    I'd avoid the Falken and Nankang - the rest are reasonably good. The P-Zero is most likely the best tyre of the lot, certainly better than the Yoko that it shares it's price with.

    Yeah but Toyos don't wear for sh*t. No good paying £92 for a tyre that last less than 10K.

    Best tyre there IMO is the Pirelli.
    52 Astra G 1.8, 18" Mille Miglia alloys, 325mm Brembo 4 pot conversion, Coupe leather interior, Raid strut brace, Whiteline rear ARB, Irmscher bits (skirts, Carbon steering wheel, Bonnet extension, M3 mirrors, boot & roof spoiler), Reiger Rear Diffuser & Front Bumper, Koni Adj. dampers, 35/30 Vogtland springs, Duplex quad exit ASCAR stainless exhaust.

    Black and round is a start lol
    I use nankangs as they are ideal for me and with the amound of tyres I go thourgh a expensive brand would cripple me, I never a have tyre last it course as its puncture or damged some way.
    When I had my 17"s I use pirelli p zeros and were a excellent tyre. the michalin I used were hopeless
