Haven't seen this discussion for a while and seeing as how I am about to spend a small fortune on new rubber thought I'd bring it up again! So, I need 245/45 18 x 2 and 265/35 18 x 2. My local shop Merityres has a good website with all the new labelling (which incidentally I personally think should include longevity). Hankook tyres are the cheapest @ £164 and seem to have the best ratings. But do they last? Then they seem to go up in £10 increments: Dunlop, Continental, Pirelli, Michelin @ £201. So now completely confused. I've heard Michelins give the longest life so possibly worth the extra? Continental are "reccomended" fit. Currently running Pirelli Rossos with about 2mm left! I guess I'm saying what would you choose?????
