My front tyres are ready to be replaced. What are the best tyres for grip/longlife compromise that you have bought?

It`s a personal choice I think.I have Avons on mine & I`m well pleased with them.I know some members have NCT`s (my second choice) and are happy with them.Not sure about Pirelli but I have heard they give good grip but are prone to road noise.

Hi I'm new on here, so thought I do my 1st post here as I've just put some new boots on our C-Max.

I've replaced the Continental Sport Contact 2 with some TOYO PROXES T1-R 205/50/R17Y (93) Reinforced Cost me 233 fitted for 2. Bought from BlackCircles and fitted at a local STSTyre Proscentre.

So fare they are a tad quieter, but have allot more grip in both Dry and Wet conditions. Also cheaper as well, the Continentals where 145 per corner, Toyos only 103

I also had the Laser Geometry checked and adjusted.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for all the feedback. Anyone used Barum Bravuris? They seem to come out well in tests.
