XV tyre recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Hi all - so I took the plunge and am now the proud owner of a 2012 2.0d manual XV - and I have to say that I am very pleased with it! Thinking about winter coming along and whilst I don't want to put winter tyres on specifically, does anyone have recommended tyres that are good all year round, good in the wet and fuel economy etc? Plus any horror stories or brands to stay away from? 

Here's my new toy 😁

And I also found these tyres, has anyone used these on their XV?

I've seen a few members use the cross climates and I've not heard 1 complaint.

was looking at cross climates for 16inch rims but unfortunately they don't do the size I need

Thanks all, looked at cheaper options but these do look the best bet for all year round driving.

I’ve got Cross Climates SUV on my XV, brilliant in a word.

Had both geo’s and Cross Climate +. The latter is a bit softer and less noisy. Haven’t had the chance to test in snow. Geo’s lasted nearly 40K!

 

good luck

I bought my CrossClimate SUV from Costco, good value. They did damage a sensor valve but did not quibble, bought an OEM replacement which they payed for £104, fitted, all good.  I’ve been through last winter but used the CrossClimate tyres on two previous Skoda Yeti, in very deep snow, ice and floods, very comfortable and secure.
