    I love my car a lot, but i'm not so OTT that i'll shell out a whack on a new set of black circles.

    I'm looking to replace my set with a fairly cheap tyre (but not budget rubbish clearly) and have narrowed down to the Kumho 712 Ecsta.

    Bizzarly though i've seen this tyre for £80 per tyre, to £105 for a pair.......

    Anyone got a set of these?

    Crikey, £65.50 is a flippin bargain!
    Is there such a thing as a 'bad' tyre these days?
    I'm not so sure.
    Just 'differences'.
    Not like 20 years ago, when a **** tyre really was shocking.

    I'd go with Falkens over the other two. Had them on my previous car, and they were great. M3 drivers love them as well.
