Yes that works fine, thanks Peter. I examined my tyres this morning and I've got 3.5-4mm tread all round so I think they'll be up for renewal on my return from the September Stroll.

I have hardly done any miles since lockdown, my tyres are getting a bit thin so I might replace them if we manage to get to Scotland this year.

I'm hoping for great things for those tyres, the red car has 'Mowhawk' on the front and is noticeably quieter and smoother riding than the silver one, unfortunately they don't seem to make them any more.

One of my favourite online tyre sites is https://www.valuetyres.co.uk/ For the C5 I've been using either Nexen or Hankook. I pay by Paypal and the tyres are delivered to my local tyre shop in a couple of days time and fitted by appointment. Currently they're doing Nexen for £90 and Handkook for £106 - fitted, with new valve and balance.

I have used Nexen on the 406 and they are quite soft and quiet. I will have a look at your tyre list.

All the tyres I have bought for a few years have been from camskill. Mostly uniroyal rain expert, but for the departed c1 I opted for toyos. They were on a special and were something like 130 quid for 4, and a local guy fits and balances them for a tenner a corner. The leon is approaching new front tyre time, but it will be getting used uniroyals. These are two 17" tyres that I bought new about 3 years ago and were on aftermarket alloys on the xantia. They havent got hardly wear on them as they were on the back so I shall get the good of them before they are too old.
