    Default Suggestion on Tyres

    As title says really.

    The two front tyres need replacing and having started to look at various options, budget of course , the three that immediately stand out, based on reviews are;
    Neuton nt5000 - £65.88 ea
    Neuton nt8000 - £71.52 ea
    Kumho Ecsta Le Sport KU39 - £87.83 ea

    What are your thoughts on these tyres or are there alternatives within the same price range that deliver equal/ better performance and longevity.

    Regards

    Steve

    All season tyres and nothing else.

    Mytyres.co. or blackcircles. I fit my own so save a few quid but these have fitting stations.

    As above, what tyre size specifications?
    Is that a price supplied or fitted?

    Personally, on fitting the new tyres put these on the rear, swap the existing rears to the front

    Out of the ones you have selected, I would go for the Ecsta
    I've just bought two Michelin Primacy HP 225/45R17 94W for £95 fitted (normally £135) each

    If you want a great wet weather tyre with good grip in the dry look at Uniroyal Rainsport 2, there a bit more expensive but worth it.
