    The good old tyre debate

    Hi all,
    Just had a couple of Yoko A593's fitted to the front of my 1.8Sxi, and I have to say I am a little dissapointed with them. Was going to get goodyear F1's, but as I do about 30K miles a year, thought I would try something that 'should' last a bit longer.

    Do yoko's have a running in period to get rid of some slippery coating or something? The grip is not a good as the original P6000's I had on there, which to there credit did 22K before becoming racing slicks.

    Anyone else found this with Yoko's?

    It sounds like the tyres you need are Pirelli PZero Neros. Good grip and great for higher mileage. I've tried quite a few brands now and have settled on Pirelli for good.

    Yokos will last less time than the F1s - which were IMHO terrible.

    Feel free to post your thoughts on your tyres at:

    That goes for everyone, I need reviews people!

    The bloke I get my tyres off said the Goodyear Hydragrip tyres give excellent grip, and he's got a mate who taxis in a Mondeo, and has got 30k no problem out of the two fronts. He recommends them to everyone who would tend to drive quickly. Shame they don't do the Hydragrip in the size on my motor.
