    it all depends on budget, how far are you ready to go..
    i'd always go for pirelli, dunlop or bridgestone..
    i have dunlops atm and they are great, much softer (more quiet) and handle better than potenza i had until few weeks ago..
    pirelli pzeros are great tires too!

    but as said, these are top 3 perfomance-wise but the most expensive ones too...

    we are coming back to the budget..

    Money isnt really the issue within reason...

    I would like a hard wearing tyre, but not to ruin the handling and comfort side of things

    Currently have Falken ZE912's (i think? raining outside so not looking lol)

    I have Pirelli P Zero Rossa's on the front of mine (235 35 19") and I have to say they are crap in the wet. No feedback, very little grip and they still have 6mm tread left.

    I have put Avon ZZ3's on the back which are not too bad to be honest, but they have only done 400 miles so far. But the best tyres I have used on the 19" rim are the continentals, and Dunlop Sport 01's
