Van Summer Touring Tyres Tyre Review Highlights

Dunlop Econodrive rated 34% while driving a Mercedes Benz
Driving on a combination of roads for 7000 spirited miles
I've had these tyres on two Vito Tourers.
They only last 7000 to 8000 kms. Chunks of rubber start to come off and the noise levels just become insane.
I do not recommend these tyres for the Vito Tourer.
Weirdly enough ~ although the vans are RWD, the front tyres get worn out before the rear ones.

Falken Linam VAN01 rated 31% while driving a Peugeot Expert
Driving on mostly town for 21000 average miles
I replaced my worn front tyres with these at the advice of the garage. My van previously had Michelin Agilis 51 that had covered aprox 35k miles.

Unfortunately I cannot recommend these tyres. They were on in the dry, but as soon as it rained these had no grip and it was difficult to put traction down when coming out of junctions. I also did not feel confident in their stopping ability, especially in the wet.

After only 21k miles they had worn down to 3mm. As my rear Agilis had now worn to 2mm (at 55k I’ll add) I decided to change all 4 tyres at the same time. When I ran the numbers I calculated the cost per 1k mile was actually higher with the Falkin than the previous tyres, and with a dramatic decrease in ability.

I would strongly recommend someone to look elsewhere for tyres. There price now means they aren’t even so ‘midrange’ as they use to be, getting close to the cost of premier tyres.

Falken Linam VAN01 rated 88% while driving a Vauxhall Vivaro
Driving on mostly country roads for 100 spirited miles
Confidence inspiring tyres.
Covered over 100 miles on them in mostly wet conditions.
The old tyres with approx 3mm tread were always spinning on roundabouts when accelerating from stationary.
Conversely these tyres are sticking to the roads well, I have had only 1 small spin on the left tyre. Considering the state of the road surface and my acceleration, this is acceptable.
Compared with other vans, I have found the Vivaro to be quick to spin front tyres and sometimes under steer.
Therefore it is good to have tyres which are grippy and responsive for a reasonable price.
Can’t comment on road noise/mpg - it’s a van so it is noisy and seems to average 33mpg whatever.
I would definitely buy this tyre again.

Nexen Roadian CT8 rated 63% while driving a Peugeot Boxer
Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 average miles
Cargo tire with great wear and good dry handling. Unfortunately they are terrible in the wet and the wet characteristics get worse every year as the tire ages. Cornering in the wet is especially bad and feels like a 20 year old tire was fitted. Also very sensitive to temperature, as dry grip decreases significantly if the temps are

Pirelli Chrono Serie 2 rated 44% while driving a Rover Range Rover Autobiography
Driving on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
In my experience; Pirelli on my ‘kickass’ autobiography VERY POOR. SPLIT EASILY. FLINT CUTS WITH EASE DOWN TO FABRIC ON EVERYDAY ROADS. LAST ALMOST 3500 miles. Yes 3,500!
An incredibly poor tyre with a very short useful life. On my 3rd set in 28,000 miles. And NO. I AM NOT A BOY RACER. JUST A GRANDDAD GETTING THE FAMILY AROUND ON OUR NORMAL RANGE OF GOOD ROADS. NO OFF ROAD CHALLENGES. JUST FAMILY TRIPS.

Dunlop Econodrive rated 70% while driving a Mercedes Benz Vito
Driving on a combination of roads for 38000 spirited miles
New Vito 160bhp, auto, rear wheel drive, 5 seater, with Dunlop EconoVan tyres. The vehicle is used for pleasure only so no heavy loads. Still using tyres at 38000 miles. Front tyres are still Ok but rear tyres are worn out more than the front ones obviously. On dry roads tyres behave as expected except the noise.
When wet conditions, entering roundabouts can be dangerous at times as the tyre is worn they slide a lot and I mean a lot. From new, I could make the rear slide a bit a I had to work the hard to make that happen. Noisy tyres from beginning. When worn out it gets even more noisier and very hard rubber, hence they last that many miles. For the price £150 per tyre /value/miles they are pretty good choice as other major brands cost approximately £200 and last around half the miles which is nothing in comparison. Would I buy them again? Yes I would

Kumho PorTran KC53 rated 84% while driving a
Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 average miles
I had 3 of these fitted to our caravan (2 road wheels, 1 spare wheel) in Feb 2016. As the weight is spread over 2 wheels, instead of 4 in a car, reinforced van tyres are now almost always required for caravans or heavy trailers (Load index 102/100 8-ply in this case; normally run at 60psi pressure). With a manufacture date code of 4215, these tyres are now over 7 years old, and are well due for changing, despite only covering about 2000 miles per year on average. They have shown virtually no signs of tread wear, and no cracking in the sidewalls or tread, but age deterioration internally is of course not visible. I've been very happy with these tyres to date, and plan to replace them soon with the exact same brand and type.

Hankook Vantra LT rated 80% while driving a Ford Transit Custom
Driving on a combination of roads for 22000 average miles
Compared to Continental Vanco 2 I can say that these tyres feel much softer with better feeling and more comfortable with less noise. Possibly a bit less fuel consumption as well. Very good grip and nice to drive in the dry, also fine on gravel. Average grip on wet tarmac but, importantly, still giving good feedback. Seems like they wear somewhat more than the super-durable Contis, but for me, driving maybe 20000 km a year, better comfort and handling are well worth it. Also they cost less.

Continental ContiVanContact 200 rated 59% while driving a Renault kangoo
Driving on mostly country roads for 25000 easy going miles
Good in dry conditions. But average in terms of Mileage (25 000 miles) for a very light and most of the time empty Kangoo 1... Wear is more pronounced on the sides event though overinflated! Quite poor in the wet. Very easy to loose grip both when accelerating and in corners. Confort is good. I will not buy again given the high price compared to the quality.

front treads started tearing of in chunks before tires were halfway. Rear tires split the casing, very dangerous. I can't understand how MB could fit these as OE on their vehicles

Nexen Roadian CT8 rated 74% while driving a Citroën Relay
Driving on a combination of roads for 10000 easy going miles
Two tyres developed bulges after short time of being used, with still plenty of tread left to use.
