    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif (And I might add, I really like my current Conti SC2's, but they're wearing out after only 3 1/2 months /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif)

    Dude, the Eagle F1 are the dbs (/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile_smoking.gif) 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.

    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif.

    Personal priorities for me are wet handling and wear.

    I saw that pricing in the old evo, where did you find the £79? And are they for 225/25 R17?
