what is everyone running tyre wise?

are "wearwell" any good, or nankang, I prefer the traditional look of the wearwell, but is it a great big lie, and going to wear out in a year?

I know michelin's last for years, but they're three times the price!

The wearwell are actually built on a Michelin machine with a Nakang tire structure.

also the compound of the rubber is important!

quality doesn't come at a low price!
I don't have experience with Wearwell, have driven TOYO's for years in my opinion good price qualitiy ratio, no excessive wear, good grip (also in wet / snowy conditions) just not the looks..

but stull; nothing beats Michelin! (loos and quality)

Is "Nakang tire structure" good or bad news?

Don't know the shop, but Michelins are (probably) the best tyres one can get for an A-type.

they specialise in classic stuff thats hard to get and remakeing rubber thats long been un avalable, i saw that a lot of people are using smart tyers but i dont like the square profile and i think they look too modern :/

well a year or so on!
the wearwells didn't Shocked they wore terribly!
they still have tread in the centre, but the outer edges are scarily bald!
It's going to show the thread any minuite !!
to give them their due, they're still like new on the rear!
and they do hold the road! (I like to hear first time passengers scream Rolling Eyes)
so I'm back in the market for a pair of front tyres!
I have a pair of really old michelins! I'm thinking of sticking them on to see if they're worth the extra money!
