Opinions on OEM tyres

Hi all,

My MultiJet came fitted with 185/55R16 Goodyear EfficientGrip tyres.

My question is, are all new panda's fitted with these or do they differ depending on engine and trim config's.

If others have the EfficientGrip's fitted, what do you think of them. I find mine make the car stupidly bouncy and it feels as though the tyres are made of jelly. When the car is parked up, if you push the car it will literally wobble about on it's tyres for a second before stopping again! They are also the worst tyres, by a long way that i've ever had on any car when it comes to wet or slippery surfaces.

The car was weaving about on a frosty road the other morning, I was going in a straight line at about 30mph on a smooth road. Must of looked quite comical to the driver behind Never had a car do that before.

I might have to fork out for some winter tyres before we get any properly bad weather come our way. Or ANY other tyre for that matter

Auto express just tested these tyres and gave them 1st place. A different size though but same pattern
click here for test

Have you checked your pressures?

Also, I think you will have 15" tyres not 16"??

Re: Opinions on OEM tyres

Of the two types of tyres I have seen fitted are the Good years and the Continental eco contact 5. My local tyre guy sells continental and I get better prices on those. So many tyre reviews out there. My Easy has the Continentals.

Re: Opinions on OEM tyres

I got Continental Eco Contact 5 with my Pop and they're really good.

I've currently got Nokian WR D3's on over winter though, also very good but obviously not OEM

Yeah I did mean 15" not 16"

I have read very good things about the Nokian winter tyres, seem to come out on top in nearly every test.
