I got my X5 a few months ago, which is currently shod with 3 Accelera Iota's and a Nexen Roadian ( due to a recent puncture). I would appreciate your opinions on a what tyres to use without spending a fortune! I don't go off road, so road tyres are what I am talking about, and I don't do huge mileages these days, and being retired, I have to watch the pennies a bit, so I wont be fitting top of the range tyres such as Michelin, Continental etc, I just want to get some tyres that are a sensible cost, and will perform well even if they don't last as long as the best tyres. I have heard mixed reports on the Accelara's , but so far I have no particular niggles with them, and replacements are not too badly priced, it is a shame that a few weeks ago, I had the misfortune to pop a sidewall on a flint whilst on holiday in Cornwall, and unfortunately the only sensibly priced replacement I could get was a Nexen Roadian. so I am looking around to see what the best option would be when the others get worn down, as replacements. On previous cars I have used Khumos, which I was pleased with - apart from the wear rate, which could have been better! I know Michelins wear well, but at £280 odd each for the rear tyres - I wont be fitting them, unless I come up on the lottery!!
