    as glen says.. get some vredesteins from camskill, best tyre i have used (i have tried quite a few in my time ).. tbh i don't i don't think i will go with any other tyre these days... their UltraC and Sessanta are great tyres..

    I'd also agree with the Vredesteins, but sadly I couldn't afford them when I needed tyres

    No budget really looking £100+ ish at the moment. Kuhmo's have been mentioned too us, but thought I'd see what you guy recommend too before looking at the weekend.

    And Tony we need to arrange to meet up sometime

    I'll remember to complain about the service then!! He only phoned up to book it in for it's service and get them to fit the springs whilst it's in and then ordered the shocks, bleeding men!!

    I've just fitted Kuhmo's to the rear of mine and I'm rather happy with them for the money tbh

    I was also told to check out mytyres.co.uk, apparently they do similar to black circles but cheaper
