    Hi


    I have goodride on my Hi-Lux, the grip in the wet is about zero.:Blush: I know the roads out here (Gozo, Malta) are not the best but it is a good job they are usually dry. I am going to have to change mine again soon and will be looking at other makes.:Angry:

    Hi rob,

    My I suggest you look at "Bridgstone" we had a full set (7) fitted, balanced and the old ones disposed of, for less than £75.00 each, about September last year.

    Hi Rob
    I fitted Hancook 2 years ago and they are fine. Little noisier but not much. Certainly less cost than original Michaelin.
