What tires? (224m Stock 18" wheels)

Longing to change tires as the current ones somehow managed to survive 11 year old. Mounting stock 18" wheels, the 224M.

Looking for the best value tire, rated for high speeds (270kmh+)

I know all about the current best tyres but not sure if they are a good fit for these wheels or if they even come in 18" (PS4, New goodyears etc.)

Any suggestions for front and rear?

Cheers

For summer tires that won’t see track time 4S are your best bet.

I'd agree, but I don't believe the 4S is available in 18" sizes in Europe.

The issue we have is that the good tyres are either not available in our size, or there's a front tyre available but no matching rear - or there's a rear available but no matching front.

I think the Goodyear F1-Supersport is now available in the standard Z4M sizes - and the reviews are very good (i.e. better than the 4S in some scenarios), but I'm still wearing out my Michelin Supersports so not tried out any of the new 'models' yet.

The Continentals also perform well, but their wear rate is a bit worse than both the Michelin and Goodyear UHP tyres, so may not work out at good VFM.
