Which tyres?

Hi all,currently have Kumho's all round and have been happy with them(they we're on the car when we bought it and have done 10,000 miles and still have 4mm all round left),good grip in wet and dry and minimal road noise,question is,what are your favourite tyres for r170's and why?

Light blue touch paper and stand back........................

I love 'what tyre is best' threads. So many tyres, most pretty decent these days, and such a personal thing as to which you prefer... you could get 10 answers, and 10 different tyres.

If you like the kumho's I would say stick with them, I have never used them but they have a pretty good 'mid range tyre' reputation.

Personally I'm a big fan of goodyear eagles, reasonable price, good grip and wear in all conditions, with the bonus of rim protection...

^^^^What he said^^^^

Ive used Khumos for quite a few years now, I reckon they're the Aldi of the tyre world.
Not the best, but good enough for everyday use, very good value for money
