    I put some Lassa-driveway Sport on mine just before Christmas---seem to be ok--not a lot of road noise--think they are made by Bridgestone----Dave

    tried loads, I found Nexen (N8000 i tried on my Vectra) to be horrendous, removed and threw away - others will have different stories.

    Vredestein / Hankook / Khumo / Rainsport 3 - excellent tyres, great grip in both wet and dry, quiet on the road, but found to return only 10k miles on the front. At 140ish for a mid range tyre, not brilliant.

    Goodyear Assymetric 3 F1 - amazing wet and dry grip, very quiet on the road and will cost you 160ish per tyre, but you will get 25 - 30k miles from a pair on the front.

    All depends on your driving / driving style, we all like different things, so what one of us says will be the best, it is not necessarily going to be the best for you. You need to try the tyres out and work out what's best for you.

    As above, have Landsail LS588 on my Vectra. Very good cheap tyre. Have Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 on the Insignia, more expensive but better value than others of the same calibre, extremely good tyres.

    I’ve just replaced four Nexen n8000 by Hankook Ventus Prime3, the nexuses only lasted about 20000 miles of mostly highway. I didn’t noticed any difference in grip, but do see a slightly better (10%) better mileage for the Hankooks.
