So whats wrong with Accelera tyres then in peoples view?

I found myself being a tyre snob opver the last week or so.....but.......

whats everyones beef with the Accelera then? £73 a tyre......seems you get what you pay for, and a C for Wet....is it that bad for a 4x4?

The EU tyre ratings are essentially useless - they aren’t tested and are certified only by the manufacturer, and cheap tyres are generally cheap for a reason.

I've got them on my SC sadly as the previous owner put them on. They are Censored and about £72.99 too much per tyre.

Really not suited for a luxury vehicle and rubbish grip. I left them on as it was summer, and they were brand new. But they've been worn by about 2mm and they are getting scarily bad now.

Booked my car in for 4xPirelli please...

I had them on the back of my D3, and the DSC would kick in on just about every roundabout, as the back end tried to overtake the front

They were swiftly binned

There's a whole thread here

You may get away with them in southern Spain, but I wouldn't want to spend a Scottish winter with them, especially if you have an enthusiastic driving style Whistle

Why you would risk your life and your family / friends with dangerous tyres is beyond me to be honest !!
They are cheap for a reason, they are rubbish ! Just my 2p worth (sorry for the rant) .

Best wishes,

Cozzy.

I guess that video shows that if you want to drive like a divvy then get the most expensive tyre possible. I use Nexens (for 7 years +) and they are far superior to Maxiis which didn't want to go round corners in the wet.
No doubt the usual commentators will be spluttering and penning a reply😉 Previous cars:

I'm a certified tyre snob & would not have them as a gift.

All the ABS/TC/WHY electronic trickery in the world is a waste of time if the tyre grip is poor.

Why would anyone risk the wellbeing of themselves, their passengers & other road users to save a few pennies. RR's are not cheap to run anyway & if you cannon afford decent tyres then you cannot afford to run a RR.

The only contact you have with terra-firma is around the same contact area as a couple of pairs of smallish flipflops. 2003 Range Rover Vogue TD6

Decent tyres are a non negotiable for me and would be no matter how much the car cost and I think that every time I'm driving down the motorway in heavy rain looking at how much a tyre has to do. Even leaving to one side them making the car feel nicer to drive, you never know when you will need their extra performance, so not worth the saving in my opinion. MY19 SDV8 Autobiography
