    rolleyes What's the best tyre out of these

    Hi All

    It's that time again, I have been looking around for some new tyres and have come up with these three.

    Uniroyal Rainsport 2
    Pirelli P Zero Rosso
    Bridgestone S001

    They are all £99.99 fitted, The question is which one is the best.
    I have some Kumho Ku31's on the front at the moment replaced about 1.5k ago and find these to be noisy.
    Thanks

    Have you read the reviews on them and what do they say?

    Got Pirelli on all 4 of them but not that model of tyre.

    4th vote for the Rainsport 2's. Best tyres I've ever had on a car.

    £99.99 each fitted is more than I paid for my 225/45/17's. What size are yours?

    IIRC £80 each from Camskill, and £10 a corner to fit at the local tyre garage.
