact DWS tires on my '08 Honda Civic . . .

. . . for several years, which both perform and wear well. Usually, performance and longevity are mutually exclusive qualities, but not so with Conti's DWS ( d ry w et snow ) design. Best, Art

almost 5 years under my car

 
 By: Weems@8 : November 7th, 2019-14:14
The replaced tires where almost 5 years old. Used 124000 km. original from the fabric of Honda in Swindon UK Michelin (2014) And when i seen the tires, there was no slik surface. So i have good experiences with Michelin.

Of course they do

Just as some watch manufacturers recommend overhaul every 4 years. But 6 years is unreasonable on cars doing 100-1000 miles a year and kept in a garage. Keeping the pressure right in spec is more important than people think; also gentle driving and regula...

That is a pinny guest. Cars are vehicle’s made for..... use as much as possible. Rest is rust, so take on the wheel and go. For cars who stay more in the garage than others, take a charger to keep the battery fit. Past year i had an empty battery, cause o...
