You might still have had the problem even with off road tyres, Ed ! If not, probably would have churned the grass into mud :lol: :lol:EDB4YLI55 said:I don't really drive off road, but with the storms around recently, I parked on some grass and couldn't get off, had to get towed off, a 4x4 towed off some grass.
It's the road tyres i know, has anyone put off road tyres on their Ateca
Yes - maybe a bit harsh, lol :lol:EDB4YLI55 said:mcderms, I would agree, and I think the grass was completely waterlogged and don't worry it was chuffed to mud, I actually saw a freelander being towed by a tractor so maybe I'm being too harsh on my little Ateca but I would agree off-road in drier terrain I'm sure I would excel.
It's was still good for being towed anyway
Thank you lolPhosphoric said:Why, Marks and Spencers of course
Sometimes also mud and snow. They have a different tread pattern and are made of a different rubber compound that perform better in colder weather.
Cheaper version of Winter Tyres but you can run on them all year.
Sometimes called All Seasons.
Compulsory fit in some countries
The ones that Honest John raves about.Kaizer83 said:Storm Doris dumped a load of snow in my neck of the woods. I've got Michelin Cross Climate tyres on my current Leon and I was astonished by how grippy they were in comparison to my previous tyres and whatever half the abandoned cars on the hill where I work were using.
Looked into the price for fitting them to the Ateca 17" when it arrives but £135 a corner so it will have to wait until they are needed.
I would rate them as one of the best tyres I've used both wet and dry.
hahahaha that was brilliant, made my day Mike :lol: :lol: :lol:mike22 said:Check this BMW X6 video and you will love your Ateca
Having traded in a 1 series for the Ateca I think I'd agree with you. From rusty seat bases to a disintegrating rear wiper blade and seats that triggered a back problem I doubt I'd go back.Kindness71 said:I have to say I properly hate all BMWs, and would never ever have one. I always said that if I was given a choice between a BMW and a Robin Reliant, the Reliant would be my choice.
