    Tyre wear - 2.0Tdi 190

    From my experience the hankooks are very poor, I found the wet grip really really bad! Managed to scrub them off in just over 8k, then had them replaced with Michelin polo sport 3s which have lasted around 17k, so a lot better and the grip is better all round, quite disappointing that it's in...

    Tyres

    190 tdi sline 18 wheels, just had the Hankooks changed on the front today, 10500 miles and only 2mm left, absolutely shocking in the wet, just changed for Michelin pilot sport 3 so fingers crossed will last longer than 10k with better grip! The rears are also down to less than 4mm already!?
