This is the result that i would have expected?

To me this sums up my point of view? Many of my customers here in Halifax Yorkshire, would love to able to afford Continental tyres or Michelin tyres, but they just cannot afford them.
We have to offer them a complete choice of brands including budget SUV tyres.
It is the drivers of the second hand SUV’s that are also suffering from lack of finances. These people usually have a young family and buy an SUV for the extra space that they offer.

However if you can afford to buy Continental tyres then you are buying a better product than budget SUV tyres, but any new tyre is miles better than the dreaded part worn?
