A little off topic but....tyre choice

I need to replace all 4 tyres which are currently Continentalcontact ssr runflats on 19 inch wheels. They have been alright for the time I’ve had them but looking at the Pirelli P zero equivalent....anyone running these? Always think the tyre choice makes a little difference to the look as well.

I have 19 inch alloys and i need to replace mine soon, think they Pilo sport 2, so the natual replacement is Pilot Sport 4's.
They've lasted me 21k but then i'm not hard on them.

Do they make a difference to the look? i don't think so

I swapped / generally do swap to Michelin tyres when they're due.

Last BM I had, swapped from Bridgestones (factory fit) to Michelin PS and they transformed the car, last car had Dunlops on (factory fit) and swapped to PS4's and they were superb. So this one will be getting a set when due.

Put a set of CrosClimates on father in laws little pug last year and he has been delighted with them.

I would look to move away from runflats.

Just about any premium tyre will feel like a massive upgrade.

Pirreli p zero are very good, but they are not the best for longevity on the drive wheels! 9000-10,000 miles! Only a little bit of spirited driving...... honest!!!
