Always best to stick with what's worked well on your car and your driving conditions. Stick with the Michelins. Sometimes changing brands may not result in a good outcome.

Any recommendations?

My rears which are originals have almost 60k, they are also very old at 7 years so probably best to replace them anyway. Noticed the telltale early cracking of the rubber.

My fronts have any done 26764km so I will be putting them on the rear and putting the new tyres on the front.

Update on my reply.

Replaced all 4 tyres with Goodyear Efficientgrip which was the OEM factory tyre for my car.

I still had the rears from factory; they lasted 7.74 years and did 66,861 km but the rubber was ageing badly even though tread was -o-k-.

On the front I had Hankook Ventus S1 noble2 H452; they lasted 3.54 years and I managed to get 35,039 km out of them. There was hardly any tread left.

The cabin noise it noticeably quieter now.
Hope someone finds this information useful.

Hmm, got a puncture and advise to replace all tyres.
Only done 32k km on them so a bit sceptical for the rears. Front I agree they are low.

Bridgestone and Goodyear are basically the same price fitted. Any reason to choose Bridgestone over Goodyear?

Considering Michelin Primacy 4 as they’re only a bit more expensive, thoughts?

Is it the Primacy 4 or Primacy 4ST you are considering? I believe the "ST" means Silent Tune - that is, intended to be quieter. I'm unsure if that means they perform any worse in the key ways, wet grip, longevity etc.

The relatively new Goodyear Eagle F1 Sports are getting good reviews and are priced quite well.

I ended up going with the Goodyears again. Happy with how much so get out of them and it’s annoying driving on the spare as it means no freeway driving and that’s majority of my normal commute to work.
I’ll post some of my tyre stats after I get them changed.

Front

Goodyear (factory) lasted <31,870 km
Hancook lasted 35,039 km
Goodyear lasted 33,297 km


Rear
Goodyear (factory) lasted 66,861 km


Current driving indicates the front and rear will need to be replaced next time in 2 years at the earliest.
