Default Wheel Scrabble no more?

I wonder

Have just fitted Nangkang AW6's yesterday, a cross seasons style tyre.

First impressions are good, and haven't noticed any scrabble so far. Ive had nangkangs on other cars and whilst fairly cheap, they seem to do a good job. Four tyres fully fitted for about 220 quid all-in.

I was NOT happy with the Bridgestone Ecopias.

Fuel consumption yesterday was 63mpg over about 50 miles - my average on the Ecopias was 59mpg - over a full year.

We'll see

Cheers!

Excellent! Scrabbling or crabbing is most noticeable when the tyres are very cold. It will be interesting to see if the issue has been completely eliminated when winter comes along.

220 or so fully fitted is a very good price. Was this from a local tyre depot or one of the nationals?

Further update - NK cross season tyres still very new, but seem noisier than the OE Bridgestones. Maybe they'll bed in a bit over the next few days. Grip is very good however.

From pictures - the NK tyre looks directional rather than asymmetric. Does the tyre have a rotation arrow on the sidewall? Many owners comment that fitting directional tyres seems to increase noise.

New tyres are on my list but I want Goodyear GT3s. They are quiet and sure footed. Also I want a next size up too. The current original tyres are not good.

GT3 isn't available in 16" size - as far as I can see. What do you mean by "next size up"?
