Tyre preferences

Postby lanigan » Fri Oct 09, 2009 10:24 pm

Going from another thread on tyre wear, whats are peoples preferences on tyres? Ratings on wear, grip, road noise, etc? Best buy and worst buy so far?

My best buy has to be Hankook, low road noise, excellent grip, and fantastic wear - 160euro a tyre

Worst has to be Yokohama, low road noise, super grip, but wear was terrible, compound far too soft and within 15000km i had gone through the thread to the steel :evil: at 720euro for the set i'd never recommend them for daily driving, track yes, road no

Best in between were Runways, noisy, not so good in the wet but when times are hard the price & wear resistance is a god send

michlien rally slicks,, not exactly road leagel but the grip is un real, not even r888 come close and u can but part used off rally teams for about 50 a tyre, when i say part used there perfect,, advised not to run them on the rear there is a chance of brake ind a drive, :)

had continatal conti contacts 150 a tyre, good tyre not fantastic for the money thou.

best bugget tyre kinforest kf660 50 each and they kick the s@3! out of the yokahama s that are now on the front.

the brother has yokahama a048 in a medium compound and they are very good,but wear quickly

I had Uniroyal Rainsport 2 €110 each on 17's.. I found then very grippy in dry and wet conditions, road noise was fine, can't comment on the wear though because i didn't have them long enough to test, as i sold the car.

I have anything from Kenda, Federals, Autoguard, Starmaxx, Michelin e.t.c.

Have to say the best I had on the tez were Semperits for the wet, cut trough any flood off water no problem. Cant remember road noise, but wear on mine doesnt last long .
