New boots needed for the RRS

Hi,
Currently running Vredestein Ultrac Vorti 275/40/22's and the tread is running low, plus MOT tomorrow so am expecting them to flag tyre tread.
What are the best options for new boots?
Options I've found are
Dunlop SP QuattroMaxx @ 255€ per corner
Michelin Pilot Sport 45 @ 365€ per corner
Toyo Proxes T1 Sport @ 210€
Vredestein Ultrac Vorti @ 270€
Pirelli P Zero @ 265€
General Grabber GT @ 185€
Goodyear Eagle F1 @ 250€

Many thanks in advance 2014 RRS 3.0 TDV6 HSE Dynamic

I'd get the Pirellis too as the only all-season, pity they don't have the 3PMSF marking though. I don't think there are any 22" all-seasons that do, though you can get the recently available Vredestein Quatrac Pro 275/45 R21 with the marking, which would fit mine. Bit moot, as my tyres are probably good for the next 3 years. RRS MY17 SDV6 AB

Don’t by the Dunlop’s, I had uneven ware on them to the point of having cords showing on the inner edge. Had new tyres and 4 way Hunter alignment thinking the geometry was out. It was spot on and the Toyo Proxes XS I have on now have even ware. I did some researching and found lots of other comments from owners with lots of different cars with the same issue. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

I maybe biased but I tend to fit Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season M+S.

A great all round tyre and the tyre fitted to the Land Rover Experience vehicles.

Thanks folks,
These are purely for the summer, as law dictates the changing of tyres for winter - unless you have the chunkier year round versions. Otherwise its studded from End of October until End of April.
MOT was a doddle although off side mirror indicator bulb needs changing.
Tyres have apparently plenty of tread. So 1000+€ saved for another day.

If that's the indicator in the mirror that will be a expensive bulb, as I think you have to replace the complete indicator lamp part, no separate bulb.

Google LR027945 R/H or LR027946 L/H and see what turns up.

You should check all connections first as LEDs don’t burn out easily unless they are cheap. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

Good place to start. Don't suppose there would be an instruction video or fact sheet on how to do that?

Should the bulb be burnt out: is this a suitable replacement: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Range-Rover-Sport...Sw1~NcbX-V 2014 RRS 3.0 TDV6 HSE Dynamic
