    I've not found recent Michelins lasting any longer than other topline tyres - they used to last longer but not now.

    I use Goodyear Excellence for quietness, smooth-riding and economy but they're not to everyone's taste.

    Hi mate, I use goodear F1's which are an amazing tyre! I ordered mine from www.mytires.co.uk and it cam in at £300 for all four. I did have toyo T1R's before hand but they are nowhere near as good as the Goodyears.

    Ive got Toyo T1-R... pretty good tyre, they have a slightly softer compound so wear a little quicker than most but the grip like shit on a blanket!!!

    I paid £75 per corner from ATS but im sure I could have got them a little cheaper! Will be trying Goodyear F1s next time.
