    Kwik-fit were doing a good deal on contis (either 25% or 30% off if you buy 4). I got a set of 4 fitted recently from them

    nickc......why don't you get internet price/quote printed off and take it to your local main tyre dealer and ask them if they can do better. you might only get the balancing and fitting for free but it'll buy a few shandy's at the weekend. HTH

    Contis are total rubbish, I near went off the road twice with them on the back of the Astra, despite having 5mm tread left. Like driving on ice when the road was wet.

    I run Vredestein Ultrac and Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymetrics in 225-45/17 on the Astra, and to be honest I think I'll be putting more Ultracs on in the future - they're a better tyre than the Goodyears. Cheaper too, less than £80 fitted each compared to the £98 each fitted for the Eagles.
