    michelins premacy range arent performance tyres, they are designed for comfort and longevity

    mytyres.co.uk sell eagle F1's in that size for around 80 quid.

    buy those and put them on the back (the best tyres should always go on the rear.)

    I can get Toyos Proxis T1R on my stock 16`s (which are currently equipped) for 68 quid from local tyre spot, asked em what price for 17s just incase i ever wanted upgrade and quoted 77 quid. But I dont really rate em much, wear pretty quick and the grip is kinda scary at times. Looking at gettin new 17`s and equipping with Michelin Pilot sports, quoted 98 quid per tyre, so thinking of taking up the offer.

    the idea of fitting the best tyres to the rear is that you cant control the rear, especially in a FWD car.

    If you have grippy fronts and **** rears the rear end will let go before the front is even giving you signs of bad things and you'll end up in a hedge

    with the better tyres on the rear the front will give way first and you'll feel it happening and know you can safely ease off the power and correct it without the rear letting go

    Michelin Pilot Sports will be nice sticky tyres but they are pricey. Michelin Premacys are the run of the mill michelin tyre and will also be pricey.

    The police traffic cars round here run Eagle F1's, thats enough of a endorsement for me!

    if you baught michelin pilots they'll probably be very good, premacys however wont be a patch on Eagles, michelin pilots, conti sportcontact3's uniroyal rainsport1's and the like

    Michelin tyres are always pricey and you dont neccesarily get the best value from them.

    as i said i'd be buying the eagles.

    You can get them from mytyres.co.uk for 80quid each and then just get them fitted locally
