    ……Mondeo ST TDCi. I didn't like the quote for £800 from Ford!

    Usual mileage 20k/year mainly motorway weekdays, or town with family weekends. I don't drive fast or hard, and rate wear, safety in the wet, low noise/economy as priorities. Budget around £450-550 for the four.

    Am considering Hankooks at £510. Any comments? I don't want to consider budgets, as the ones on there at the moment grip like teflon, despite lasting 20k.

    Conti SportContact 3s. £130 a tyre from Event mobile fitters (approx) I do drive hard and fast.

    Bu66er. Event don't cover Cardiff.

    Try another mobile fitter then… cheaper as they save on overheads.

    Falken ZE912 come in quite well priced and are a very good mid range tyre with good reviews.

    Been on my mrs bus for over 2 years and still faultless.

    Size??

    Find somewhere selling uniroyal rainsports or rainexperts – brilliant tyres and usually around 40-50 quid a corner. As good if not better than the sport contacts I had on and they were £120 a corner.

    Ah ridiculous size tyres, they're going to be £130 a corner + fitting then, even for half-decent tyres.

    coffeeking, indeed a ridiculous size – not through choice. Ever tried driving over potholes with them? No wonder my back is knackered.

    Black circles,

    Pirelli P Zero Nero 111 each fitted, at a local centre of your choice, I know quite a few people who have these and really like them, price is not to bad for what you get. lots of good reviews in black circles too.

    Cheers
