National are also doing a Lifetime Guarantee on all Bridgestone tyres at the moment and they have the Potenza Sport in 225/40 18 and 255/35 18. The guarantee covers all puncture repairs and other damage causing replacement until the tyre is below 1.6mm.


Cheers, Paul

... worth bearing in mind that the factory's opinion can change from month to month, depending on which tyre manufacturer is offering the best deal: that's what my dealer reckoned!

also, I suspect that our Aeros are that much lighter than the majority of cars that the results of published tyre comparison tests run on 4 door saloons weighing 50-100% more than the Aero should be taken with a pinch of salt.

That's a good point Will, in the same way that the cynics amongst may sometimes feel the "Tire tests" may deliver some unexpected results based upon the amount of sponsorship or hospitality being provided at the tests. That's why I've been particularly interested in the experiences by everyone on TM. As I've only had the Aero for a few months and inherited it with some 7 year old Avon ZV5 tyres (good tread depth left and they've not gone at all hard yet) which seem to have pretty good grip and feedback, I'm keen to see what others are recommending before replacing them with another set of Avons - now ZV7.


Cheers, Paul

If you haven't tried the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 or 4s, then do - you won't go back after, trust me.

Kwik Fit has an offer on the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 at the moment with 10% discount and a hotel stay voucher, so I've booked for Thursday for new tyres all round on my spare wheels.

Hope so - £403 all in for tyres, fitting balancing and 4no TPMS Service Kits - whatever they are.....perhaps new batteries? Any £100 a corner for Pilot Sport 4 is pretty good I think. Let's hope the hotel stay is somewhere I fancy otherwise it'll become an auction prize at my daughter's school fund raiser!

That is a pretty good price for MPS4 and they will be excellent on the Aero.
Play with the pressures but I tend to be 25psi all around in most driving.


Just time to rent a thimble more petrol before dinner.
