    I have Vredestein Sessanta's on mine as that's what i was recommended over the toyo's, they are excellent in both wet and dry conditions and very quiet, I had bridgestones before and they were terrible for road noise.

    I had sesstantas on after pirreli's.................lasted no time at all and got a hell of a lot of tramming from them which got worse and worse as they wore.........took them off with 4mm tread and replaced with T1r's...far better in my IMO........and still going strong 8000 miles later and have suffered very little wear too........and i drive with a heavy right foot also,
    however I am on 18's

    Bought my 235/40/18 ultracs in may 2009, Not noticed any tramlining at all and they still have a good 6mm tread left across the whole of the tyre, even after 2 journeys through france and into spain and back..they are also a hell of a lot better ride than the 19" snowies I ordered the car with..

    They seem decent prices mate - where from?

    One thing I will point out, Ive had both tyres. Currently using Vresteins. The T1R's are fab, really liking them but they do have very soft side walls, sometime you can really feel it through the car and also, very fast wearing. Dont want to put you off, as i though they gad fantastic grip, wet and dry. Both great tyres imo.
