Hi members, just discovered that I need some new tyres quite soon.
The existing ones are Michelin 215/70R 15C tubeless, they say XC camping on the tyre wall.
Not sure whether I should replace with like, or if there are some that are much better?
Any help/ advice, much appreciated.
Thanks H. wave

Like for like they will cost around £120 each. Other makes ofv camping tyres are available but you could use commercial 8 ply tyres which will be cheaper. Camping tyres are mud & snow tyres, so bear that in mind as well.

Hi there,

According to my local Dealer, Michelin have an offer on whereby suitable motorhome tyres for "Petal" (replacing Continental Vanco 2 tyres) are at £110.95 each with a fuel voucher worth £30 if I buy four of them.

It may therefore be very worth your while to phone around some of your local dealers to see what is on offer.

Hope this helps.  allthumbz

Best regards,

Hi ,Unless you are a high mileage user,and not many are,I would only get commercial tyres at a lower price. You mat be throwing them away after 5 years .

Thanks for the info, do mud and snow tyres mean that fuel economy is less?
Will look up 8ply and see if I understand the difference.
Many thanks Heidi.

Sorry I am rubbish at IT!!!  Just posted a reply and realised I had more replies.
Thanks so very much, it's all a bit of a minefield when it;s new.
Will ring local garages and see what's on offer and look at 8ply.  
Will check up on frederic's suggestion too, with Hanook link.
Much appreciated, will let you know what happens.
Heidi. up!

I get good  mileage with mud and snow tyres, mine  are Kieber winter ( m&s ) bought from Germany £70 each next day delivery. paid local tyre fitter £10 each to fit including valves , in spite what some have said I am using all the year round and found them excellent, no slipping on wet grass, and good in the dry also, these were the original tyres that were on my van when new, so I stayed with the same.
Hope this helps to make up your mind.
