goodyear for all round. best grip out of all tyres i've used. the toyos are good, done about 20k miles with different cars with them and not had any problems at all. had them on the fiesta.

toyo's would be cheaper. http://www.mytyres.co.uk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; http://www.blackcircles.co.uk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. check those suppliers who can deliver and get them ordered and fitted at your local tyre place. blackcircles also have fitting places.

or go to your local one and see how much they can do them for, might get a deal!

ive had my toyos for a while now and no excessive wear and good grip in all weathers. teh tr1s i have are quite low profile so road noise is more but who complains about that haha.

my ek has always had a small amount of road noise, especially up here in midlands, back home roads are so much nicer.
its the grip i notice the most, i just need to stiffen up chassis/sus to use all of grip :D

I've had the goodyear eagle f1 and the toyo proxes t1r ( i think) are cheaper and I have read plenty of good reviews about them. So I would go with them cos they are better value for money IMO.
