Re: BEST TYRES for SCENIC?

try and avoid Continentals, they give a very smooth ride but the outer tread wears out within 8 - 10k miles.

As will all tyres if the car is out of alignment or the tyres run at the wrong pressure. Dismissing Conti's because this unfortunately happened with you is a bit unfair. I've found Barum Bravuris to be a good compromise between price/performance and wear. 64 fitted/balanced and old tyre disposed of is a decent price....see link.

I ordered 4 new tyres from ebay. only in February, and ask the local garage to chuck them on for me, they also fitted 4 new glow plugs I bought from gsf carparts, nice lads, just bought them a few beers from Tesco.

Hope this helps.

When you do have some money it might be well spent here - get the guys WIM guys to do a geometry check at the same time.

Im running those on my Mondeo and they are a very good tyre, made by continental, no probs with them dry and wet grip is very good wear so far seems very low done 4500miles and they look like new, I have no hesitation in recomending them.
But if you fit new tyres get a four wheel alliingnment check, it will save you money later
