I need a new set of tyres for the 250.

With my commute a long a very rough concrete road, I'm finding that I'm not getting great mileage out of the PS2's on the car, so I'm looking for something that'll have less wear, and maybe a tad less road noise?

I've got seperate wheels for track use, so these won't be tracked, but will be used for a spirited blast on the weekends.

Currently looking at Eagle F1 Assymetric 2. They seem to tick all the boxes? Anyone got any other suggestions before I go off and order a set?

the ass2 sounds like a good bet but I'm not sure your going to get a massive improvement with any sports tyre just by the nature of the beast :). would i be a better bet going for a lower end tyre to just use for the commute? if you do find a long wearing sports tyre be sure to tell us all first ;)

Ha, well I didn't mean insanely sporty :). I just meant that would offer a decent amount of grip in the wet especially and more mileage than the 7k or so I'm getting from the front PS2's at the moment :)

I know what you mean I was just being daft :). what about the hankook and khmo range tyres may be sporty enough but a little lighter in the wallet so you don't mind 7k?

I'd consider the Hankooks too, but I probably wouldn't try Khumo. I'm looking and the Vredstein Sessansa too. Only £136 fitted per wheel at the moment, and from past experience with them the grip is excellent and the wear is very good too, so these might sway me over the F1s!

Assymetric 2's are amazing! Great wear, performance and progressiveness. Read the reviews on them and I'm sure you'll get yourself a pair!

I had the sessantas on my old edition 30 golf and was happy with them when they were new especially in the wet, but they lost a lot of grip after wearing 2-3mm.

Thanks guys. Very keen on the F1's at the moment. I had a single F1 when a PS2 buldged on a track day. It wasn't great for track use and seemed to blister huge pieces of rubber, but the grip was excellent and it seemed to wear really well (regardless of the chunks coming off it).

That's not too bad really.
I'm keeping the high performance tires for the track though (Which will be PS2's for a while but I may try the CS5 next), these just need to be decent enough for the daily commute and the occassional blast.

I was the same tbh and don't use the car for much other than running round

my 5p`s are fkd at 7k!!
down to legal limit.
I honestly don't think they are too bad but it's got to be my driving style on the road (boring) as everyone else says they wear really fast but like I say I've done just under 5000 miles now with around 250 on track and I'm just above the second wear indicators on mine now.

I am tempted to try the Khumo ku31 next, Khumo tyres are used in a lot of motorsport so they know what they are doing, I was reccommended them when I had my focus st but went with vreds.

Well, ordered the F1 Assymetric 2 in the end instead of the Vredsteins. The vreds wear rather quickly by all accounts, so I'm looking forward to seeing how the F1's perform when I get them fitted on Wednesday/Thursday.

Found a local mobile tyre fitter who will fit 8 tyres (4 x F1's and 4 x PS2's - for the track) for £60, all at my place of work. Brilliant!

Be good to hear your thoughts, currently running the F1 assy 2's and since the weather has improved and i've had a chance to 'drive' they have been superb :)
