    As long as your exes' tyres are only rated up to 185 mph, that should work out fine.

    I would consider Continental ContiSportContact 5 SUVs. Let me know the car and I'll make a recomendation.

    How do you like the Michelins? I find that they not great when braking in the wet, particuarly in a turn, otherwise they are quite good, if expensive.

    I've not even done 100 miles in it yet, so it's hard to comment on the tyres. Stelvio Milano petrol. Weight 1660kg with fluids.

    I have the Continental Winter Contact TS830P with 255/40 R18 99V and find them not too bad although on the Alpina I had Michelins which I will admit were better and lasted much longer. You are correct, the Continentals do tend to wear out quicker
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I think it is probably best to wait - you have not even worn off the coating and until it warms up they are going to be as hard as hell.

    Oh balls, we were taklng about winter tires when we were putting slicks on everything yesterday.

    Talked to a couple of the guys but haven't checked myself as it's a completley new beast to me- they have said

    Continental ts850ps

    or

    Michelin Alpine la2s
