Replacement Tyre choice?

Post by RPJ » Wed Sep 18, 2019 7:52 am

I've had my Pulsar (1.2 Petrol) for nearly 5 years and I'm due to change both front tyres shortly. Since I've had the car I've always stuck with Continental. My car has the bigger alloys (205/50 R17V 89) which came fitted by the dealer and the Continentals have been averaging around 12,000 miles on the front before being replaced. I have the Continental ContiSport Contact 5 tyres fitted. I'm thinking of going like for like again but would anyone suggest changing and what brand/tyre would you go for? I did see a suitable Goodyear tyre advertised on Black Circles which had good reviews and it was a lot cheaper too.
Your advice and guidance would be appreciated.

Bridgestone T005 was my best tyre, excellent on wet. A little bit on the expensive side but worth it and last longer than the Conti.

I have Nokian WR A4 (R16) winter tyres. Very good grip, very decent wear.
