    Default New Tyres........

    The other day I bit the bullet and went and got 2 new tyres fitted to the Signum.
    Chose Continental Sport Contact 3's in 225/45 R17.

    What a difference to the roadholding they have made, in a couple of months, the NCT 5's on the front will be getting replaced with the same tyres to balance the handling out, the back grips like its on rails now, shame the fronts let it down a bit.

    Lets see what mileage I can get out of them when I get some front ones, the NCT 5's have given 32k miles on the rear and have recently been put on the front, and they are now wearing fast and approaching 3mm tread. I'll replace them at 2.5 mm.

    0.5mm on the front is between 1000 and 1500 miles
