Best Tyres for 159 with 18" wheels?

My front tyres are just about done in after 13,500 miles - is this typical - seems a bit of a short life to me...

What tyres should I choose next which might give me better wear without compromising handling?

Any advice gratefully received....

Re: Best Tyres for 159 with 18" wheels?

Wear/handling/grip is a compromise. You want your tyres to last ages, and they won't be the type that grip well or produce the best handling characteristics. Goodyear F1 Assymetrics and Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta consistently get good reviews. Toyo Proxes T1Rs are popular here. (Tyre Test 2007 (Evo, Autocar, AutoExpress) - best and worst tyres!)
