Have them on the Trolley and on previous cars. Perform well enough rain or shine :y

The other option I could recommend is for Accelera Winters, but the Dunlops will certainly see you right  :y

Just ordered two of these for fitting tomorrow ...   :)

https://www.asdatyres.co.uk/michelin/pilot-sport-4/235-45-17-97-y-xl-pilot-sport-4

Best price I could find, beats the local places by around 10-14 per tyre, but is fitted locally at a place who wanted 114 for each one.... so how does that work ??

Asda Tyres aka Walmart have much better buying clout than Joe Local...

Local garages presumably sign up for quick easy work and then customer contact to enable upselling of their broader services ;)

All fitted and a further 20 off by way of a pre-paid visa card direct from michelin ...  so 187 for 2 tyres fully fitted ... :)

You wont be disappointed by performance, I'm sure.

My local chap does seem to be able to undercut everywhere, but the flipside is if the young lad does it, I'll break my bar retorqueing them.

True, but I have enough confidence in their abilities that had my Desmond been a spring purchase I would have fitted them. :y it wasn't so got Accelera winters instead, which suited the 5 series that it replaced.  ;)

Well used to these now .. been using them since I could no longer get eagle F1's ... they were your recommendation some while back ..  14000 miles for the rears, fronts still have a reasonable amount of life left in them.

Rainsport 3 used on the daily, decent tyre Imho (worked well in the 2 months of snow in Scotland last winter when I was working there even though it is a rain tyre!) but not an out and out sports orientated tyre.

Anything that costs more than 50 will do you, Webby.

That's for a tyre not the whole car.  ;D
