    My cheapo triangle ones are good in the wet and dry and have a deep recess for the tyre lip so more rubber to protect the rim compared to some of the other cheaper ones I've tried...

    Who the **** thought that was a good name for a tyre company?

    Depends greatly on budget dude. Uniroyal Rainsport 2 always gets a good report with Vectras, as does the Falken FK452. Both good tyres for the money.

    We don't all live in the same part of the country as up here i live in a place with seven hills, i want grip up them when it turns nasty, if it was flat like most of Lincolnshire my choice may change.

    You have to suit to your needs.

    I am quite anal about tyre noise, so always look for that when deciding on tyres, I have found both Evergreen and Altenzo (Sports Comforter) to be very good in the noise department and also provide very good grip (admittedly a bit less now after the remap in the rain ) and they are reasonably priced too.
