Tyres, tyres, tyres...


I read a number of threads here concerning tyres (sort of).
Maybe it would be nice to have all experience concerning this in one thread.

So everyone who has a good or bad experience whit a certain type or brand of tyre, please let the rest of us know.

Stuff like treadwear, traction in dry an wet, price, noise, ... would help a lot of people (including me) in choosing new tyres.

I'll start:

Dunlop SP 300 (on clio)
treadwear: 80.000km (on not fully worn out)
traction when dry: good
traction when wet: tends to slide easy
noise: very good (not very large 185/65)
Price: I paid about 500.

Who's next???

for the summer i have the p7000 from pirelli

good grip on every road, but it seems that problems are coming along with the cold weather...

my winter tyres
malatesta polaris (maybe you don't know what;s that... ) italian winter tyres
unbelievable good grip and brake on snow...good grip on the mountain roads, but on a clean road, with no snow they are a bit noisy
