    Personal choice (across several cars) for grip are continental. Always found them to be seriously grippy tyres in the wet and dry. Just don't expect them to last long though.
    Speed cameras and traffic wardens are a bad idea!

    Conti and UK weather just isnt a valid mix, you seriously need to try a better tyre for the Vixer ie Dunlop RTs

    However if you lived on the continent its a completely difference story.....

    No better tyre imo. The only downside is the mega bucks that they cost for the time they last.

    I had Contis on my H when I bought it new. They were rubbish and I changed to the Dunlop Sport Maxx RTs, which I'd had on my old SRI 200. It became a totally different car in the dry and the wet. On the J, I had P Zeros from new and they were crap too. I changed to the Dunlop Sport Maxx RTs before the Pirellis were half worn and that transformed the handling. Traction control was always cutting in. Now it hardly ever does because the tyres grip so well.

    I am running Vredestein Ultrac Vorti. The best tire I have ever tried. Quiet and sticks to the road in the wet and dry. And maybe best sidewall design.

    I have been in the wheels and tire business for many years and had a lot of different tires.

    Vredesteins in general are really underrated

    They are the only tyres I will ever buy as they are amazing value for money and the grip is sensational

    Default Tyres to increase grip on the wet?

    The understeer is on roundabouts and there is no throttle applied just steering angle, lsd works great in the dry under acceleration but the best lsd in the world can't compensate for horrific tyres 😉. Totally agree on the p zeros (although still better than the oil slicks I'm running now!) think I'll just have the bite the bullet and pick one, leaning towards the dunlops I think!

    Or maybe some extra driving lessons Try Hankook 107, best allround tires from my experience.
