    EDIT, beat me


    althought bear in mind that youll have to pay a garage to change the tyre, dispose of the old one, valves and balancing. it will prob turn out cheaper to just buy the tyres from the actual garage as they general quote you an all-in price
    Any info on V6 MK4 conversions greatly appreciated!

    Don't do it. Anything but P6000!

    Of course, you can spend too much on a 10 year old design tyre that's outright unpredicatable in the wet if you like.

    I replaced my last 2 P6000s with a pair of Goodyear Excellence - far better grip both in wet and dry, less tramlining, have a decent rim protector on them, are quieter too. Came in a fiver less per tyre than the Pirellis.

    The Goodyear NCT5 is a nice long wearing tyre with similar grip levels in the dry to the P6000, slightly better in the wet as they're predictable.

    I'm quite liked the Bridgestone RE720 I had on at one point, though they were more expensive than the Goodyears.
