So her RX sport needs a set of fronts (235/55/19). The Avon ZX7 and the Goodyear Wrangler HP All Seasons caught my eye. Anyone have experience of these? Any preference? She does about 10k a year mainly around town but didn't want to end up being stuck in 1cm of snow IF the winter weather ever came ;)

This update probably isn't very helpful for those of you running standard wheels but thought you might find it interesting!
I've had my new Michelin PS4'S on for a few days. My wheels are an inch wider than standard all round so I was able to fit 255s up front and 275 in the back. I've heard some isf owners run a square set up with 255s all round which would have been an easier fit on the rear but I think this is only really suitable for the track.
With an aggressive offset, lowered suspension and 275s I had to get the rear arches rolled. A local bodyshop called endless road did an amazing job including full weather proofing and respray of the outer arches for just £270.
First impressions are very good. The car feels rock solid and cornering speeds are even higher than before 😊. The standard tyre set up on the isf is already excellent and I never felt it needed more grip on the road but the wider set up takes it to a new level. I think you would need to do crazy speed to get understeer, although I guess 400bhp will still light up the rears if you want 😁.
I can't really say if the PS4'S are better than the mpss I had on before as they were standard size but both are excellent tyres. I think our tame professional driver @Big Rat should take my car for a test drive to see what he thinks... 😎
No pictures sorry as it's impossible to photo black tyres on a black car!
