I remember that Mini comes with Bridgestone, Michelin or Goodyear as standard. I'm wondering what the VW choices are?

I have Dunlop on mine.

Falken Sincera's on 14" steel wheels. My spare was a Bridgestone Ecopia. I made my dealer swap it for a Falken because I wanted all the tyres to match.


I have wondered which of the two tyres would be the best quality.

Contis on the stock wheels but anything aftermarket and 17" tends to get either Falkens or Toyo Proxies.

The Falken Sinceras (frank sinatras!) Are made specifically for the Up! Not used on
Any other car.

Mine came with Bridgestone ER300 on the Classics. Have had Conti premiumcontact 2 and ER300s on my last car; both seemed pretty good, but the Contis had a slightly more comfortable ride and would be my preference.

That's very interesting! I didn't know that was the case with the Sincera's.

I got a flat tyre only 6000kms in, and it was surprisingly easy to find the exact one again.
