Well Happy Wow! New tyres...

What a difference! Since buying my GTV one year and 20,000 miles ago I've been driving on Pirelli P6000s. Well, they're now as bald as badgers so off to Black for some replacements.
Read posts about tyres going back a year and more and got some Kumho KU31 205/50R16s.
Wow! No need to change the wheel bearings! All the whine and rumble has gone!

Haven't tried in the wet but dry grip is fine and less squelling on the roundabouts.

Generally very happy with the price and quality - about £70 per tyre inclusive.

P2 GTV 3.0

Yeah they are very sensitive to tyres and the rear suspension especially transmits a lot of noise. Just got a set of Vredestein Sessantas and its like a new car!
