The Conti SC3's were a replacement for Pirelli Pzero Neros which were, frankly awful. Never have rated Pirellis and they confirmed my hatred TBH. Replaced with 5mm tread left.
Used to use Goodyear F1's on my older Mk1.5 and they were good, but quality control was not great with them and they all needed replacing before half worn due to splitting off the sidewall. A common and documented problem.
Would only ever fit Contis on my cars now. Simply stunning tyres

I would definately go for something else, a set of Vredestein, even Toyo T1-R are far better in the dry!

Prices look the same about £140 per tyre and I just passed the 13k mile mark, might make the upgrade soon, over a week of good weather and sudden torrent of rain, and i forgot the fronts were needing changed, and almost lost the car on a roundabout!!!

215/55X17 on my dads
all good tyres I prefer the XL just because of the stiffer side wall......

Managed to grap a set of hp's before they disappeared of the shelf last year. The fronts seem to last between 13-14000 miles. The rears are still the originals and the car is nearly at 27,000 miles. Mine is the 182bhp version. Its mainly driven around country roads not motorway work. Its either replace with ps3 or the Goodyear variant I think

IF for the right price I can find bridgestones I will use them as they are a VERY hardwearing tyre failing that conti sc5 are a really fantastic tyre
