330i Front Tyre Combinations?

Recommended Posts

All,

My front tyres are shot. The rears are OK, and are Hankook Ventus Evo2.

What's a decent front tyre that wont break the bank and will last a while?

Currently, the fronts are Avon, and they seemed pretty noisy.

Thanks!

Not a fan of the Hankook? Lots of people run them and rave about them. Never ran them myself - I use Vredestein tyres but I wouldn't hesitate on the Ventus Evo2s..

I had Avon ZZ3's when I bought the car - HORRIBLE tyre.. So glad when I replaced them

No, as I said the fronts are Avon, and they are noisy. Good to know it's not just me that noticed!

I've got Hankook EVO2 S1's on the rear, but the ones I've been quoted for the front are Ventus V12 Evo2, which have a completely different tread pattern.

Are there any other Hankook types that would match?

Thanks.

Ah I get ya now.. Sorry.

Can you get them online and get them fitted locally?

Much better to have a matching set if you can..

Ah so you can still get them! My local tyre supplier couldn't find any.

The idea was to take them with the wheels and let the re-furb company do them. Only issue then is where to dispose of the old ones.

I think the local recycling centres take them 1 or 2 at a time? Just go on separate occasions if need be..

OK I think I'll get them online and get the re-furbers to fit them.

Presumably they are left and right-handed tyres?

Cheers!

The look asymmetric so can be fitted to either side.

It's the directional ones you have to be careful of, but again they can be fitted to either side.

Also double-check with your local council. I just discovered my council charge £8+VAT per tyre to take them at the local recycling centre.

Try to get the refurb company to dispose of them.

The re-furbers won't take them I already asked that.
