    Default Triangle Talon tyres

    Got 2 of these for £82. They look ok although they aren't being fitted till tomorrow.

    Anyone heard of or used these?

    Sure they were black? The ones i got were white.....

    I've heard they can be quite rubbish in the wet when they are just put on, but after a few miles they are quite good. Suppose you get what you pay for

    The SRi came with 4 different tyres anyway

    £41 is a good price, let us know if they are any good. The prestivos I bought for £95 each seem to be very quiet and quite grippy. Just the wobble problem to sort out!

    My tracking is out as the old tyres are badly worn on the outside on the front passenger wheel. I haven't checked the driver side but there is a wobble from the steering wheel around 80mph+ not sure wether that's just because of the speed, but i'm getting the alignment checked tomorrow anyway

    Hey T4M you buy what you can afford mate, dont expect the same performance as more expensive make though , they should serve you quite well.

    tbh tyres are tyres, kwik fit wanted £400 quid for 2 Michelin - told them to f*ck right off!!!

    i only go from A to B most days anyway, then 4 hours every fortnight doing deliveries. I was speaking to a taxi driver who has a vectra who said he needs to change his tyres every 6 months - i can't imagine him buying top of the range ones every time!!!!!
