Bridgestone Potenzas, but mine is 64 reg. They're **** (may be biased though because passenger side is pretty bald now).

Edit: I have a cupra though so you need decent tyres to not get a whole load of wheelspin

Mine came with Bridgestone Turanza T001 and they are excellent for grip in dry and wet but road noise seems quite high. Not sure if that is a fault of the tyres or the car or both.

DOT code is 3917 so they were made in the 39th week of 2017.

Pirelli P Zero on a Cupra, thought they were pretty good tbh, although I still decided to change to Michelin PS4s

Bridgestone Potenza S001. They aren’t great in damp but are getting low on tread and will be changed soon. Trying to decide between Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2 or Michelin PS4. I find the Bridgestone quite noisy so hoping others will be quieter.

Hankook Ventus S1 Evo 2 on SWMBO's FR ST. Only done 500 miles on them, but they appear to be black, round, quiet and made in Hungary

Previous FR came with Conti 5's which I've said elsewhere had an absolutely shocking wear rate.

My Cupra 300 came with Conti Sport 5s, the worst tyre I've had for wear rate. Fronts are down to 4mm after 9k miles, 80% of which was motorway

I bought mt FR used and I've the same on 3 wheels and then a "Triangle" on the OSR, deciding between Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2 or Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3, currently BlackCircles have a special offer whereby if you buy 4 Sport Maxx RT2's you get £25 off making them rather reasonably priced, although I think I may hold out for the Goodyear's as BlackCircles regularly have offers on various tyres.

I used to have 4 Dunlop Blue Respone on my old Mégane and couldn't fault them to be fair, when I swapped it for the FR I think I'd but about 20k (mainly motorway) on them and they still had plenty of tread.

I'll let you know how they compare when I fit PS4 or 4S's. Noise is acceptable on most roads, braking and side grip's OK. But can spin up easily under acceleration, even 2nd and 3rd in the dry.

Hankook Ventus S1 Evo 2 on my new FR, only done 1300 mikes but tyres seem OK although it's hardly rained since I took delivery but dry performance seems OK and not too noisy.

Bridgestone potenzas on my fr and can't wait to get rid of them. Good in the dry, reasonably quiet and appear to wear well (currently approaching 25k but getting low now). Wet grip is awful though. As little as a single rain drop and it looses it.

63 plate 2.0TDI DSG 150 SE Tech, came with Bridgestone Turranza Ecopia ER300 (205/55 R16). They were not very good...accelerating in wet to join a motorway...wheel spin and TC all the way. Even in dry it would wheelspin a bit....when car was returned @ 10k miles (total) had 5mm fronts, and 7mm rears. Had I kept the car, may have changed tyre to Dunlop BlueResponse or GY EffGripPerf or Michelin Primacy 3.
