    Default What Tyres Should I Buy???

    Hi

    I have a Vec C 2.0 DTI fitted with the standard Bridgestone Turanza E30 tyres. Ever since I've had the car I've been really dissapointed with how noisy they are and they've cancelled out the benefits of the Vec's low wind noise.

    Thankfully they are now due for replacement, but what should I choose as an alternative? My priorities are low noise and comfort, performance and longevity are secondary. Many people have suggested Michelin Pilot Primacy's but they are an expensive tyre. Just wondered if anyone here had any relevant experience and comments?

    Cheers

    I think the Goodyear NCT5s were the quietest I have had but their grip was only better than the Perelli P6000s.

    I've tried (in order of performance)...

    Toyo T1-R (Good tyres!)
    Goodyear Eagle F1 (Good in the dry...don't use them in winter)
    Goodyear NCT5 (Quiet and long life with great fuel economy)
    Pirelli P6000 (cheap, last a long time, made of recycled plastic!)

    I'm fed up with testing now though and have ordered two Toyo 888s for this weekend. Don't supose they will be very quiet but they should grip like nothing else.

    So were the NCT5s the quietest you've had so far? What's the standard fitment on the CDTi?
