The F1's are perfect on my C2 and where on the fiesta and Saxo too, only problem I have had is they are beyond useless in snow.

Eagle F1's are useless when cold and useless in the wet! Can't wait to get some Pilot Exalto's back on.

These are the babies you need!

Ebay Linky

But get them bought and fitted at Costco!

Saying that Fi's just put some Toyo CF1 PRoxies on her 106 and they have made a huge difference.

going for proxes 4s next i think..

T1-Rs, not much good in the wet once theyve worn a bit. although dad reckons they are the bollocks on the ignis.

had good customer feedback for Falken FK-452s

I got toyo t1rs on my fiesta. All brand new Tyres when I put the engine in in the first week of last month and checked them last week and done less than 5000 miles and got 3mm left. Yokohama might be going on next and try them for a bit.

Has anybody tried any Dunlops? :( Looking at Dunlop Sport 9000's as a decent next step, if I don't play is safe and go for the Exalto PE2's.

Remember people, don't scrimp on tyres, not only is it the most important safety aspect of your car but it's always one of, if not THE BEST modifications you can choose for tons of extra performance :)

I like my Sava Eskimo S3 M+S tyres, a truly excellent budget winter tyre.

Amen to that.

I keep telling my dad this and all he says is ' I don't go speeding about like you so don't need them', the irony being he speeds more than me.

on my fiesta, ive run:

155/70/13 original tyres from new :o
185/60/14 Hankooks
165/65/13 Random makes from scrap yard
175/50/13 Yokohama a539's
155/65/13 Random makes from scrap yard

now running 185/60/13 all odd makes from scrap yard :P

Obviously the yokohamas were best for handling but the car scraped on everything and the speedo didnt read right.

this mans got it in one!

people pee me off when they come into work with their type Rs and focus STs and stuff like that and go and put LiNGLONGS on em!
they are like 200bhp for gods sake!

there should be a law that if your car has over a certain amount of power, you have to have better quality tyres. lol

dunlop SP 01s are a good looking tyre.

and the SP sport maxx are very good. havent heard much about sp 9000s though.

try falken FK452s, they are supposed to be brilliant, and will save you money on michelins and dunlops etc..

Well, I need two new front tyres on the Teg, as Mr MOT gave me an advisory on them and I knew they were wearing thin anyway, so I was going to play it safe and take the plunge for some Exalto PE2's.

However! I hear Hankook RS2's are superb and offer a stiffer sidewall (something my car is suited too) so may be opting for these instead :) has anyone tried these before?

They weren't RS2's but I had some form of Hankook Ventus a while back, and I was very impressed with them! Great tyres :D

That's a new name that's getting quite a good reputation fast. Don't know of anyone with any real experience of them though personally.
