My former ride, a Contour SVT was eatingtires.
Using Summer only AAA traction did not help matters.
So i had" OE BF Goodrich great tires cornered like on rails. noisy
Pirelli: PZero Nero Ok no complaints except soft sidewalls.
Goodyear: F1 no longer made in size I used. Good.
Now Conti is hot. #1 for a replacement for my Focus.
I may buy some just to have them around.
