    I've got Kumho Ecsta KU31s on our A3 Sportback (225/45 R17) and Kumho Solus KH17s (Which? Best Tyre winner, 195/65 R15) on my Bora. Excellent tyres; noticeably quieter than other makes, low rolling resistance and great value. I've been told they have a soft compound (which may mean short life) but a steady 8k on the A3 since they were fitted hasn't brought about any noticeable wear.

    Got both my sets from http://www.blackcircles.co.uk.

    I'm running Nankang NS2's on my Passat, best budget tyres I've had in a long time, they have been pretty good in the wet and the snowy weather we have had also.
     
  11. Thought about Vredestein's - I've got Pilot Sports now - But my A3 had Vreds after Pilots, they're a much better tyre - Award winning also. :icon_thumright:

    Second the Nanakangs. Used to have NS2 sport on both my old polos, and my old man used them on his MG ZTT+. Hold the road pretty well, cheap and Nankang are OEM on Hyundai IIRC

    Now using Linglong L688's (they were what was on the car when I bought it) - cheaper than the Nankangs. Pretty good for the money TBH, not had them let go as yet in wet or dry under regular driving.

    Second on the Vredestein, i went from pirelli pzero rosso to Vredes, saved £50 per tyre, and the Vredes are better in the wet but only slightly worse in the dry.
