Tyres? Opinions?

Hi guys had some bad road noise recently so went to the garage and was told I need 4 new tyres and wheel alignment! Apparently the inners on the back are quite bad.

Any good reccomendations? Currently looking at Avon ZV7 as theyre rated as good as Goodyear/michelin equivilents on sites like blackcircles.

Goodyear’s for me. Tried everything else and they are what works best.

Each to their own...
Revo stg2+, BCS Powervalve TBE, HPFP, HR springs, factory skirts/spoiler plus tripleR splitter, Pflow induction, cupra brakes and kenwood DNX521DAB.

I doubt geometry aliment will fix the VAG trait of the problematic inner edge of the rear tyre wear, although I guess someone on here will of fixed it and also maintained the handling characteristics/balance of their car at the same time.

Unfortunately due to keeping tyres to long on the back of some VAG cars does result in bad road noise, no tyre will fix this after wear but some manufactures maybe better than others..

Go on tyre review site and have a good look. What am using are great but what works for me might not work for someone else
