    My Conti M3's on 19in csl reps need replacing. Maybe because their worn they are very noisy.

    Id like some advice please on replacements. I dont track the car so I dont need massive grip but
    I would like a much quieter tyre plus decent wet performance. Any suggestions ?

    Goodyear F1’s great tyre, decent price, last ages and great in the wet

    Which F1’s in particular may I ask have you used?
    Not that I need any just yet but when I do I was looking at Goodyear’s but you’ve got the Supersport, asymmetric 5, 3 and 2?

    Thanks in advance!

    I’ve run a few different asymetrics on the car and the M3 before that currently got 2’s on the front and 3’s on the rear haven’t tried the new super sports yet and probably won’t and they seem more track focused and mines not a track car, saying that I have tracked it on the current tyres and has zero issues despite them not being the holy grail MPSS :lolwsign:

    I used to use conti's on my m3 which were noisy too, got fed up of hearing the noise so using Avon zz5's now, definitely quieter and cheaper, holds the road ok.

    Currently using rotalla's from black circles on the 330 which are even cheaper and quieter, Can't comment about performance too much on it though as the car doesn't get driven that harsh tbh
