- T5 SE 180
Given the huge mileage that some seems to be getting from a set of tyres, I think there is definitely an issue with the sort of tyres one can get for 18" rims. In the end I got 17,500 miles out of my Contisport Contact 255/45/R18s. I now have Uniroyal Rain 3 255/45/R18s (£715 fitted) and it looks like these could be similar. I have just swapped them front to back after 9,000 miles. These tyres are quite high tech, very light with so called Shark Tooth technology and a weird tread. See pic. The one thing I will say for them, they really do grip in the rain yes, but they are also are an order of magnitude better on snow than the Contisports. The latter is a relief cos the Contisports were positively useless. The bottom line, 17,500 miles really isn't good.
