  1. Which Summer Tyre Should I Pick?

    I was going to buy new 4 turanza er300(my current tire) since no one replied here and other websites. Now I'll consider your thoughts and decide which tire again more specifically. Thank your both of you for the comments.
  2. Hi, I have 2009 mk2.5 Ford Focus 1.6(petrol) hatcback car. I have been reading comments from tyre review websites and some advices from blogs but I am confused and I heard that most of the car crashes happens because of wrong tire choice. So, I don't want to make a mistake. Could you please help me to pick summer tyre for my car? Tire size is 195/65/15 91 H. The car came with Bridgestone's Turanza ER300. I haven't had a problem with them so far but they need to be changed. I read that they are good on especially wet but they are noisy. I don't care about the noise at all. Safety and performance is more important to me. I live in Turkey/Izmir which is very hot city in summer and rainy most of the time in the winter. There are lots of cracks and some holes on the roads.(poor asphalt quality) I made a list but I can't decide Bridgestone Turanza ER300 (same on the car) Bridgestone Turanza T001 (they say it is new er300) Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 (I saw it on other Focus hatcbacks) Michelin EnergySaver / + Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance or if you have other tyre brand/model suggestions please write here.
