Personally i'd say the Michelins are the best. My dad used them on his MGF and said they had a fantastic life span and level of grip in both wet and dry! How the heck did you manage just 9500 miles??? Too much racing from the lights and wheelspinning maybe?????
It's a fine art not to wheel spin the ZT!!! I should know - I drove it while we were on holiday and laid rubber without even thinking about it....that's what you get for going from a 1.4 to a 2.5 KV6 which has more torque than a telephone operator!
Seriously though, we are very careful not to spin the wheels - I only spun them because I'm not used to the car - only driven it twice now. I can't work out why it's eating them so quickly....
I doubt it! I would have thought that MG would have thought of that when they put the tyres on the car. They must have been for some kind of test. Hmmmmmm. This one's got me. Have you asked your dealer why i could be happening too fast??? Are you telling porkies??? Are you a nutter, REALLY???
