KIA Proceed 1.6 diesel 113 BHP 2008 :-
4 x Barum Bravauris 2 tyres (225/45 x 17 91W) purchased via Tyreshopper and fitted at National Tyres £307
These tyres have performed just as well as the original Michelin Primacy ones fitted .... they have given better mpg (albeit by only 1 mpg !) ....worn out at earlier mileage but better value for money considering purchase cost of each (ran both sets down to 2mm limit)... and less worry over getting a puncture and less time running on lower tread in the wet.
This car has blown out smoke on nearly every start up from 2 year old ! but it has 'never missed a beat' in the 6½ years I have had it except for a problem I had with it 'stuttering/cutting out' one time when it needed a new fuel filter ... that cured it ...I would suggest to all owners to get the fuel filter replaced EVERY year ...not just at 2 yearly intervals as in the service schedule.
