Has anyone any recommendations about all weather tyres for a B9 Berlingo please? Time is coming up to change at least two tyres shortly... Huh

Last year I fitted four Michelin CrossClimates to my 2013 XTR and I’m very pleased with them.

Had the original Michelin , rubbish, Avons a bit better, then tried the crossclimates, brilliant tyres.

I've just fitted the Nexens on mine. I've not tested them in real winter weather yet, because well we haven't had any. But they grip well in the wet and dry, without any noticeable noise.

I did have to buy them from my tyres (who are based in Germany I think), because there is a very limited choice of all season tyres held in the UK by the wholesalers. I think I was basically limited to Cross Climates, Goodyears or Avon going by the UK wholesalers, and it seems all of those are fairly poor all rounders and very expensive.

There's not really anything wrong with decent remoulds, even Michelin remould lorry tyres. Hard to find decent remoulds though in car sizes though. The 'Sterling' remoulds ATS used to sell were utter crap.

Those ones also look more like just ordinary summer tyres, rather than all weather tyres.

Colway used to do some good quality and more specialist remoulds (grass track tyres for classic minis for example), I think they went bust though. Perhaps Kingpin have taken up where Colway left off.

I can't imagine there is much of a market for 'normal' remoulds for cars anymore, budget tyres are so cheap these days it hardly seems worth it. More niche stuff like winter tyres in uncommon sizes makes more sense though.

I think the likes of the crap ATS were selling gave remoulds a bad name. I remember having a leasing firm fit one put on a fleet van I had. I took it back a week later, it had a puncture, a bulging side wall, the tread was delaminating and the casing had gone out of true. There wasn't really much more that could have gone wrong with it! They used to go grey after a few weeks too - if they lasted that long.

I had Michelin Cross Climate fitted all round a year ago at 23K miles / 3.5 years and they are very good. The original Michelin Energy were good but the Cross Climate are better. Depends on your driving style, but they suit me.

I’ve done about 900 miles, in the past 6ish weeks, on Goodyear Vector 4 seasons and they’re great.

First time I’ve tried all seasons. Have ran Winters throughout the year (Vredstein Wintrac 4 Xtreme on a Lexus RX & Nokian A3 on a Remapped Passat 2.0TDi 170) in the past, through laziness to not get them swapped back, and they were fine even in the summer.
