..I can , as currently on my car (2nd set ) and really like them

done 10k miles on them so far and thread is still pretty good, although I would say they are past the half-life period, not sure if I can do another 10k.

but performance - wise, love them!
I second the Goodyear E-grips. Nice and quiet on the motorway and seem to be lasting well so far, although I'm not one for throwing the car into corners or driving hard so no idea how they are on the performance front

It depends what you want out of a tyre.

I had Michelin Pilot Sport4s on 17 inch Orpheus alloys and did swap them for 18 inch Eudora alloys yesterday. I went for Michelin Pilot Sport 4s.

That said, when I looked at the wear on the 17s I have done 7,000 miles in Gloria and the fronts were down to 4mm. The rear tyres are 7mm. She is chucking out over 360BHP but the wear was shocking. Even worse a new tyre has a nail and a screw in it.

And I cannot find how to sell 4 Orpheus alloys with Michelin PS4s on this do I do a new 'Sales' thread?

Always use Asda Tyres, never found them cheaper elsewhere and I always fit top brand tyres, because my life and those of my passengers rely on them...

Good to know, I haven't used them yet as have only just found them online and compared prices, always used a local tyre fitters but the service has gone downhill so decided to look elsewhere. Thanks for feedback.
