Tyre Test Results - RogerL
The cost of tyres is now the third highest element of car ownership, after depreciation and fuel. This is because service intervals have increased and wearing parts last much longer, while tyres wear out quicker because of "better" rubber compounds, tread patterns and suspension design.

What we need is published comparative data for tyre road tests so that we can choose which tyres for our cars. It's easy to find performance, price, economy comparisons for cars themselves, but not for the tyres.

Which? magazine do these reports about annually. Local libraires normally have copies/backissues.

Go to tyres-online. There are comparative tests lifted from UK and Euro magazines. Should be enough there to help you choose.

Is it really true that manufacturing costs of a R17 tyre is several times that of R13 - or is it just the case that people who drive larger-footed cars are simply more willing/able to accept higher tyre prices?
