    Default Best Tyres

    I have a 2007 Vectra Sri 150 CDTI, needing 2 front tyres soon as the original Goodyear NCTs are on their last legs. Any suggestions on tyres would be welcome, the car runs on the standard 17" Sri rims, want a tyre with good grip in wet and dry but also would like good wear, had f1s on a previous Astra and the grip was awsome but didnt get 7000 miles from them :/.

    If you could give your tyre make etc, grip in wet/dry and how long they lasted id be very grateful.

    Thnx

    Some good reviews here http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/

    Me, I've got Uniroyal Rainsport 2 on my GSi for the very reasons that you want from a tyre.

    A lot of members on here have also been fitting the Falken 452 or 912 the past year.

    Just to add to the confusion, search in the forums s there's lots of opinions on what's best.

    ps. posting this cos the alarm's just gone off at work exactly at the time of your post and I've been called out . Might as well make the most of my time awake.

    Presumably all four tyres are :
    Good Year NCT5 215/50 R17 91W

    Consider :
    Good Year Eagle F1 GSD3 (if still available from retailer) 225/45 R17 91W
    Good Year Eagle F1 Assymetric 225/45ZR17 (91W)
    Dunlop Sport Maxx 225/45ZR17 (91W)
    Michelin Primacy SZE 225/45ZR17 (91W)

    When you have the front tyres renewed, swap the rears to the front and have the new tyres fitted to the rear; this will help even out wear
    Swapping from 215/50 R17 to 225/45 R17 will also save you a few pounds

    I've started changing from the Eagle F1 GSD3 to the Dunlop Sport Maxx, slightly cheaper but so far just as good
