    TYRES: Pirelli, Continetal Toyo or Falken

    So I need a couple of front tyres. 215/40/18. I currently have some Falkens on the front, Yokos on the back. The Falkens have actually faired pretty well, a little noisy perhaps but reasonable grip. Before that i had Pirelli PZero Nero which I loved. I have never tried Toyo's or Continentals at all.

    So my shortlist is:

    Continental Contact 2 - Ł150 each

    Pirelli PZero Nero - Ł145 each

    Toyo Proxes T1 Sport - Ł125 each

    Falken 452 - Ł78 each

    Any advice or first hand reviews?

    I was a more than a little sceptical when I bought the Falkens that are about to be changed. But actually really pretty good. Unfortunately I had them put on when the wheels were on another car which i then sold along with all its history obviously so I dont know what mileage they have done.

    I've just baught a set of the Goodyears (make sure you get the Assym2's if you get them though, not the original Assymetric) from camskill, they were just under Ł100 each, although thats for 225/45r17

    Will be fitting them some time this week.

    My brother just baught a pair of the Hankooks for his S4 in 225/40r18, they were also ~Ł100, again from camskill.

    I have looked at Camskill, Mytyres and BlackCircles and that where I came up with my shortlist. Will just get a pair sent to work and then drive about and get them fitted for cash.

    I always go for Falkens, just had a set of 452's fitted to my new wheels and so far so good. Always avoid Conti's like the plague, had 2 blowouts in 6 months on a set of them!!
