The Yokahama C drives wear really quickly, my g/f's pulsar has a set of them on which are down to the tread wear indicators and have only done 28,000kms.

I've had Yokohama's before, there good when new but are soft & wear very quickly..

Bridgestone Turanza's are really good..

I can't remember what my EF came with, but there made by Hancook & seem to be pretty good so far..

yeah adam, mattronics got it for me, the yokos wear quickly.

And also, a few of you are talking well of the hankooks, maybe they have got their s**t together, but we had em on the old girls daewoo a few years back and they ended up bubbling and going out of round after not very many kays. We could only assume cause of the "heat" in the far north... which aint really all that hot.

As i have said before tyres that give good value for money are bridgestone or federal. Now these are good value for money tyres and handel well for the average 20 something driver who thinks they go faster than they really do. Honestly if you want a tyre that will grip, it has to wear faster with a softer rubber compound. Therfore if you want to go around corners like your on rails and dont mind a little extra grip as a substition for shorter tread life go for the yokohama.
