    what tyre

    im in need of tyres soon, im currently using yokohama parada spec 2 at the moment, handling is ok but they dont seem to last long.

    im after decent handling tryes in winter and summer and some that last longer than the yoko's

    ideas please?

    no real budget.

    i used to run kumho esacta's ku31 on my old mg zs and tbh they were very good, are they any good on the astra? i also want something that is quiet and has good grip level under acceleration as my current tyres spin all the way up to about 55mph.

    Falken 912's - really noisy. Really dissapointed with mine after i got them from recommendations on here. But you live and learn.

    chears guys, any other opinions?

    when you say quiet are they quieter than yoko parada spec 2? as i find the road noise quite loud, but i do run the fronts at 35psi which doesnt help
