What tyres are you running?


Recommended Posts

My Focus MK4 ST LineX (2019) came with Michelin Pilot Sport 3's, 235/40 ZR 18 95W

I don't push hard, not all the time, but am impressed. They have decent grip in pretty much all scenarios. When pushed i think it's the live rear axel that lets the side down.

I think the only gripe i have is their noise level, but that may be down to their low(ish) profile.

What are you rocking and are they any good?

In summer my ST is still on it's original Michelin Pilot Sport 4S's 235/35 ZR 19 91Y.

They have absolutely excellent grip wet or dry and always inspire confidence. They do generate a bit of road noise but not unbearable.

I will definitely fit another set once these wear out.

In winter I run a set of Goodyear UltraGrip Performance Plus's 235/40 R 18 95V on MK3.5 ST wheels.

These are fantastic in snow, slush and water and I did not get stuck at all this season.

They're quiet too for a winter tyre, probably as quiet as the Michelins.

They wear slowly as well, two winters done and still 6mm tread left all round.

My LX is running 'autogrip' tires, the cheapest on the planet LOL The car barely has enough power to punch it's way out of a soggy wet paper bag, and the tire is more than adequate. Road legal, passes every MOT. Now, years ago when I was a young thing, I'd have thought nothing of spending £200+ on a single Bridgstone for my Celica GT4, but now being an old f*rt, I'm quite happy if I get to the end of a journey without a puncture  🤣

I rate kuhmo tyres, used to fit alot of them a few years ago. Now fit them on all the cars I  look after (Mondeo,fiesta, fiesta, Peugeot 107 and seat Leon) decent tyres and sensible prices. 

But kumho don't do them for my vfr800 though 😂😂

Is my 2017 st line x the odd one out here?

Seems my front tyres are a different brand to the back.

Think it's Michelin on the front and Continental on the back or vice versa.

Is this normal or is my car as odd as its driver??????

Entirely normal LOL Fronts wear out quicker than rears, so replacement is often at different intervals and therefore reliant on whatever offer is current... :thumbsup:

That's the thing, it's happened to me 3 times now, everytime, I have only hit the 'submit' button once, yet it posted twice! Like I said, bl**dy annoying especially as you do not have the option to delete a post.

I have 3 x Goodyears and a Bridgestone Turanza.

I have a spare wheel and a new Michelin Pilot on top.

You carry two spares ? 

One in the boot and the on the roof like the Land rovers do in the desert ?

Must have some pretty bad roads out where you are to warrant two spares.
