I’ve just switched to Pilot Sport 4’s from Spirt Contact 6’s and the difference is night and day! The PS4’s are so much better!

Got Asymmetric 2’s on the Minis road wheels & they’re good. Not sure whether the side walls are as robust as the 4S’s though so they may not last long

Alas chopped the 45 in last month for a GLC (needed a bigger car for while dog and 4 people + luggage friendly) still not without the usual Merc issues tho btw :cry:
But had the Goodyear’s on for about 5 months before sold and never stepped out come rain or shine ,can’t really comment on the wear...The 5s are coming in roughly same price as the michil

Am running the Continental Conti Sport tyres that came with the car. Tyres ok at minute but find them noisy so when time comes to change what are others running that they find quieter.

Continental tyres are definitely not suited to the 45, as said the mps4’s are what’s needed without question

Cheers for that Andy. They do seem to be what everyone else are running.
