Over the years I have changed tyres and wheels on lots of cars for both road and track use. I just didn't seem to be able to get to grips with the 19" Goodyears. It's not that they were bad per se, they were just a bit Even though the damping was fine, the car felt a bit loose at the front at motorway speeds which made it feel "floaty" at times. I couldn't lean on the fronts turning in to a corner as the car tended to start to wash out (understeer) if you pressed it and there was hardly any feel through the steering to help gauge how much grip was available. In the end it was a toss up between Contis and Michelins, so I went for Wow! I've never had a set of tyres alone so completely alter and improve a car. > Steering feel is there now and you can feel how much grip you've got > Turn in is excellent and you can accelerate through a corner using the torque to balance the car for a clean exit on full power > "Floatiness" is a thing of the past. The car feels well planted at all times > The ride is better > Wet grip is excellent > They are quieter on all surfaces In short, I am really, really happy after 3,000 miles. Initially I thought they must have a higher rolling resistance than the Goodyears because I have gone up from averaging 405 w/mile to 420 w/mile. Then I realised, I am at least 10mph faster everywhere because the car feels so much better! I have tried differential front and rear tyre pressures and going up to 45psi all round and I have come to the conclusion that the factory recommended 42 psi cold all round works best (I'm on coil springs) When your Goodyears are shot I can't recommend these too highly. I paid £799.00 for four, fitted.
