    tyre help

    Hi guys just need help choosing some shoes for my car

    tyre size is as follows 195/60/v/15 car is Vauxhall Astra 1.8 16v.

    I don’t know much about tyres I was going to go for the BF Goodrich Profiler² (£57.99 per tyre). Just wanted to know if there are any better tyres, or if someone could recommend me some decent ones.

    I mostly do city miles with some spirited driving. My budget is max £60 per tyre, not too bothered with tyre wear.

    Any suggestions?




    cheers.


    p.s replacing all 4

    The Pirelli P7 would suit you i think.

    etyres are pretty good. they did my bro's car no probs with the service.

    I gotta say I got Michelins on mine and the amount of grip is quite good plus the wears not too bad either. Continental I find are very hard tyres. good grip though and very very good wear rate. Hope that helps a bit mate.

    I've used the BF's - they're a Michelin tyre. I'd recommend them (I used 205/50-16). They lasted well and gripped well.
