    Which is cheapest? All those are good tyres, so it's really up to price.

    Hi Motley,
    This may or may not help you! I recently changed from 16" to 17" and I ended up going for Avon ZZ3s and I don't regret it at all. I had Sport 9000s on the 16" and they were good, I had T1Rs on a Westfield and they were good too. I don't personally have any experience of the Falkens!
    So far I have found the ZZ3s to be excellent in wet and dry and they are surprisingly quiet too. The handling is really good, but that is probably mostly down to the suspension on the car!
    www.camskill.co.uk will do them for 63ea (can't find the damn pound sign on this keyboard!) delivered to your door. You just need to find a place that will fit them for you and you should be able to get that for 10ea.

    Hope that helps, Shaylo.

    Get Toyo Proxos T1-R , they stick like mad, and don't cost the earth either.

    Also price Bridgestone Potenza RE050, and Michelin Pilot Exalto 2 - both excellent tyres, though probably a quite a bit dearer than the Toyo or Falken.
