    After a very briefsearch on the net Ifound michelin PS3's for £125 each fitted. Search the online tyre sellers such as mytyres and black circles etc as the prices you have been quoted seem way over the top TBH.

    My Gsi has spent most of its life on the PS3's and I happily say they are an excellent tyre.

    EDIT... If you changed all four together I reckon you would notice a huge improvement over the P6000's which have been around since man invented the wheel!

    i think the prices he has written id for the pair, not idividual tyres
    Mr Tickle was very excited about marrying Tess...

    Tess wasn't too sure of her new name

    Falkens are superb, however I've had a few members with turbo engines say they aren't up to the job so they seem better suited to the lower power NA engines.

    I've had 2.5 pairs now but on a measly 1.6 16v

    Camskill can deliver 2 of these in your size for £130.

    Owners manual says it recommends Michelin Primacy tyres. My car had them until I bought AndyM old bus with 4 new Continentals on. The Contis did 15k a set on the front and the Michelins always do at least 30k a set. False economy to buy cheap tyres. The PS3 is the sports tyre, the Primacy is the Grippy but high mileage tyre. Bought 3 new ones just before the VAT increase

    Car has done 145k now and will always have Michelins fitted if I can afford them
    Be Happy
