might be worth a pre-order and keep them in stock.

If you do, store them stacked on their side in a dry, cool, dark place.

Others may have different views, but I'm expecting well over 20K on my UHPs.

I've done about 10K now with a good 6mm left and I change tyres at 4mm having started with 8mm when new.

Looks like this will be sooner not later now.
The treg is in for service and they have found a cut to one of the tyres so I will get it back and check it out.

They have told me that they can fit a new tyre for ?264
I told them that I would only ever fit a set of even matched tyres not one new with 3 very worn tyres.
So I will source my own now.

?534 for 4 quality 20inch tyres is crazy , just shows if you do some research & take some good advice running + maintainig so called high end vehicles can be done without busting the wallet

Like a few others on the forum i am running uhp grabbers (20"), you are going to be very pleased with your choice, i've driven on deep mud and snow with confidence, grabbers a really good value for money.

I put Grabber UHPs on my last treg and was very happy with them (P Xd the car after 5000 miles but they were as good as new). I will be back on Grabbers soon- my new Treg has done 5,200 miles on it's Pirellis and I am down to 4mm all round

That's a useful comparrison .
Nice to know that on fitting these there is already
prior knowledge that they will give good service compared to other makes.
