Oh dear where do I start . I recently put on 2 front tyres I guess about 4 months ago now . Anyway they are cheap budgets called Linglongs . Has anyone had any experiences with these tyres , are mk3 mondeos better on a certain type make of tyre as the front end of my car feels damned awefull allmost loose !!! Its done 70,000 miles . Feels like a bag of nails to drive especially the steering , garage said theres no play in anything underneath either !!

One thing that you should make sure of is that the
LOAD INDEX RATING is of the correct value.
The figure should be over 90,for the Mk3.
I have heard of Linglong,i would say be carefull
buying most tyre's that are made in the fareast,
the only country in the fareast that has a good
reputation for tyre's is South Korea.
Kumho,Nexen,and i think Marshall all come from there,and are very good tyre's.

To be honest I got ripped off , they charged me £50 each for them ! Then a few weeks later I needed rear ones done my homework and rang around and got decent Avons for £58 each

never EVER buy cheap tyres for a mk3, mk3 goes thru tyres pretty quick as it is conti's that are on originally from factory usually last around 10k but other makes will last longer iwas reccomended pirelli's by a 25 yrs experienced tyre fitting place (not kwikfit but like them) he had a mondeo too and he used p6000's on his and he said he got 23k out of a set which is a lot better than 10k conti's and conti's are around the same price bracket.
