Has anyone ever used Fulda tyres on their Escort? I was thinking of ECOCONTROL or CARAT PROGRESSO as these seem good for the money. 185/60 14, is T or H standard on the I.6 estates?

Have something to contribute?

Never heard of them.

I go by the rule of buy the best you can afford. I usually go for Toyo Proxes TR-1's or similar. Great grip and they dont last too bad either.

I think they must be more well known in Germany and Poland as they are made in Germany.
I fitted a couple of the these on the back. I didn't go with the Eco tyres as I thought if I get caught out with early snow(before I can fit my snow tyres) then they won't grip at all, whereas the CARAT PROGRESSO have a more open tread and so will give better grip in this situation. On the first day of proper snow here there's lots of accidents because some people don't put their snow tyres on until it snows.
Garages that I asked here seemed to rate them as a good average grip and price tyre better than others around this price. As it's an old 1.6 estate(#) I think these are good enough.
I forgot to mention that I'm replacing some very old P6000s so there's not much that could be worse.
