In Topic: New Tyres For A Fiesta Metal?

Very true lol.

 

And I'd go for the Continentals if they're available, they seem to be the better tyre from what most people are saying.

 

Ok. Does it not matter having Continentals on the front, Bridgestones on the rear then?

So the general consensus is that the factory fitted tyres aren't necessarily the best? Should I go for the Continental Contact Sport 5 then or wait for the Potenza RE050A to arrive in stock? I can wait but if the Continentals really are better then I might as well go with them.

 

It's such a sweet handling car that I don't want to risk making any changes that could affect the handling.

 

Can get these for £114.12 each fitted at my local Protyre:

I've ordered a pair of those Bridgestones

 

Do you mean the Potenza RE050A or Tunanza?

If your worried just keep it to 70 :P

 

I usually cruise at 70 or even 60 because this car has crap fuel economy on the motorway (the engine speed is 3300rpm at 70!) but on the odd occasion when I need to put my foot down, I'm always paranoid that I'm putting too much strain on the engine, having the engine speed so high for extended periods. I'm guessing this isn't an issue in the ST because it has a 6th gear...

Thanks. Just me being paranoid then!
