    I have tried Avon, dunlop SP9000, and good year eagle F1s. I currently have the goodyear F1s on all four corners and i think there fantastic. Good grip, durable, look the part, and a decent price.

    Try: mytryes.co.uk or blackcircles.com/uk

    I have found there the cheapest sites for tyres

    Plus the Kendas are £66, the goodyear eagle F1 GS-D3 are £113 each.

    The Kendas probably are a really **** budget tyre.

    Eagle F1's from me aswell, Idd much rather spend a few more quid than end up in a hedge and/or dead.

    Its the only thing keeping you on the road, your right turboDave. I would rather splash out that extra few quid aswell.

    ive found camskill.co.uk to be really cheap, they sell goodyear asymmetrics at £105 a corner, i discussed with my local tyre place and told them i could get at £95 a corner and they did the maths and said, yeah we'll fit and supply for £105.... saved me £40 overall haha - they are that used to be underpriced they will most likely match for you

    I used to work in the tyre industry and to be fair the Kenda's arent too bad. They use old patterns from more prestige brands (as do a lot of other 'budget brands'.)

    Goodyear Eagle F1s are a good tyre though if you can take the extra hit in the wallet. Avons are also a good choice if you dont have deep pockets.

    There 8.5 at rear and 8 at front, Yea there a little streched perfect if you ask me. I love the dub scene and strech tyres look great IMO. Would you say the Falken FK452 is a good tyre?

    had these for a few of months now and impressed. just over 75 quid each fitted, great in dry and had no problems in the wet. (i don't push the car that hard in these conditions though) may be a little more road noise than kuhmos they replaced, but with the stereo on who'd notice!
    seem to wearing well 2,000k covered.

    Most people do a tyre upgrade which would be well worth doing.
