Is it worth upgrading to Michelin Cross Climates for my Skoda Fabia Estate?

I have just take delivery of a new Skoda Fabia Estate 1.0TSI 110SE. It comes fitted with Nexen NBlue tyres. These do not seem to be very well reviewed. Is it worth upgrading to Michelin Cross Climates and trying to sell the others on eBay. They have done 11 miles.

If the Nexens are not well reviewed then you won't get much for them on eBay. But Cross Climates or Continental AllSeason Contacts will significantly improve the car. Try ( and ( for sizes and prices and read our Tyre Buying Guide (
