Price

Cost is a key factor, but does it pay to go for the cheapest?

You get what you pay for, and that is certainly true with the Wanli tyres. They’re over£10 cheaper than the nearest rivals – buy a full set, and you’d save a massive£140 over four of the most expensive tyres on test.

But the Wanli scored low. For under £70 you could get the Kumho, Fuldaand Maxxis. The low H-speed rating means the Pirelli is in this category, too. Hankook is next, with Goodyear and Dunlop both under £80.

The OptiGrip is good value given its ability in the wet. Vredestein joins premium manufacturersBridgestone, Continental and Michelin, with each tyre at £80-plus.For too many drivers, cost is key, but the overall emphasis in our test is safety – so pricedoesn’t play a major role in our final ranking.
