    Am also interested in this, heard some comments re micheline pilot exaltos but not positive :?

    I wouldn't mind paying more if the tyre was hard wearing, also anyone seen/used this?

    On any threads we've had concerning tyres, the word was Michelin were sh1t. Goodyear seems to be the one to go for.

    Personally, I'm very happy with the Pirelli P6000 on my motor.

    Avon ZZ3, I paid £75 a corner locally fitted. Quiet too.

    Much more grip than Michelin or Conti Sport Contacts. Michelin and Pirelli are harder wearing, but offer less wet weather grip. I also looked at Uniroyal Rainsport.

    Been very impressed with the Avons though. And they look nice.

    If you want wet drip, then Michelin is the last thing you want.

    re: 205 / 50 R16 tyres

    Just changed mine for bridgestone potenzas, personally i wouldn't put anything on other than goodyear or bridgestone.
    Michelin last a while but arent anything special.
    Pirelli are how can i say absolute s***e about time they invested in some new designs
    Yoko & toyo are quite good for grip but dont last long.
    At the moment according to the tests the bridgestones are the best for grip tho.
    My only advice is dont use cheap tyres!

    ZZ3`s are an excellent tyre mate

    I had ZZ1`s on my Veccy and they were really good
