Telepgraph motoring expert Honest John has offered advice to one of his readers who is keen to get the safest and most durable tyres for his vehicle.
RH from Tonbridge asked the motoring agony aunt: “I have a 2012 Volvo XC60 D5 manual with Pirelli P Zero Rosso 235/60 R18 tyres. The wear is even but I am disappointed with the rate at which the rubber is disappearing. It only goes off-road on the grass of a caravan site. I seem to recall you recommending Michelin tyres for long life. Is that correct?”
To which Honest John replied: “All tyres are a compromise between grip and wear. P Zero Rossos have plenty of grip – which explains the wear. Michelin Latitudes also grip well, and might also provide greater durability.”
