That's great K.I.S.A, thank you. One more question. Are you running these at the same pressure as the original tyres, as stated on the door pillar. Also would be nice if you could give a update on the tyres once you have had them on for a while.

No problem. This is exactly what forums are for.

I’m having the same pressure as before in these tyres (2,4 bar).

I’ll give you a update in a couple of months.

I have the 17 " wheels fitted with Good Year All season. I think if you start messing with different tyre specs you run the risk of interfering with the TPMS and also the speedo.

Car manufacturers deliberately make their speedos to read between 3% and 5% more than your actual speed. The difference between stock 215/55r17 and 215/60r17 is +3.4% bigger.
After all the maths, the new size tyres will make your speedo now read nearer to your true speed.
I have used a seporate sat nav in my car to check my speed against the cars speedo, and my car with the standard tyres was 28mph when the speedo said 30, and 57mph when the speedo was 60.

Couldn't wait any longer after seeing yours Tim, so got some fitted today. I must say, they look great compared to the stock tyres.215/60/17 Yokohama Geolandar G012 A/T-S 96H  - Page 2 20190710

Really pleased with them. Was originally going to get the Yokohama Geolander Go15, but I think these look better and have great reviews as well.

I ended up fitting the General Grabber AT3, in size 215/60r17. Yes they have the snowflake symbol on them. They are all terrain and have mud and snow on them as well.

If poss would a picture of the car from side on be ok when you are bored Smile

Ah yea thanks, should have read the thread more carefully as thought they were the Geolanders !

This def looks like an option when my current summer & winter sets wear out, Liking the 10mm tread depth.

Still wouldnt mind seeing your car Ndrummond from a few angles Smile

Thank you & Very nice, I have the S, Grey with black roof. A bit exclusive now as they dont this model anymore. They really do suit the car Ndrummond.

I am running the original tyres with a set of Alpin 5's for winter. I recon I have at least a couple of winters wear in them. When they are done I will be looking at these as an all season option. I would be very interested if you could remember to update this winter on the cold weather handling & snow if we get it.

How are you finding the av fuel consumption ? and how do they feel on the road ? Sorry for the questions but like you I am finding this interesting. I was amazed how different the Alpin 5 were on the road & I wanted to keep them on all year but couldnt justify the cost when I had a perfectly good set of summer tyres at home.

Have you a set of mud flaps on ? if you have I would be interested to see how they look from behind.

I have just been driving on town roads really, so haven't got a good idea of MPG, but it will probably have gone down a bit j should think. Here are the mudflaps.215/60/17 Yokohama Geolandar G012 A/T-S 96H  - Page 2 20190717

Thanks I have the flexible ones & they dont look like they sit right, hence the question. Appreciate your time for the photo's thumbl

I will keep an eye on this thread for your handling up dates as my Summer tyres are starting to wear now. I will get to November when I change over to my winters so the Grabbers will be considered for next year.

I would say it's down a few mpg, but it doesn't really bother me as I can live with that as I really like the look of them and they are performing really well.
