    Last time I bought tyres was 2004

    World has changed a lot since then (and somehow I think to the worse)..

    Please help with information - who builds best summer tyres these days?

    Forum discussions/reviews etc.

    I have just put a couple of Maxxis tyres on my car, apparently an Chinese brand and currently being advertised heavily over here. Too early to say yet, only done a couple of hundred miles with them.

    I'd highly recommend Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta's or Vorti's.

    Excellent in all weather and relatively cheap too imo.

    I've just fitted the asymmetric 2's to my car, haven't driven it in real anger since fitting yet though, but seem good so far:thumb:

    If you want a summer tyre with good performance, quality and cost, I would always recommend Uniroyal. I've has Rain Experts, Rainsport 2s and have just bought Rainsport 3s for my Z3 - always been pleased with all round performance but wet performance is especially good.
