    Talk to Neil.P1, I'm sure he could sort you with tyres either before your service or loose so you can give them to your workshop to fit during the service!

    if you dont mind a wee trip to maghera, give richard at maghera tyre center a call on 02879643336

    tell him darren with the black subaru sent you, he will look after you really well.

    How much do you want to spend? My recommendation are goodyear eagle f1's, after trying many others they to me are the best available and arent to bad a price..

    I'm sorry but I don't have Neil's mobile. I geneally rely on meeting him at the seacat
    ask brocks, andymac, & plenty of others when they're on-line! or send him a pm.

    Goodyear F1's as Darren says...not the cheapest but a brilliant all round (no pun) option IMHO
    Revo Stage 4+............That means 425bhp and 450lb/ft....which obviously means loadsa wheelspin, no grip and destroying front tyres, whilst grinning..a LOT!!

    I've got Vredestien Sessantas on. The review they got in EVO mag was really good and thats why i put them on. We were that happy with them on the scooby that i put them on the 207 van, and the wee bro's 306 dturbo. Saved us on a couple of occasions.

    A wee back street mechanic my dad uses SWEARS by Vredestien, and coaxed me up and down to try the Sessantas wen i was looking for new tyres on the evo, i wen for Goodyear F1's in the end , but your not the first person i have heard praising these, may well try them in the future

    Vredesteins mate, Just about to order some for mine, they say they are superior to the F1,s.

    Go for the Sessantas not the basic ones.

    Hankook Z212's for all round use are very good, Also anything from Bridgestone.. Wouldn't bother with Dunlop, Kuhmo, etc.

    Michelin's are also very good as are Pirelli's however you pay through the nose for them and are no better than Hankook, Bridgestone, Goodyear
