Vauxhall Antara Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Syron Everest 1 given 100% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 3000 average miles
I ran these tyres on my BMW . They're are absolutely amazing. I live at the top of an extremely steep hill, so steep that lorries often get stuck driving up in the wet. In the snow it's a no go for all cars and all but the best 4x4's with these tyres on I had no issues driving up the hill whilst covered in snow. They are german made and as such pass all their TUV testing. I'm now running these on my Antara. Instead of dreading snow you will be craving it so you can look smug !

Writing about the Nokian WR SUV 3 given 100% (235-50-19-V)
Driving on mostly country roads for 500 average miles
This is now my 4th type of Winter tyre, on a variety of car. The previous ones, Wintrac 4 Extreme seemed the best available, however on my new Vauxhall Antara, there was none available in that size. I took a chance on these new Nokians, and I can safely say that they surpass even the Vredesteins. I have, in the last week, tried them in the wet, dry, very wet, all kinds of frost and snow. I have never felt such confidence as I have with these. They just seem to grip as though the road surface was dry and frost free. No noticeable noise, despite the tread pattern looking as though it would be noisy. Nokian put out an information sheet, describing these tyres, and I have to say that it doesn't do them justice. Braking cornering accelerating, whatever I ask the car to do, it does, and the 4 pieces of rubber/silica just seemed glued to the road. I am utterly amazed at how good they are. Great work Nokian! The winter is young, but I am looking forward to everything it can throw at me.

We fitted a full set of Avon Ranger Ice Tyres onto a New Vauxhall Antara last winter and we amazed by their capability.

We get snow every year and can get drifts upto several feet in bad winters – The Ranger Ices gave amazing grip in snow upto a foot in depth, coped brilliantly on frozen slush covered road and when on cleared roads they performed perfectly in both dry and wet conditions.

For the first time in the last 10 years we went right through the winter without having to use snow chains – This was only down the capability of the Ranger Ice tyres.

We are so impressed with them we are now buying another set to go on our new Mercedes ML W164.

Got these on my Vauxhall Antara. 4 wheel drive. Only got 15,000 miles on original fit Dunlop Sports. I have done 25,000 on my Vredesteins , just had mot and have got 6MM of tread still. Should get an easy 40,000 miles. These are the best wearing tyres i have ever had in 40 years of driving multiple vehicles. Will definately buy again. Thats if they ever wear out.

Brought these tyres after a lot of research to replace the Hankook tyres fitted on my Vauxhall Antara which were no good in wet weather. I was looking for a tyre that could cope with the varied British weather, wet, dry, ice and snow. The Michelin’s are expensive tyres but you pay for what you get. The Michelin’s handle very well in the wet, much better than the previous tyres. In the dry they are are also good but obviously not as good as a premium summer tyre. There is some road noise but no more than the previous fitted tyres. I have had mo issues with the tyre losing grip on icy roads. Where I was most impressed is in the snow. In mid December last year there was a few inches of snow that fell and I had to take my wife to work which was a good test for the tyres. My Antara has 4 wheel drive that only kicks in if the front wheels start to spin. Once the snow had got into tyre treads the cars grip was exceptional. There were various cars even a 4x4 Audi estate that were stuck going up a steep section of road that is just under a mile in length. I sat at the bottom of the hill until cars coming down had cleared and then just drove up the hill overtaking the stranded cars trying to get up the hill. Not once did I feel the car wheels spin and I believe it was mainly down to the tyres. We have more snow forecast this week and having these tyres certainly gives you more reassurance in bad weather conditions. I have these tyres for 16 months. I do about 10,000 miles a year and after 14 months there was still 8mm if tread depth.

Running my Vauxhall antara on a full set of st68. Covered 8000 miles .still plenty of tread left. For a budget tyre I have found them better than most. I am not a boy racer but I don't drive sedately either. I live in a town full of roundabouts and so front nearside outer edge of tyre takes the brunt of the wear. Very pleased all. Will purchase same again. I have driven in all weathers, including snow. I didn't crash or get stuck so they can't be that bad. I do wonder how some people drive when you read some of the reviews.

Good summer tyre. As soon as temperature drops below around 10 degrees, grip becomes poor. Below 0 degrees, grip is none existant. Have now bought winter tyres as Hankooks are dangerous in cold weather.

I've driven around 8000 miles on these tyres and the wear is rediculous. Performace reasonable, but I won't be buying these again due to the excessive wear.
