    Default GOODYEAR GSD3 or DUNLOP 9000s

    Both are 94W (£78) or 91Y for a pound less (225x45x17) think the veccy should run 93W so the 91Y may not be the best choice.

    The F1's are spoken of lots on here but never the Dunlops! The Duns have rim protectors but not sure about F1's.

    I want a good tyre but if there is not much difference in the grip (esp. wet) then I would go for the loner lasting one.

    Thanks

    91Y are perfectly adequate for your 2.2 - you don't need any higher rating.

    I've never used either tyre so best I could advise, until anyone else comes along, is to have a look at the tyre sites and the links to reviews they have there.

    Have a look at that - both tyres are listed. Goodyears getting a better report then the Dunlop.

    If you fit 225/45/17's, they overhang the rim by a small amount, just enough to prevent the odd scuff mark. Wouldnt stop a proper kerbing, though....

    Yep, and some of them will come as rim protector versions as well, so a bit more protection again - but still not enough, as you say, to prevent a proper kerbing.

    My F1's are very good. Grippy, Hardwearing and precise in the wet.

    Dunlops as fitted to my Brother in Laws Audi, wore out after 12.000 miles and he drives like a Vicar.

    Thanks guys, looks like GSD3 F1's then and the kerbing was for when the wife drives lol.

    Should I go for the 91Y or 94W as only a pound in it. Would the 94 (can take more weight) last a bit longer and do they add more weight to the car?

    Need to order today.

    Have had Dun 9000's on another car and the grip was great although 6000 had them done.
