My standard tyre size that I have at the minute are 215/60/R16 and I'm looking for a new set of tyres so I have the following questions (based in the UK);

1) Would there be any trade off in going from 215/60/R16 to 205/65/R16? The tyres seem to be a little cheaper and more readily available.

2) What is a good all season tyre? Currently I have the option of Goodyear Wrangler HP All Weather, Goodyear Vector4seasons and Toyo Open County HT in 215/60/R16, and Pirelli Scorpion STR in 205/65/R16.

The prices are as follows;

Goodyear WHP - £91.20 per tyre
Goodyear V4S - £115
Toyo OCHT - £71.80
Pirelli STR - £92.90

Or maybe 215/65/R16, If they will fit OK. I can get some Nokian WRG2 SUV in this size for £99.

Or Nokian WRD3 in 215/60/R16 but I don't know if this is rated as all season, like the G2.

Just found some Pirelli Scorpion STR in 215/65/R16 for £79, look like a bargain, but are they any good?

The tire thing has been beaten to death (at least for the US market but most tires are marketed in both places with different names), I'm not trying to be rude but reading the tire forum should help. People on here all like the tires they have for what they are doing. Many are even happy with the US stock tire. :headshake

And thus, this thread is no longer needed.

Folks, please don't create multiple threads on the same topic.
