Using a tyre fitter is usually best Wink

I am running Khumo's on my sportline alloys as well and a very fair price at £110 a corner fitted. (18mths ago).I found them to be smoother and quieter than the standard 16" steelies.
I have Khumo's on the car as well and I think they are good tyres.

I have found the khumo's to be good but they used to be a cheap budget tyre and the price of them seems to have gone up alot since they have got popular.

 I wonder if the same thing will happen to clear, fullrun and autogrip as these all seem to be very cheap at the moment for what they are. Has anyone used them? I am tempted to try them at the prices.

i had full run 19's on my M3. they were silly cheap compared to others. tbh not dreadful, but defo not great eather!! tred pattern was good, and they seemed to be lasting as good as any other budget. the worst bit about them was tyre squeel and dreadful wet weather performance. that didnt worry me so much as i made it a rule to myself not to go speeding around in the wet as its too easy to have a slide or fail to stop in the worst case.
