Read about Allen Ford in that thread... why do companies try sidestepping the SoGA?
Just bought 4 205/55 R16 91H Nokian WR-A3 winter tyres for the princely sum of... £192 - delivered. All fitted for £32 down the local tyre shop.
Finnish tyre brand, lots of raving reviews and videos, especially the dry/wet grip. I was definately kind of won over! (Ignore the first review... seems to be a bit outlying)
I'm not sure if i'm allowed to post the company website here, so PM me for the address (Or if i'm allowed to post it i'll do so).
