    I've just bought some new rims and want to know which are the best tyres to go for and roughly what they cost ? Cheers...

    Good Year Eagle F1's - Try Camskills.co.uk. Not sure the price depends on your size of rims but should be decdently priced.

    If you do a lot of driving in poor conditions (i.e; live in Scotland) then Uniroyal RainSport 2s are very hard to fault. Heard they're great in the dry too.
    Roughly £120 each for 18s I think.

    These are great tyres, had them as standard on my Clio182 and they were probably the best tyres i've had on a car.

    Pzero rossos, good grip in wet and dry and wear well and don't cost a fortune. Sure I seen 1 of the major national tyre fitters doing a good offer on them. Like kwikfit or some1

    Running Pirellis Rosso's on mine.

    No complaints so far and been running them for 6 months. Think I paid £104 each from blackcircles.com

    I paid £109 per tyre Inc vat...

    That was fitted, balanced and new valves...so not to bad really.

    Some of the other top brands were between £115-125 + vat.

    For the record I had reps on before, I picked one up when off the car with the tyre still on and they are stupidly heavy...
