My s type will get its service in late May and the MOT at the same time.

 

It wil also get some new tyres on at the time.  I am going to fit Goodyear Eagle Assimetrico XL which at the moment are £148 a corner.  Research says that they are a better tyre that Pirelli P Zero assimetrico.

Hi Gary,

 

I came across Nexen when I was looking at tyres.  They are classed as  a Budget tyre, although they have the correct criteria for a powerful car.  In a survey they were rated a 70% on those tyres suitable for a saloon, with a note that they do not perform that well in the dry and are a bit low in the comfort rating. They appear to be very good in the wet, though.

 

Personally I would not use a Budget tyre on a performance car,  as tyres are the only thing between you and the road.

 

The two best tyres that came out top and second were Goodyear [which is very high in all factors  -- look at Halfords site which gives all the details]  and Vredesetein.

 

From all accounts Nexen are not a bad tyre, but you have to ask your self if you are going to put a cheapish tyre on a quality car.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

I have Pirellis on at the moment but they do not score as well on the scale that you can get on several tyre sites.

 

While I have found the P Zero assimetrico quite good they only come 7th out of 10 , with Goodyear Eagle Assimetrico coming top and Vredestein above Pirelli. 

 

Goodyear Eagle assimetrico score a C on rolling resistance affecting fuel economy --- Pirelli [as above ]  scored an F

GY scored an A on wet grip --  Pirelli still good with a B

 

Sound wave GY two bars [70 decibels which meets future EU limits - P  gets 3 bars 73 db  3 over the future EU limit.  This also affects exterior noise.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.
