Hi, i am looking for some budget replacement tyres for my touareg 2007 which currently have these tyres:

275 45 r 19 108 y continental 4x4 sportcontact


any idea on a good budget replacement to go for? I am based in the UK and most appreciate the forum knowledge!

I have seen these online at National Tyres but never heard of the brand Yokohama

regards viz

Yokohama's are really nice performance tires, but I am not up on their SUV tires. I guess they are not very popular in the UK if you never heard of them.

There are quite a few guys here in SA running 19" Yokohama's on their Tregs. AFAIK they are very good. Quiet and excellent in the wet, but don't expect high mileage.

hi, thanks for the messages. I did not get a chance today to call the tyre fitters but will give them a bell tomorrow to ask them also.

regards

Just to let you know - I ended up getting 4 new continental 4x4 sportcontact tyres instead of the budget ones for 200 quid each from Cardiff. I believe I saved about 80 quid a tyre compared to say getting them from London. They did not have the Yokohama in stock and I needed tyres because of the snow conditions.
