Just wondering what tyres people favour? Not after performance just value for money and obviously a good amount of grip. I've always gone for kuhmo, not sure I'm getting an epic amount of miles from them but they are good value.

I use Goodyears in the summer and Vredstiens in the winter, i rotate my tyres :lol:  on multiple rims to get the best wear and keep the best for autumn/ spring - (i check my tyres frequently) i used to run cheap tyres (like makes youve never heard of) but ive learned its false economy cutting corners on tyres in the long run

 

Im thinking of getting a pair of 888s (for the front/ driven wheels) for my (planned) drag racing but might wait till next year as everything is taking longer than expected and the summer will be over before we know it

Avon ZZ3 for me, good grip, long wearing and low road noise.

Don't get Continental Premium Contact's, they're terrible, it's like driving on ice when it rains a fair deal on the things >_> and not all that amazing in the dry either.
