So it looks at this point these are my choices: 1. Michelin 225/70VR15 XWX at £330/each (as fitted from factory) or, 2. Avon CR6ZZ 225/65R15 at £257/each (giving a slightly lower ride and smaller rolling diameter), 3. Avon Turbosteel 70 235/70R15 at £180/each (giving a slightly higher ride height and larger rolling diameter). Can anyone comment on these tires compared to each other? I've seen the Avons up close, and the tread depth looks to be a fraction of the Michelins. Also, are there really no other alternatives? Has Goodyear stopped making the Eagle ES-A? Firestone has no more Firehawk PV41? Pirelli no longer offers anything in this size and rating? Just checking my options before I make a decision. I'm primarily concerned with comfort, noise and safety. The car isn't going to be raced or run on a track, although I might like to find some winding mountain roads and open up the throttle now and again and would appreciate good traction. Longevity is important as well, especially if one tire type will end up lasting twice as long as another. Thanks!
