Guys,

I currently have Continental Contact Sport 3s on the car and I'm definitely in need of two new front tyres, and will not be far off needing a new rear, so I'm thinking of changing from the Continentals as tbh I'm just finding them far too noisy, I know some of you agree with this, but I can't for the life of me remember a better alternative?

Premium brands only, I don't do budget tyres.

Cheers,

Gareth

Search you will find everything you need :)

Just to throw my 2 cents in though my favourites are Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetrical 2, perfect grip wet or dry.

That one
I've owned five W211's and have experienced Continental, Pirelli, GT Radial, Michelin but the 'best' (quietest with good grip) I've had has been Kumho Ecsta Le Sport.

The Conti's SC were good though.
