Best for handling in the dry are Michellin Sport cup 2. As used by the JCW challenge.
Can't say they are the best in the wet tho

Pilot Sport 4 came top in just about every category of test in the recent tyre survey in EVO. Will probably be my next choice for the GP.

Where do you guys get yours from?

I got mine from Black Circles, priced matched cheapest I could find on the net, next day delivery and Tesco Clubcard points, win win Smile

I could have got them fitted most places for about £10 a corner but I got the dealer to fit them as they guaranteed any marks made etc then they would repair or replace the wheel which back street tyre places won't always do, cost £15 a corner which is worth paying a bit more imo Very Happy

Is it worth asking the dealer on tyre prices?

They were a lot more for the same ones but you could google a good price and see if they will match or somewhere near.

My front end seems noisey, looked back on mini health check video by dealer 5000 miles ago front tyres had 6mm left on them so surely couldn't of gone down that much since then?! but they are cheapo brand so will go get the whole lot changed to a premium brand fingers crossed will sort the noise out
