Hi all, i have just had car serviced (220), 1st one and everything fine (except) tyres. 12000 miles and all four need replacing, they reckon under inflated. i think its a soft compound. i am not sure what to go for now. Michelin pilots, Goodyear F1s or yokahamas. what do you think and have you any personal prefrences.

Odd that your rears need changing so soon !!!!
underinflated so the edges of the tyres are worn?
If only worn on one edge of each tyre get the tracking checked.
On my 24, i always use Falken FK-451 (not ZE-512 crap), excellent grip, wear quite well (16,000mls front, >40,000mls rear), look pretty cool and a good price.
I found pilots OK but very expensive, but there again lasted longer, about same mile/?.
Yokohama tend to be a soft compound, i have both AVS Sport and A520 on my cossie, brilliant grip. Tested on road and track days.
AVS Sport would be my next choice for the Mondeo but running to many cars costs me too much anyway and they arn't cheap, but bloody good.

Hope this is some food for thought.
cheers

I'm on my seond pair of F1's on the front of the 200 the rears will do around another couple of thousand, the new one I had put on the front are the g3 trea pattern (the older one) I have never had any trouble with F1's and got 25k out of the fronts

have changed all tyres now to goodyear and they are much quieter on the road. when i took the car to independant tyre company they checked all tyres and tracking again all 4 wheels and found that 1 of the rears had 2 screws in it, this is why it was under pressure, they reckon both rears good for another 6000 miles, fronts were well worn, i have kept the old ones incase i can pick up spare alloy, but not sure if it will fit in wheel well, if not will sell tyres.

Does anyone know if the ST220 needs high load index tyres? I'm sure I read it somewhere but couldn't find it again.
I had Avon ZZ1's on the front of mine and they were totally destroyed on the inside in less than 10000 miles (I think, they were on it when I bought the car). Replace with Goodyear f1's, hope they last longer.
