Where do you live? Unless you're coming across snow on the roads on a regular basis I'd be opting for a summer tyre.

Pirelli P7 is a very nice all round tyre and good value. If you want max performance something like Michelin PS4. Your current tyres are probably fine though?

In Dunedin atm, i lost traction the other day as I was going around an icy corner. It was a first and I was quite lucky

thank you for the suggestions. they're winter tyres as was explained to me so I will probably have to swap them out eventually.

PS4s rate very highly for wet cornering and braking, which is why I have them

NOT OPTILIFE!!!

The car came with them fitted. One has to be overly cautious the moment there's a little moisture on the road.

tyre size: 17"

budget: 200-400

driving style: inner city, highway (actually quite a bit of it and more on the aggressive side of things)
