The last thing tyres. Recommendations please.


Recommended Posts

I Have 3 woosung & 2 dark horse tyres fitted (not by me) made to the highest standard that Korea can offer 17 years ago. tho lots of tread and only light cracking of side walls will probably disintegrate  at speed and not going to risk even driving the 200 yards to the mot. Only do low mileage a year and too old to drive like a maniac but looking for something grippy and not made of plastic or have an unpronounceable name 195/60/14 looking at about £300 for five.going for a mot within 2 weeks I hope gave her some spit and polish...dam she looks good.IMG_20180714_121829.thumb.jpg.ea0db937968b940f337e22b87ec1c408.jpgIMG_20180714_121822.thumb.jpg.28305864ab865bdea8bd55ca9f21d176.jpg

Over a time period of 15 years, I used a few sets of Korean made Kumho tyres, on my daily workhorse estate cars.

Found them to be good all rounders for the money and Kumho seem to be a respected brand, with good review ratings.

For your smaller size of 195/60/14. Does look like your get a set of 5, within your budget of £300...….
