Recommend good tyres?

    Need new tyres for my golf and I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend a good brand and type?

    Looking for sound reduction and grip primarily - size is 205/55 R16.

    Something like a Bridgestone Turanza T001 would fit the bill nicely. Top quality tyre and should be available for around €95 per tyre fitted and balanced.

    Dunlop SP Sport Fast Response is an excellent tyre too:

    I have them on my Legacy and next time will be getting the same.

    How much were the Dunlops?

    I think I paid about 95 euros fitted per one.

    +1 on the Bridgestone turanzas they are a great tyre for the money.

    Got Hankooks in that size fitted to my dad's Auris a few months back. Paid €75 fitted and balanced per corner, locally. They are an excellent tyre for the money imo.

    You did very well to get the Hankooks for €75 IMO. We would be €87.50 for them which puts them close to Bridgestone money so we don't bother stocking them.

    u could try this guy, sean mc manus in drogheda, not a million mile from swords. i just copied this off his website:
    205 55 16 Kormoran: €55.00

    Buy any 4 Bridgestone / Pirelli (205 55 16): €300.00

    i had kormoran on a motor before n they were allright, definitely a step up on some of the chinese stuff that wear out in no time

    I could recommend Vredestein - had them last time on my Mondeo. Very grippy. Now I have Hankooks - I find them good too, but IMO Vredestein grip better.
    Hankook is cheaper.
