I've just gone from Bridgestone RFT's to Continental 5's.

I've only had the conti's on for a few hundred miles so far, so maybe they're posdibly not fully worn in yet. I'm still getting vastly improved levels of grip compared to the RFT's. The roads were empty and damp on my way to work early this morning, so I tackled a few bends more enthusiastically than I normally would. The conti's really are confidence inspiring in bad conditions. I was very impressed with the wet grip. I would certainly of activated the traction control with the RFT's. I've not had the opportunity to try them out in good weather yet. Really please with them so far. Much smoother ride now too compared to the run flats.

Goodyear eagle F1 asymmetric 2's are worth considering to. These seem to be cheaper at love tyres than camskill a couple of weeks back when I was looking.
