    I've got Sunny's. They were brand new fronts when I bought my Vec. Shoved them on the back and put Avon ZV5's upfront. No real issue but there is a droning on very smooth roads. Maybe when I change them I'll go, "hey why so quiet" but at the mo it's OK. One of the car magazines did a test on cheap tyres and the one they thought was dreadful was a Sunwa. I wouldn't put any cheap cack on the front/driven wheels, but the back ones aren't under the same pressures as the front.

    Vecs can be very tail happy as I found out when I had full runs on the rear of my v6cdti

    If you've got bad tyres on the rear, there's a real chance that the back of the car could break away sideways on sharp wet bends or wet roundabouts or any road surface where there's a lack of traction.

    That's why a lot of garges seem to suggest new tyres on the rear and the old rears (if they're OK tread wise) to the front.

    An American video but makes the point http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSz7cm6MwH0

    Sadly your theory there is flawed, there is more to it than just having the best tyres on the front and the pressure they are under

    The are so many factors to take into account, including specific tyre performance, tread depth, road surface, tyre pressure, vehicle type, vehicle direction, vehicle speed, vehicle braking, and so on

    In general the best tyres (on a FWD vehicle) should be placed on the rear, as the driver has no control over these
    If the rear tyres lose grip then the back of the car will always try to overtake the front, and the driver would want to avoid this at all cost
    If the front tyres lose grip the driver still has a certain amount of control, the distance to correct this is generally less

    I agree new tyres should really be fitted to the rear of the car. Michelin do recommend this aswell.
