Insight: Choosing the right tyres

How much does each tyre option cost?

Cold weather and all-season tyres are more expensive than standard fit/summer tyres, although advocates argue the benefits outweigh the additional cost.

The prices below are retail prices supplied by ATS Euromaster in April 2013 and do not include a fleet discount.

We have only included three tyre manufactures (those voted most popular in our last tyre survey) as it was not possible to cover all tyre manufacturers.

Not all tyre manufactures have an all-season tyre. Both Michelin and Continental currently only have summer and cold weather tyres.However, Michelin does have an all-season tyre in its second line brand Kleber range.

It was not possible to get pricing information for the Conti Winter Contact from ATS Euromaster at the time the sample was taken.
