Tyres for 150 t jet sport

Hi
Its come to the time to replace the front tyres on my 150 sport. Currently have Pirelli's that came with the car and these lasted approx 13.5k miles.
Have got some quotes but need advice on which tyres I should go for (drive about 10k per year, mainly town driving but with some drives from the South East to the Midlands every 2/3 months).
Pirelli - 90 pounds
Goodyear - 82 pounds
toyo - 85 pounds
Not a lot of difference between the 3 but confused about which to go for.
Any advice would be helpful

Right now... winter tyres would probably be the best choice!

Goodyear Eagle F1s are ok - but pretty terrible in snow. Try Vredestein - I've a pair on the back and they seem very good. Oh and move the rears to the front and put the new tyres on the back. It's FWD and you don't want the front getting passed by the rear.

I would agree... F1's are fantastic on hot days, and positivley dangerous below freezing, let alone the temps we're getting now! I'd go for some winter tyres (even the cheap ones are better than expensive summer tyres... its the compounds used...) and get some nice F1's when it gets to may time! (and store the winter tyres for the next one...)

Re: Tyres for 150 t jet sport

Im Happy with the bridgestone potenzas re090 on both wet and dry roads and noise levels seem to be minimal. I replaced mine at around 14k when they had around 2.5mm left only because of my trip to south italy. ive done 12k on the new sets now and they have around 5mm left on them, the back ones have about 3.5mm left after 26,000 miles.

I paid about 95 all in for the potenzas ( at discounted rate as i worked for fiat at the time ) i think they retail at around 115 each.
These F1's are they really that good then? how much do they cost

Re: Tyres for 150 t jet sport

Is there any reason I couldn't use winter tyres, all year round? Loving those NOkians!

I got my Eagle F1s delivered and fitted at under 100 a corner. Same for the Sessantas.

The F1s are very, very good. Tonnes of grip and they give it up gradually - not a case of grip, grip, grip, crash. But awful on cold roads and snow. They're like slicks.

Re: Tyres for 150 t jet sport

What are your Nokians? Some are not really winter tires, mine are marked "all year round" or something like that. In the same time they have all the "winter tire" signs and properties...
