    Just had Vredesteins fitted on mine. Too early to test them though, not really had any adverse weather conditions yet. Maybe someone thats used them last year will comment soon! Heard good things about Nokian too.

    I've just ordered some Nokians based on another thread here. Have previously used Toyo Snowprox which were fine.

    I've been using Nokian Tyres for about 9 years now, albeit not winter tyres, but have found them very reliable and stable even in the snow we had in the begining of the year, and very good all-round tyre that give good mileage!

    Can't comment on the others I'm afraid.

    Looks like you can't go wrong with the Vredesteins or Nokians

    yes my rears for summer are 245 and front are 225. i bought a spare set of alloys, and just decided to go all round 225 tyres. they alloys are still staggered, but just not the tyres....hope that makes sense!!
