    In view of the fairly poor rear view visibility on the Guilietta has anyone experienced problems when driving on the Continent while overtaking or driving off from rest using mirrors and /or rear window observation?

    Now it's not a usual thread asking what people think of these tyres as I know that both of these are rather good and hard to choose between them as people like different things. Just asking if anyone knows a better price than as I would be wanting them delivered as I can give some...
