Need New Tyres Urgently :/

Recommended Posts

one of my tyres is cut (probably due to me hitting the kerb)

so im going to replace the fronts

recommend me an all season tyre for my focus please

I don't drive fast anymore, so don't need really high performance ones so to speak

think they are 205/55/ 16 ?

Cheers

Personally I'd go for conti's premium contact 2 or Goodyear efficient grip

Toyo Proxes all the way. Got a set and love them.

good summer tyres, they have excellent grip, but wear too quickly, used them on other cars

I've got conti premium contacts on my car at the moment, I'm certain it's a 2 but you've now got me wondering - I'll check later

I can't fault the tyres at all, they stick like glue to the road, feels like the car is on rails sometimes, unbelievable grip

If I were to ever change them it'd be Goodyear efficient grip, as from reviews I've heard nothing but good things from them

Goodyear efficient grip on mine. I've thought about this like you are.from kwik fit.

I think 205/50/16 will make speedo spot on and not 3mph fast like the 55 profile.

so the previous owner has put the wrong size tyres on mine then ?

I have 205/55/16's ...

What are the tyres like all year round mate? you have a focus too?

Thanks

Yeh they've been excellent so far, I work nights and used to travel back in the middle of the night for my lunch break, so they've been over all kinds of icy conditions and as said been fabulous so far

Also I did check and they're conti premium contact 2s

Thanks for the information, might get a pair of those then

summer tyres are never going to be good in real winter conditions
