    Re: new tyres

    thanks guys, I was quoted 278 + fitting for the P7000 which I thought a bit steep, Thats just for the two fronts!
    I managed to find a pair of Goodyear Eagle F1's for 200 so I'll give them a go, They cant be any worse than the Michelin primacy.

    Yeah, but when you drive 700+ miles a week, tread wear becomes a factor [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] (And I might add, I really like my current Conti SC2's, but they're wearing out after only 3 1/2 months [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img])

    Dude, the Eagle F1 are the dbs ([img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile_smoking.gif[/img]) and for 200.00 seem good value for money considering they cost @ 150.00 per tyre new! Just check tread and tyre wall for any damage etc.

    I'd go for the F1's , but have toyos on at the moment.

    Re: new tyres

    After hearing the many comments on Toyo here over the last couple of months i would naturally go for them, but I always talk to my local tyre dealer first to see if he can do any of the other top end tyres at a deal price [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].

    Personal priorities for me are wet handling and wear.
