What 20" tyres??? - NON runflat

As above. What non runflat 20" tyres are people running?? I bought my wheels new and they came in a package with budget shit. But for the miles i was doing at the time, i didnt invest in premium tyres.

Now the F30s first mot is coming up and im due a set of rear tyres in the next 1000miles. So what tyres are people running?? 255/35/20" for topics sake!!

Mine came with Nankangs, but I'm going to be changing them soon, gonna go for some Falken FK510, they have very good reviews on tyre review.com and are 140 pounds per tyre which is pretty good

Mpss for me. Cheapest was Openeo delivered to the door then fitted locally.

Heard the new pilot sport 4's are even better but not sure if they're available in 20's yet.

If you want cheaper I've heard good things about the hankooks.

If you want cheaper still, may I suggest a cheaper car

PS4S are probably the best all round tyres available.

Yeah the MPSS4s are 213 a tyre.

And so far the best bang for buck i have priced since this thread, is Continental SportContact 6 at 180 per tyre. Dont see how the michelins would be worth near 35 a tyre more than the Contis?? Like are they actually that much better, to ask that much more?? And its a daily diesel for mixed driving. Not spirited.

Edit - what about the Pirelli PZeros or the Goodyear Eagle f1 Assy3??

Wear rates on the Contis is meant to be horrendous, so the Michelins will work out much cheaper per mile:

I'd go with MPS4s currently but have MPSS stock from the factory. Most seem to say the M have improved then but have also stated to increase the overall tyre life. Sounds like a win/win to me, not driven the new ones but for quality they'd be a grey option.

More budget focussed (is that eve. Right to say on 20s ) maybe a TOYO sport tyre.

Going non RFT is a great move all round however. Lovely feel to the car once changed.

Michelin website: http://m.michelin.co.uk/tyres/michel...sport-4-s/full

They were external tests carried out by TUV SUD & Dekra though

How about Goodyear Eagle F1 Assymetric 2's, an excellent tyre with good wear rates for just 156 delivered:

I'll likely go PS4, but up the tyre size to 265's or 275's on the rears and 235's or 245's on the front.

This car is so under-tyred.

I wouldn't recommend PS4, mine are wearing really quickly!
