I've had a problem with my front tyres for a while now, they always slip when I drive in the rain. Small skids if I go around a roundabout a bit hard etc. I never really thought much about it, just thought slow down. Yesterday at 4am I was thrashing it after leaving the library and the road was a little wet but nothing major seeing it rained at midnight roughly - anyway the tyres started losing traction and skidding again whenever I did sharp turns and the like. Got home and looked through all the receipts and found out that the fronts costs £35 incl VAT each, I also searched for them on Tyrereview which just confirmed my beliefs. Event GL699 | the Event GL699 reviewed and rated - TyreReviews Anyway I've got to change them because its a pretty big risk if the road surface is wet and I'm feeling spirited. Budget is around £70 per tyre but I can go for a bit more if its a must. My top priority is grip in all conditions and hence reduced braking distance. I don't care about MPG, wear levels, road noise (anything will be better than those budget tyres) etc. Choices I have at the moment are: Yokohama - bluEarth or C drive Dunlop - Sport Bluresponse or SP Sport FastResponse Goodyear - Efficientgrip or efficientgrip performance or eagle NCT5 Continental + Pirelli too, so many versions of those What would you guys go for? Thanks for reading.
