Beware that the tyres could have been in store for a length of time before your bought them. 6 to 12 months not uncommon.
Never allow your tyres to get anywhere near the minimum tread depth of 1.6 mm. If they are at about 3 mm and winter is coming best to replace.
A lot of people I know have 2 sets of tyres Summer and Winter sets and swap late Oct. and early Mar. But these are lads doing a lot of driving 15,000+ however there are multi purpose tyres on sale now.
I would expect to pay between £90 and £120 per tyre but that could be out of date and is for my SUV which has large tyres 235/65 18” 107. I could pay £160+ for top of the range ones but no point as no high speed driving these days.
The set on now bought Oct 2018 and front down to 5 mm rear 7.5 mm swap now done.
Will probably change in Oct 2022 but only doing @ 5,500 miles a year now so ? Unless I feel that they have gone off as I can usually tell if the carcasses are going weak ( or I used to )
Because I tow my Caravan a lot I keep a check on all tyres as I change the pressures for towing. Tyre pressures checked every couple of weeks but again I can tell any changes due to handling. Not as good as I used to be though.
