I'm running 255 45 18 xl 103w and need new tyres soon.
As my T5.1 is a t32 I need to keep this in mind.
So wondered what is your preference as to tyre brand for wear and tear and noise and grip.

Personally love goodyears on most things but the goodyear commercials i ran on the van were noisy as hell.
Conti's have been good on the van but normally raving expensive for what they are .

When I used to run a sprinter and an lt35 for my haulage business I ran continental vanco tyres and always found them good but I guess the low profile ones aren't as good.

Normally use Michelin but size wasn't available so went with Goodyear F1 Asymetric 3 in the size you are looking for. Think they were about £140 a corner from blackcircles or asdatyres.

Like them - nice and quiet and have done 10k+ and reckon i still have 5mm on them all round (van on b14 too).

Currently running with uniroyal rainsport 3s, can't say I've got any complaints about them. Also have them on the car in 19".

Van came with Good Year Eagles but i switched to Kumho. They both seem to last about 10K which i'm not overly impressed with but both grip well

Had a set of cheap ditch finders on when I bought my van, swapped them all to Kumho's and only got about 10K / 1 year from them. Switched to Hankook Ventus before the last MOT (nearly a year ago now) and they're not even half worn yet! Well happy. Grip and low road noise is great.

What’s the mileage on them and predictions!?? Ta

So far I'm just shy of 10K on them - with at least 5-6mm tread still remaining across all 4 tyres! I was nearing the wear limits on the Kumhos after similar mileage on the old set.
