Ds5 tyre choice

Post by Neilied »

As the title says, what’s preference? Car purchased with p zero Nero but finding a bit of road noise and poor wet grip.

Apart from one Uniroyal and 3 Contis, all my nearly half million miles in Citroens has been on Michelin

I'm running Michelin CrossClimate+. only had them for a year and had no extreme weather to test them on.
The used car came had a mixture of summer tyres from two different brands, and the reviews on the CrossClimate Michelins looked good.
No complaints yet, but I've not done much distance on them.

Might I suggest you AVOID Hankook tyres! I have to have them on the van (as this is what the leasing company specify), and they are useless in slippery conditions.

I've used these on my C5 X7 and found them to be great tyres if you are going for a premium brand. They worked well in all weathers and the ice and snow included. I always keep the Michelin 'Easy Grips' in the boot though just in case, as these will get me up a 1:10 Welsh hill in compacted snow and ice without incident.
