Our Fleet Test Drive: Peugeot 508 SW - 9th Report

Date: 27 April 2012   |   Author: Tristan Young

Back to summer tyres

My local Peugeot dealer, Charters in Aldershot, provided great service when the time came to remove the 508's winter tyres and refit the summers. Within 24 hours of enquiring about the switch I left on the summers, and they also offered free wi-fi and complimentary tea.

The summers feel nearly identical to the winter Michelin Alpins, which is praise indeed for the latter, and if I couldn't swap between tyres I'd probably stick with them as in recent, warmer weeks they were better at shifting standing water on the motorway with what seemed to be no compromise.
