What's the recommended tyre for Focus 2.5 17"?

Recommended Posts

Need a new tyre, so i'll be getting a pair of tyres

 

currently got Conti sport contact 2's on (17")

 

is it worth sticking with this or changing ?

The newest are Sport Contact 5, and I had originally Sport Contact 3 on mine. Depends if you want better fuel economy vs grip or a combination of both really. The Sport Contact's aren't the most fuel efficient nor are they the worst but I'm quite happy with my purchase.

i know its best to get contis again, but what if i changed the tyres to something completely different ?

i wouldn't mind going back to Dunlops for example

Even Ford don't always stick to one tyre.

My mum's came with Michelin from the factory, where 6 months before cars were coming with Conti's.

I think it depends on the deal they get at the time.

Hi 

I went for uniroyal rain sport 2 on my focus but have Hankook on the wife's car both tyres are excellent in the wet.
