    Default Which tyres would you choose?

    Hi folks,

    Need a new set of boots fairly soon. Do have a budget but dont want to compromise on safety.

    Have read numerous reviews and am really torn.

    Which would you choose please?

    Thanks.

    Rainsport 3's. Best tyres I ever had on my Vectra. Well ok, nearly best. The Rainsport 2's were slightly better IMHO, but they're now obsolete I believe.

    Horses for courses with tyres. I've tried many makes of tyres, some which I thought were awful, others on here rate highly:

    Nexen: dangerous, excessive sway, removed after 200 miles
    Hankook: ok,... good grip both wet and dry, lasted only 10k
    Vredestein: good,.... excellent grip, lasted only 10k miles
    Rainsport: good, .... excellent grip, lasted only 10k miles
    Goodyear Assymetric: Excellent, superb grip wet and dry, lasted 25k miles

    Depends which Vredesteins. The Sportrac I usually get around 30K on my Vectra. The Ultrac Sessanta - the wife's Astra SRi ate a set in 8K ( good grip while they lasted though )

    For two vehicles...

    1) Vectra CDTI 2008
    2) Mercedes C-Class CDI 2010. This requirement is the current urgent one.

    I have had three sets of Ultrac's on my 2t's...love em and as said whilst they do offer excellent wet and dry handling they dont last that long..but im more than happy with the compromise..

    My friend has Sportrac's on his honda civic,at my recommendation. Loves em.
