Budget tyres ...Help....- any recomendations

Hi

So I'm going to oversize them , I have 20 inch rims. and will be road use only

265/50R20 bring up some really cheap options.

now the fuel and wet grip ratings on some are up in the B and C category. but Im not sure if that is a reliable measure.

so, who has got first hand experience of running on cheap, or affordable tyres.

I mean the range is huge,,,from budget starting at £80 up to £400 per tyre if you want.

Look forward to hearing from you.

2008 Range Rover Sport TDV8 HSE Java Black

Just got 36k from a set of Toyo proxes STs, superb tyre and the car handled brilliantly in the wet and dry, new set of 4 just gone on. At £160 a corner for 22s these were a really good price, the car is 3 tonnes and tyres keep you on the road - and stop you if you hit the brakes! Sure you can buy cheap stuff but there is a reason the premium brands have an E or F rating for wear and grip....! TDV8 Java Black, Overfinch 22s

Don't go too much on the EU tyre label ratings. You can get cheap tyres that will give A or B fuel ratings, but when these tyres are tested against more expensive ones, they are found lacking everywhere else.

Buy the best you can afford.

The tyre size you mentioned is odd and not one that is usually seen on an RRS. Why did you choose that size? 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

Ignore the ratings on budget tyres,the Chinese just stick anything on them.I always put decent tyres on but not the top end as most the time your just paying for the name,,go for something like Toyos,Kumho,GT Radial or General grabbers,when I bought my SC it wanted 4 new tyres so I told dealer just to knock £800 of price as that what it would cost for 4x contis,,when I picked it up I drove from dealers to my garage & put 4x general grabbers on it & saved myself £300.

Glad you didn’t go for complete rubbish. I did about 18 months ago and they lasted for about 11k miles. They really were a very false economy.

England 2012 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Autobiography Fuji White

I’ve had Dunlop SP sport 8000 on the M3GT and it destroyed them. I then put Hankooks on it and they were better. Since then I’ve used Bridgestone, Toyo, pirrelli and Hankook and the Hankooks were an all rounder, the worst were pirrelli, good grip but wore out in 1/2 the mileage. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

They do fill the wheel arches' well Thumbs Up
Just be mindful that you have increased the rolling circumference as the profile ratio has gone up from 40 to 50 and your speedo will possibly now be under reading (i.e. you will be travelling faster than the speedo reading). It may be worth running the speedo next to a sat-nav to check it's accuracy. I understand that with an IID tool you can re-calibrate the speedo when changing tyre sizes if it's too far out.
