Your Motoring Problems Solved

Question: Please recommend tyres for an 04 Ford Mondeo 1.8 LX that does about 15,000 miles a year in a mixture of town and motorway driving. I'd like reasonably quiet tyres, if possible. Are Michelin Primacy HP's any good? -- RS from Teddington, west London

Answer: Michelin's Primacy HP tyre has built up an excellent reputation since being introduced last year when it replaced the Pilot Primacy. Independent testing suggests you can expect up to 25% better wear and that braking distances can be improved by up to two metres. Crucially it achieves this with little noise - a definite plus when you spend much of your day on the road.

Your tyre size will depend on which wheels you opted for when you bought the car. As an idea of cost, Primacy HP tyres code 205/55 16V would cost 90.90 each including VAT and mobile fitting at the online tyre specialist Etyres (0800 028 9000, www.etyres.co.uk). Check out the exact sizes for your particular vehicle at the Michelin website (www.michelin.co.uk).
