Re: Tyre choice - your thoughts please!
Michelin offer a very good range and I have heard good things from users. I'm running Conti's at 245x35x17 which came with the car and I can't stand them. The profile doesn't even look like 35mm so they loose points on looks (why else run such extreme profiles in pothole city?) and the tread is boring. The grip is nothing to get excited about and the ride is f#cking terrible. Can't wait to change them for something more useable and less fuel consuming as these but at 900 Euros a set I'm not looking forward to it. I may go back to 16" rims on the standard 205x55 for winter use and will probably go for Michelin or Dunlop.
