Which new tyres should I go for?

Postby Zanic L3 » Wed Jun 27, 2018 10:20 am

The ones on the front need to be replaced, they are worn to the point that they should be replaced soon.

I'm looking for some new tyres which are good quality and price wise. I'm planning a trip to go to the Nurburgring this summer, so hence I need some new front tyres.
I want the tyres to be reliable and grippy but I'm not planning on setting a new FWD record or something ( = I'm not looking at crazy high performance tyres)


The ones on the rear are Minerva EMI Zero UHP, they are still fine obviously they aren't as worn as the ones in the front. I'm not looking to rotate them though as I don't want to risk uncontrollable oversteer.
The ones in the front are some budget Atlas ones (both are from previous owner)

235/40 R18 (Interlagos R18)

Any ideas which tyres I should look into? What do you guys use on the front?
Budget is like max €125

As you can't get Michelin PS4S in your size, the next best option would be Michelin PS4, although they might just be outside your budget.

Other options to consider are Goodyear Asymmetric 3, Continental Contisport 6.

Problem with tyres is that they are a very subjective subject and a lot of it is down to personal expectations and experience.

Falken azenis fk510 are what my Rocco is wearing up front

They deal with its 265 bhp and 380 nm of torque well, i’d Recommend them

Michelin PS4 are superb. I was die hard Goodyear Asymmetric before trying them , but these are on another level. i had 4 fitted at the same time and the car was absolutely stuck to the road.

They do seem to be wearing significantly faster than the goodyears though... :rolleyes:
