Fiat Punto 1.2 8v

Got it new on my Punto 1.2 8v 2010,
After 5 years & 50.000 km they did what they are made for.
Gave me a few ambarasing moments when lost grip on street, looked like...
I am looking for something better now.

Mostly Country Roads for 290 Spirited miles

Ford Fiesta (mk4 facelift) 1.3 Flight

Had 3 of these on my car when I bought it last month (2 on the front, another on the rear passenger side).

So far they seem ok when the car is moving, but seem to have a tendency to break traction & spin-up unexpectedly when pulling out of junctions from stationery without hardly touching the throttle.... and this is with a Ford Fiesta that only has a 59bhp 1.3 Endura E lump under the bonnet.

Considering replacing with some Uniroyal RainExpert tyres later on in the year.
