In my search for Winter tyres the prices seem to be going up daily, That is for a make I have heared of. Given I will use these for an upcoming trip to France and then hardly use the car over winter whats people thoughts on a part worn set for my spare orginal alloys? The alloys will take 225/55/16 and I've seen these. One central puncture repair 4X *WINTER* 225 55 R 16 VREDESTEIN 22555R16 225/55/R16 2255516 225 55 16 G20-21 | eBay or these (or basically lots similar) WINTER TYRES X4 225 55 16 CONTINENTAL SET | eBay I already have the standard wheels that the car came with so for the holiday trip and just leaving on over winter whats the verdict? I appreciate that they are not new, but 4.5mm / 5mm still pleanty of life? and if you bought a second hand car you would have no idea how many punctures etc. Given the time of year I will be using these and the nature of what they going to be used for I thought not a bad idea.. Yes / No ? / why?
