    Mooo..thanks for that!

    Just realised thought that I think the tyres on that site are the Bravuris 1 which aren't rated so highly.

    Still, anyone tried them?

    Thought about buying Barium from tyreshopper but could not work out if they were 1's or 2's, went with Neuton NT5000s in the end and I am really pleased with them.

    My wife has them on her SRI Astra all round and so far they have beeen good in all conditions and done no more or less miles than any others on there. I did buy them from tyre shopper and were fitted at my local National Tyres, they are apparently made by Continental. So for me no probs with them !

    Yeh, same here, I can't tell, think it's the 1's

    interested in the Neutons but can't be bothered with the faff of geting them delivered then fitted somewhere. Did you get yours from neo bros?

    Others I'm considering as the price is right if Falken 912, seem to rate OK. The 91W are a bit harder to come by though, the usual is 91V.

    byebyeitsagsi, the Falken 452 aren't available in 215/50/15, that's why I'm after the 912. Apparently they last longer as the 452 is a softer compound (will get more grip though).

    Don't want to get 225/45/17 as I'm only replacing one axle. The price difference isn't so great in this range only makes a big difference for the premiums.

    Yeah, got em from Neo Bros, they are the only distributor in the UK. Getting em fitted was no bother, just telephoned a local fitter and booked a time. For me the tyre fitting places the internet shops use tend to be miles away, so its as easy for me to get tyres delivered and arrange fitting.

    They've been a side product of Continental for quite some time now.

    Quite a few tyre manufacturers own other brands too. eg, Goodyear own the brands Dunlop, Falken, Fulda, and Kelly.
