I got a full set from openo for 470 and I'm happy with there performance but had Goodyear before so can't compare them to sessanta

Why did you move away from Goodyear (Eagle F1s presumably)?

The car had dunlops front and eagle f1 rear when I purchased it. I wasn't happy with the performance and the tyres felt hard, I only ever use Pirelli or vreds as they are softer than rival tyres and chose vreds as the price was good.

I recently switched from Goodyear Eagle F1s to Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance on the fronts. Great tyre alternative to the Eagle F1s, compound is a little softer. The ride feels great and the tyre is also very quiet. When my RFTs run down on the rear, I'll be switching to Goodyears on the back too.

I can't comment on handling too much as I don't really push the car, however after a little bit of spirited driving the tires felt good, even in the rain. Not quite as good for cornering as the F1's, but perfect for me as my day to day driving is commuting from London to Bracknell.

Ive been using Vredestein Ultrac Vorti over the past year and find them brilliant in both wet and dry conditions and will definitely be buying them again once they've worn out.
