Default Tyre Recommendations - 13th April 2013, 10:59 AM

I know that everyone loved all the tyre threads we had here before, so I start the first one

I am going to need a couple of front tyres soon as I have managed to wear away the edges much quicker than the rest

They are currently ContiSportContact 3s. Not sure whether to just get a couple of more, or change for something else. I am swaying towards just replacing them like for like so I have the same all round without buying four new tyres. Where is the best place i.e. price to get them from?

Cheers

I had a local place by me..... Contact sport 3 non run flats are 100

I went for falken s at 80 a tyre, there the latest ones and have good write ups....

I had the new falken s swapped to the front and my rear conti's put on the front...

Contis are brilliant but they just don't last
I have Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 but you have to go with 215s, they don't do 205.
