I have recently bought a 2003 Fiesta 1.4' petrol.
OK, a bit old but I know the owner who has had it from new and who has loved it and had it Ford-serviced all its life and it has only clocked up 47,000.
It's a great little motor but the tyre noise over 50mph is making me think of getting rid of it and at 70 it is unbearable, even with AVC set to +7.
It has alloy wheels and is currently running on Pirreli P6000's 195/50 R15 V, which admittedly are so old the side walls are starting to crack, even though there is plenty of tread left.
So, with MOT coming up I know it will be highlighted and I am quite prepared to spend a couple of hundred on new tyres but which ones?
Tyre reviews are mixed and it almost seems that a tyre on one car will be noisy whereas on another it will be considered quiet.
So, can anyone recommend a tyre that will let me listen to my radio at a level below which my ears bleed?
MOT due next Sunday, 18th, so I don't have long.
