    Decent Tyres

    Hi All. Its probably been covered thousands of times but im really not sure to go for. I have the 18" Penta alloys and they all need replacing. Can anyone please recommend a tyre that last and have good grip in both dry and more specifically wet. id say my drive style is probably casual (grandad like) long distance cruising really with the occasional spank on back roads.

    Can someone Please please tell me the correct tyre pressures for these wheels, the manual is ridiculously too technical for me.

    Thanks all

    My old SRI I used Bridgestone RE050. Not a bad tyre but found that the wear was quick.

    My new SRI has Dunlop and comparing with the old tyres i have found that these hold the road a bit better than the Bridgestone. Can't comment on wear as i just had the new SRI for a few days.

    Damo Sri. Depending what model car you have you want 34psi in the front if its a petrol or 36psi if its a diesel in the front and 30psi in the rears. As you also do long distance journeys you will benefit from premium tyres such as Dunlop or Conti.

    Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetricals for me.

    Virtually no tyre noise, good grip (wet or dry) and seem to be hard wearing.
