Re: Advice on Tyres?
I have just got continental conti sport contacts all round, £70 each all fitted inc VAT.
So far very happy - much much quiter on motorways than firestones (though at lower speed although they are quieter, they dont seem it as the pitch is different), much much better wet grip and braking, and dry grip is good, if a little too progressive, which gives them a soft feeling (like the walls are a bit soft)- i.e they start to squeel sooner, but hold on almost as long, but this gives you more time to correct a lateral skid and less likely to over correct and fishtail (less twitchy).
Life??? Firestones did 27K miles with a swop f-r half way
