    Question Tyres on a s3

    I have 2 continental conti sport 3 on the back and 2 BCT s800 on the front (never heard of them, anyone know if there any good?)

    im quite biased to have Michelin pilot sports ps3 or 2 but is there a really good tyre for cheaper? Need it for super traction on top of the 4wd!

    cheers you lot!

    BCT's beijing's finest ditchfinders, get rid of them asap haha.

    You get what you pay for with tyres, it's worth shopping around to see what the price of Conti 5's or Goodyear F1 Asymmetric are compared the Michelins. Some on here swear by the newer Michelin Super Sports, they won't be cheap but they'll give you a ton of grip

    I went out in aks 's 400bhp vrs in the cold and was very surprised with how well the pilot super sports coped. A lot better than my eagle f1as2's. I've got midrange Tyres that came with the car and I'll probably wait till the right load rating Pilot super sports arrive should be in January at some point

    Supersports were cheaper than PS2's at camskill when I bought mine - also got a £50 fuel voucher thrown in by Michelin.

    PS3's are the Exalto replacement.
    PSS's are the PS2 replacement i'm lead to believe.

    I know the 3's are not as good from personal experience.

    I have heard great things about Dunlop BluResponse. They're also pretty cheap. ;-)
