    All on limits, can only really afford 2 (don't get paid for a couple of weeks) but the driver rear has a puncture. What do you reckon.

    ...Either that or buy two decent ones for the front now; have the puncture repaired (only costs a few quid) and put that and the spare on the back until pay day and then get two more decent ones...

    Regards,

    Sod it, went and got 4 in one hit Like you say not worth the cost if I skimp on my rubber!

    Still in the end I went for the new Vredestein Ulrac Sessanta Tyres after debating whether to go for the Conti3 again or try the new Goodyear Assemetric; price was £328 inc VAT for 4 fitted. So reasonable enough.

    These babies did well in the recent Evo tyre test so why not, they look good as well but seem to flavour a very unique tread:

    Well see how we get on and how long they last!!
