I run all-weather tyres on mine as I use it all year. They handle very well in wet and ice. It is virtually impossible in the south east to get to use a car to it's full performance capability so there is no need need for ultra performance tyres

Ok had the tyres fitted this morning, it makes so much difference. The car feels a lot more comfortable and smoother riding. I haven't been far in it yet, only a short distance from the fitters, but I can honestly say I'm happy again :D I also had the geometry checked (FOC) but it badly needed some adjustment which was another £144 :headbang: When asked why is was out on all wheels the answer was pot holes and Run Flats are not good bed fellows. Oh well, £100 back from Michelin for buying a full set so not too bad after all. :thumbsup:
