    Just bout 4 today. Pirelli P Zero 255/35/ZR 20 Y speed rating. Not cheep. Quotes between £1000 - £1300 for all 4 corners. You do get what you pay for though. How many miles has yours covered. Mine had only done no more than 4K?

      Mine came with Continental on the front and (don't laugh) Triangle on the rear....

      My Grandad owned a tyre company so I have always been a tyre snob....But!

      I only have 3 weeks experience with the car but cannot fault either short term. I have always liked Conti. Triangle were put on by the dealer and are only £60 odd quid a corner!!!!

      I could well be missing out... but at £60 each I am not sure how much of a no brainer it is!? lol

          Cant say tbh, they were on when i bought the car last month. But ready up the longest they last is £7000. Thats alot of money for the distance.

              Even considering putting £60 tyres on a near two ton 155mph car means you're either a skinflint or extremely dim, or both.

                I personally wouldn't use them but unless he's going on a track then the 155mph part is pretty pointless anyway. If they handle badly at say 80 then yeah defo avoid lol
                Some say its merely a footnote. Others say its just a comment. I know it better as THE SIG!!!

                  Neither, Thanks.

                  As a daily driver and using a tyre which is approved as safe to use then why not? IF I was going to be driving it hard and/or track day use then I might suggest it would be silly, however, if they work (they do) then why not sacrifice a set of cheap tyres for a laugh.....

                    Hi Guys

                    Ive just fitted a full set of Nokian Zlines, done around 400 miles on them now, grip seems good, as good as the pzeros in the dry and much better in the wet, cant comment on the wear rate as yet, but paid £135 excluding fitting for the 20"

                    Thanks

                          Considering most people only write 'Bad' reviews I though it was quite a good bunch of reviews - some quite positive!

                          I am not saying they are great tyres, but based on my time with them I cannot complain. At the price they are a great alternative and may even help bring down the cost of the premium tyres if we all used them more, perhaps for a few track day sessions!!

                          I have driven on them and thrown it round a few corners at speed (on private property) and cannot find serious fault, they are not unpleasantly noisy but then I have not tried a premium alternative. Front is Conti but I don't hear noises from the back suggesting any drastic difference....
