    Yeah I don't usually drive it hard and tootle around in 5th most of the time, only have fun if I encounter another hot hatch lol, the conti tyres feel quite hard so might get a few miles out of those too. I couldn't find the Michelin's again so chose the contis

    I had both my front tyres changed to Hankook Ventus Prime 2's when I brought my Corsa E VXR 3 months ago. The original Michelin Pilot Sport tyres looked to have lasted 12k with the 1st previous owner. I've now done 2k with the Hankook's and they've been pretty good all round tyres so far

    How can get such low miles out of a set a Tyres ? I'am coming up to 15k out of my Super Sports and still got around 3.5mm left and that includes quite a few hard drives to Wales, Yorkshire etc..

    I'd cry if only got like 10k out of a set!
