They look the business, not that bothered about the fuel rating, it would be the road noise coming into the cabin and how are they for normal day to day road driving in the wet and dry ?

We'll as mentioned earlier, it's no worse than a noisy desk fan put on full blast in the front of the cab....or having your window open halfway at speed.

As for day to day , each grip is farely soft in its sideways movement but the compound was updated by them for the KO2'S so it wears much less.

These have the snow symbol, so good at the moment - I may try an emergency stop tomorrow , see how it does in the wet :Y

I also think they've increased my ground clearance by an inch or so....it's certainly feels more heavy duty & versatile :s_thumbsup

Can't find them in 235/55 r18 ?

Not that I need tyres at the moment, but nice to know what choices I would have !!!

Knowing me, I'd go one step further and try and find them with the white walled side lettering, might go good with my white bodywork :D
