    NOOOOOOOO!!!
    Not Nankangs - they are awful. Had a set on the front of mine for 9k. The wear was very uneven and they where shyte in the wet, dry and anything in between.
    Would never ever buy a nankang tyre again, cheapo tyres are fasle economy. They are the only thing keeping you on the road. Whats your budget per tyre?

    Default Barum....

    Was looking at these for my focus last year - made by Avon and very reliable.
    Little over your budget but well worth the small amount extra

    Cheers Andrew,a bit out of my price range,like i said only have £60 max per tyre,the one's i'm looking at are £ 200ish for a set of 4,i know its false economy buying cheap tyres but thats all i can afford at the moment,have found those Barum's cheaper somewhere else (£70 each).

    Not gettting my alloys till the 1st march so no immediate rush.....
