    Ed,

    try and get your hands on a set of goodyear optigrips

    very good summer weather tyre with the added bonus of smartwear technology which increases water dispursion on worn tyres,

    very quiet and comfortable ride and they do tend to stop you aquaplaning

    The F1s and the Ultrac Sessentas both have great reviews, Ed. What's the price difference between them?

    I just got a pirelli p zero nero 225/45/18 from local wholesalers for £99 and going to get another to balance the front on pay day.

    Really impressed with the grip and everything though will be able to tell better when i get the other side fitted and got both new ones on.
