- what tyres ……T5
Of those that are in stock, I’ve used a few in the past, the Avon ZZ3’s are pretty good and the cheapest I could recommend (everything below that is Chinese plastic). You’ll need XL load rating though I’m pretty certain for a van, so be aware before buying (some aren’t, though a lot on that list are XL). Up from the Avon’s the Falken’s are a very good tyre, and the Vredesteins, beyond that you’re into premium tyre money.
The Nexen’s and Nankangs may be cheap, but they’re cheap for a reason!Posted 5 years agowrightysonMember
Avoid event tyres at all costs. Had them on my van and actually got them swapped for free after two weeks as they were dangerous in the wet! Clue was in the name as every pissing drive had an “event”Posted 5 years ago
Vredestein sessantas are awesome btw. Had them on the scoob and now put 225/45/18 xl on the Mazda. Three wheel grip in the scoob 😉
I have 235/50/18 Falken ZE912 on my Sportlines. Grip and noise are good but they only do around 20k miles before needing replacement. They used to be very cheap for what they are but creeping up, £105 a corner last time, might look for something different next time but it’s pretty difficult getting good 101 load rated tyres in big sizes.Posted 5 years ago
The Ovation Vi 388 that were fitted when we bought the van have lasted 18 mths and 12k ! Average grip and noisy and thats with steady driving . I saw the BF all terrains on the T5 forum . I’ll read up on the other recommendations and yup need xl ratting with a camper .Posted 5 years agoBlazin-saddlesMember
Think I’d go Michelin for my next set and take the financial hit to try and get more mileage. Just looking at cam skill tyres, you can’t get Conti Vanco in 18″.
Problem being most 18″ tyres are heavy duty car tyres not van specific so they trade longevity for grip, you don’t really need the extra grip on a van but because the van is heavy they wear pretty quickly.
I reckon I’ve done well to get 18-20k to a set, weirdly mine goes through rears quicker than fronts even with 180bhp on tap!Posted 5 years ago
