Hey guys, any suggestions as to what rubber to put on my car. Anyone know of any amazing deals on tyres??
Currently got Bridgestone Potenzas on but they've had it. Also they're not the best in terms of road noise, grip or longevity.

Size is 215-45-R17.

Ideally looking at £60-70 a corner. Don't mind delivered prices as a local place to me can fit and balance for £10 a corner.

Try tyreleader they seem to be best price for just the tyres. You will then need to arrange fitting. But you still get an amazing saving some times :) used them for my cars an motorbikes :)

Well I want decent grip for the odd occasion when I feel like giving it beans around a roundabout :) but I guess more importantly i want a tyre that's going to last and isnt too noisy at motorway speeds.

Go for a vredestein, I do tyres and people who put them on love them, grip like hell and not the most expensive thing there is.

Year had considered them also although never heard of them up until a day ago?


Not common at all, people think of a good tyre they think of michellin, Dunlop, Pirelli, everything obvious.

Hankooks are good but im go for Kumho ecsta le sport. Similar price but better in the wet and wear better

I have Vredestein on my main car, though that's not my GP. I've used them on and off for about 15 years and always found them quiet and OK grip-wise.

They used to be owned by BF Goodrich, they're owned by Apollo now who also own Cooper Tire

Went with Hankook V12 evo's s in the end. £260 delivered. Will get them fitted tomorrow. Reviews seemed o.k and for that price I can't complain. Certainly better than the Bridgestone Potenza's currently on.:)

I have Hankook Optima on my other car, and just changed the front set at 38,000 miles, with 2.5mm still on.
Back set are still going strong.

Grip wasn't so great on the fronts down at 2.5mm though.
