    I think one of the most popular are Goodyear F1's but for performance go for Toyo T1-R's. Got them on mine and stick to road like glue.

    Dunno about the cheapest. There are a lot of cheaper brand tyres out there that claim to be as good as the branded, but not sure how true that is. Trouble is, make the wrong choice and its a while to change them.

    I still rave about Goodyear Eagle F1's. The best tyres I ever had on a car.

    Mind you, I always liked Falkens, when I was driving 'Fast Fords'. Might give them a go on the Siggy.

    I have always loved the Avon ZZ3's, especially on my Old Vec B SRi.

    'Best' depends on your criteria on what you want out of a tyre.

    I want long life and low cost, not too interested exceptional grip as I don't rally my car.

    Its not so much the rallying, Its a case of hitting a suspect peice of road and trusting the tyres will grip, alot of the members on here do not rally their cars. The ones I have on at the moment are terrible in the wet and cornering is very slippery, I will change them soon when I can afford to, but rallying doesn't come into it.

    For me, cheapest and best don't go in the same sentence when you're talking about tyres. I could point out loads of cheap tyres, but would I have them on my car? Would I hell.

    You want a good tyre, it's going to cost you - and it's whether you want out and out performance and not bothered about wear, or whether you want a good balance of both.

    Personally, as I've said elsewhere, the Michelin Pilot Sport 2 are my current favourite. Excellent wet and dry grip, low noise and reasonable wear - certainly better for wear than the really, really sticky tyres like some of the Toyos - and some of that type of tyre aren't great in the wet. Not meaning the Toyos specifically, but some tyres that perform very well in the dry don't perform well in the wet.

    I'm thinking of switching to Toyo's when the $hitty NTC's are past it, which will be very very soon. Toyo's are great, but I found them to be really soft. Still thinking about some GY F1's, can't stretch my budget to the pilot sports.

    Camskill have the Goodyear F1's on offer at £69.50 per tyre which is a bargain link
