    Apart from noise how were they shit? Was looking at those and a couple other tires until I saw the Bridgestone 4 for 3 offer. Might've dodged a bullet there

    Smellytofu don't know Turanzas so wouldn't know difference between them noise wise. But as I said it's not bothering me. Very happy with them thus far.

    They tramlined quite a bit, they were no where near as good in the wet as my 70% RE003s. Sidewalls were too soft for my liking too (on a Mk6 Golf GTi, not quite a porky pig but not a falcodore either).

    Most of all, I don't believe that the performance of the tyres justified the price. They're on deal all the time too, which makes me think that Continental are pushing bonus money on them all the time so that they sell. I had them on a Fiesta XR4 as well and they didn't last long and grip didn't justify the fast wear.

    I've tested the Conti's and RE003s back to back on my golf and the car is better in EVERY way on the Bridgestones.

    Got a set of Yokohama AE50 on the G6E a month or so back. Was going to go with the RE003, but these were about the same price so thought I would try something different. I wasn't expecting much, but I'm impressed.
    The cars a boat, so dry grip has never really been an issue. I went for a good drive last week and they did get a bit squirmy when they got really hot. They maybe under steered a bit more than the RE002, and definitely don't have the rock solid feel of the Sportmax RT.
    In the wet however they are brilliant. Miles ahead of the RE002, and I think better than the Dunlops too. Really really impressed. They will almost take full throttle in the wet in 2nd (300rwkw). I have also had a set of ATR2's. They wouldn't take full throttle in 5th in the wet.
