If your driving a car hard enough to tell the difference between budget and premium and on the public highway then you haven't got the brains you was born with . I've used them for yrs and had good grip and traction .
Bit strong mate
.... budgets have their place i.e. when I was a student on 50p per week and driving a gutless fiesta.
Appreciate that laying out £350 ++ isn't always easy, but "billy bongo's" are a false economy IMO, they wear down quicker, poor handling and poor wet weather control. All means you'll be on set number 2 sooner than a quality tyre and ultimately spend more i.e. you've spent a fiver to save 50p mentality.
Here's a typical example of Bridgestone's Vs. Billy Bongo's at Rockingham Wet Pan

By all means save money elsewhere, but having a quality set of rubber, can mean the difference between life and death - i.e. reach a hill brow, there's an obstruction, roads wet or greasey etc, and you have to do a hardcore set of avoidance moves!!!
Why do you think Budgets are branded as "DITCH FINDERS". Couple such crap to a high performance car, then ensure your in car entertainment is playing "Stairway to Heaven"
If funds are tight, then Falken's (as what Symon said) or Nexen's would be better.
Best bet is to source online and get a deal on something quality - all the big makes will have something thats better than low quality tosh.
