I need 2 new tyres for the rear of my car. Is there no point being as picky as I would be if I was choosing 2 new tyres for the front?

Have something to contribute?

Get some 100 width wheels and tyres and do some maaaaad skids.

I say get the best you can, that way when the fronts are wearing, you can swap them round.

Yes. Sudden oversteer is harder to deal wi than under steer.

Just changed 2 tyres -195-16 45.
Were Continentals but got Hankook Ventus Prime 2.
£20 cheaper than the Ford supplied Continentals.
Much quieter and very good wet or dry.
So much to recommend .
Cheers

Are the Hankooks better than Continentals? I have Hankooks on from new, and it looks like it'll be Continental next but I might swap them over.

I've tried Hankook and Kuhmo tyres and while they were quiet from new when they got to 10-12K miles they were noisy and tramlined on the motorway so I always stick to Continental they also last longer.

Hi Diesel pig, first time for me with Hankooks ,as far as I can tell the version I have got are a new updated type and after I had them fitted I checked out reviews on line and most were full of praise which I was pleased about, of course it all depends on what the reviewers had previously, what car and type of roads/driving they all did.
No evidence of tramlining as yet but only rotated 900 mls on them.
I hope I get more than 12K out of them,only time will tell if not back to drawing board.
Cheers
Martin.
