I was looking for some good tyres for Mondeo Mk4 TDCI and was considering Hankook Ventus K125 (good value), or Michelin, Goodyear, Dunlop on Continentals if I could get a good price. 235/45 R17 97 load.

 

Well on Ebay I found TyresOutlet.  I got Continental PremiumContact 6 delivered for £83.40! That was only a few pounds more than the K125 Hankook.

 

I'll update with a review of their service.

 

Has anyone else used them and any feedback.

Tyres Guru are a few pence cheaper (£ 82.94) for this tyre. There is a review of the PC6 here, here, and here ...although the second of those is pretty useless if you read the first (and there are user reviews here ...although how an ordinary user has a worthwhile wear comment this soon after the release of the tyre is a mystery to me).

Tyres-outlet = mytyres.  Although they appear to be trading on dodgy ground.

 

Changed the company name but still using the old delticom tyres or delti.com

company names which they should not be doing.

What's the problem with Mytyres being on dodgy ground. It's always made it clear its part of Delti which is a German listed company on their stock exchange?

They changed their main company name in the UK some time back yet still trading

under the old company name.

 

They should not be using their old name anymore.

 

Previous Names: Date of change Previous Name

20/01/2017     DELTICOM TYRES LIMITED

01/06/2004     DELTI-COM LIMITED

 

 

But they still have both of those company names in use on various forms.

I think they are cheaper but for the lower load tyre.  Mine was a 97Y.  I do get confused with the load rating but I think Mondeo Mk4 are meant to be 97 rated.  I have used 94 in the past without any ill effects.

94 load rating = each tyre can carry 670kg so 4 of them can carry 2680kg

97 load rating = each tyre can carry 730kg so 4 of them can carry 2930kg

 

I dont think any Mondeo has a gross laden weight of more than 2300kg so both tyres 

are overkill.  A load rating of 89 (580kg per tyre) would be enough.

Purple, should we not only be fitting load and speed rating etc as per manufacturers homoligation specification, otherwise insurance is/could be void. I am aware of an ins clm that was refused due to maufacturers spec tyres not being fitted, ie speed rating in the case I know of

Thats a bit cheeky most of the time IMO. My car will do 158mph flat out, the tyre rating is fine for that, but im struggling to think of a tyre with a rating lower than the 70mph speed limit on public roads. Surely a tyre should be illegal to sell if it couldnt do 70mph, ergo all tyres should be legal within the max speed limit and thus insurable for road use.

Coming at this from another angle, does this mean that if I had a lovely Ford GT40 continuation with a top speed of 205mph and crashed at that speed on the motorway the insurance would happily pay out if it had the correct tyres?

I have no idea on tbe above situation, no desire to test the theory :), but am curious.
