    Question Sorry to start another tyre thread......

    I'm in the market for 4 new 235/40/R18 tyres since my last car more or less ruined my Runway enduro 916s

    I am roughly budgeting 100 quid a tyre and I have stuck between 2 kinds. I'd like to try the Neuton NT8000s after reading all of the rave reviews about the NT5000 but no-one has really commented on the newer tyre

    The other tyre i'm looking at is the Marangoni Mythos which I can get from Kwik Fit for 98 quid a go (not a bad price) with a lifetime insurance against punctures and accidental damage. Now the cheapest I can get this tyre fitted from mytyres.co.uk is £117 so Kwik Fit's price is very good but.....I hate Kwik Fit

    Can anyone help me with my choice?

    I have to admit, the Marangoni is a pretty smart looking tyre

    Just avoid any tyres made in China, and give a wide berth to those made in Korea.

    I'm on the 5000's and no complaints at all. The 8000's are meant to be even better.

    Having run Falken tyres on my Stag for the last 3 years I thought I'd give them a go on my Vectra, mine are 225/45/18 Falken FK452's and they've been great so far. They do these in the size you're after.
