The main benefit of brand tyres are significantly improved braking & cornering grip eg Continental tyre can stop you by a couple of car lengths over a budget tyre particularly in wet weather. Basically comes down more assured peace of mind versus extra pounds in pocket.

yeah in the wet budget tyres are pretty cr-p all round and branded tyres far better

if you dont travel far/fast i would go budget

if ya lewis hamilton type branded probably best

If they were that bad they would ban budget tyres surely?

Sound like product sales brain washing to me :rolleyes:

Have used budget tyres on my Transit at £90 a pair. Absolutely no problems in any weather and the wear on them is fine. All comes down to how you drive, especially if laden with a full tank of water.

iv found that formula one autocentres do the best tyre deals, by a good 20 quid compared to most others .

They're not bad but like virtually every other product you can buy there's a superior version for more money eg waterfed poles!!
