    Hey ppl,

    Was wondering what tyres you'd recommend for a Ford Fiesta 2002 1.25. 3.5mm of tread left on the right side but about 4mm or so on the left, not sure on the makes without checking but it is used regularly around twisties so handling is key.

    I was thinking Michelin Energy's, fantastic grip wet or dry and excellent wear and tear.

    Anything else to consider? £110 for a pair I think?

    Also, what are the Eagle F1's like regards price and such?

    Even in the wet? It seems its between them and the Michelen Energy's. What are they like for wear? I know the Energy's will go on and on but will the Eagle's too?

    Thanks

    Talk about apples and oranges - the Michelen Energys are an ultra budget bottom of the range Michelen, whereas the Eagle F1's are high performance top of the range.

    My sister has Energys on her car - they perform as you'd expect, naff but they'll last for thousands and thousands of miles.

    Why not somewhere in between, a set of Goodyear Hydragrips?
