Im coming in at a budget end of the scale Nexen, not sure of the exact model number but it was about £20 cheaper than Pirelli's and Michelin's for my i think ridiculous 195/50 tires on my Flame, its only a 1.4, sticks to the ribbon quite well to be fair, they seem to have quite a few fans in online reviews they just dont carry the brand power when you try to show off to your mates.

Avons did well on my Festa - although noisier on the road. Even got my through the depths of Winter 2010 :D

Not to hi-jack the thread, but with regards to changing tyres, is it worth changing all 4 at the same time?

The previous owner of mine changed them one at a time so they're all worn differently, with the front left needing a change and the rear right having 6 mm of tread left....

Change 2 at a time so that you have a matching pair on each axle.

What the other Nathan said, mine had 2 sets fronts are firestone and the backs were bridgestones until one wore out, i would reccomend atleast matching the front set as they are load bearing taking both power and handling, i must say the firestones are pretty sticky, although thats because they are soft and i have been told that they go pretty quickly. I would just say buy the best branded tire at the lowest price.

I've put BF Goodrich g force profiler on the front of mine, simply amazing in wet and dry. Far more grip in the wet when compared to the old conti's i had before.

I can't fault the Hankook's on mine. Had Toyo Proxes T1R's on my old Matiz which I couldn't fault, though they have a sporty tread if that's an issue.

I agree about Profilers used them on my previous Focus they are good tyres,( however earlier versions were Ok but noisy) as far as Contis I have them on my 2012 Fiesta, not so sure?... half worn out at 13000 kms, lost a lot of pressure during summer for some reason and for the first time ever I experienced aquaplaning at 50 kph
Will not be staying with them.
