    Default Tyre Brands (Part 2)

    What is your preferred tyre brand for the Vectra?

    I've try to list all I can think of, and have put it alphabetically over two polls.

    The other poll is at:

    Why Uniroyal Rainsport 2 - good value for money (c.£100 a corner fitted), excellent handlind in the dry AND the wet, good looking tread pattern and, by all accounts, great wear rate.

    I should, if the maths is right, get 18k miles from the fronts on my GSi by the time they get to 3mm.

    I paid £85 a corner (225/45/17) (£75 + £10 fitting), but unfortunately someone said on here that Camskill aren't selling them anymore

    After having had a set of budget £100 a tyre unheard of brand i have got rid before they were worn out. Wet weather grip was non existant, wheels spun in the wet when accelerating in 3rd!. Now on Toyo T1R all round at £147 fitted etc. each. Very good wet or dry not too noisy but may wear faster. Normally get 20k out of a set. Had Rainsport2 which were very good but wear off quick on inside edges. The original Conti's were the best but with the weak pound are way too much money these days. Tyres are 235x35x19 on snowflakes.
