Which mid range all-season tyre?


Recommended Posts

just joined forum having recently acquired a 2005 outback 2.5i, which is currently shod with 3 different brands of summer tyre, two of which will need replacing very soon. Looking at option of replacing all 4 with all season type.

My annual mileage isn't high - 7-8k. trying limit budget to about £65 per corner if poss. 

Have been suggested either Nexen N'Priz 4S or Nangkang N607 at about that price.

Would be most grateful for any feedback on experience with either tyre.

Just purchased some new hoops today ...


Original fit are Yokohama geolandar G900's at around £110 - £130 each


online brings that down to any where between £95 -£150 (lol)


The specs for the Yoka are  215/55/17 94 V   ECB  - Fuel / Wet braking/ Noise -71Db


Interestingly these are classed as a midrange tyre.


Looking at what is currently on the outback it would appear that brand loyalty went southbound some time ago


Fronts are Nexen N 6000's which is a 94 W rating


One rear is a standard Geolandar


The other rear is a Pace PC70 98W


The Nexen's look like they were superseded some time ago, so it was search for an alternative


I narrowed it down to 3


Nexen N'fera  which is a 98W  coded CBC and has an XL sidewall - £51


Khumo Ecsta SPT KU31 which is a 94W  coded CAC but no reinforced sidewall  - £57


Falken Ziex ZE914 which is coded CBB  and has a MFS sidewall  - £64


Given i allready have Nexen's on the front, and they have lasted me 2 years with the milelage i cover


and returned approx 26mpg  and being the the non stiffened sidewall version,


Iv'e gone with the stiffened C rated option.


My next choise whould have been the Khumo's   folowed by the Falkens
