I need some (non-Honda) advice from you all today/tomorrow. I know there are lots of threads about tyres, but this one is quite specific. My MINI needs four new tyres, as the originals are now 12 years old and need replacing on safety grounds if not on remaining tread. I have the MOT on Thursday so will get this done before. I have a limited choice as I want to retain run flats, and the size/load rating is specific to the optional wheels I had when the car was new. MINI have advised I stick with the exact specification, although they say I could go to an 88 load rating if necessary. I also want rim protection, I don't want to spend a fortune as the car only does c1000 miles a year, but I do want a known brand. Size is 205/45 R17 84V. I'm going to be using Blackcircles. The brand options are Hankook Ventus S1 Evo @£97 per tyre, Yokohama Advan Sport V103s @£108 per tyre (though no rim protection), Dunlop SP Sport 01 @ £106 per tyre and Goodyear Eagle RS-A @£114 per tyre. If it was you, based on brand (the online reviews all seem fine), which would you go for?
