Tyres

The best you can afford depending on your use. If you do alot of mileage something that will last but if you don't do alot something that will grip really well and wear faster, as its better to wear out than rot out. I always look for low mileage cars a very good wet performance coupled with low noise. I find higher noise can tire me out!

Hi all what tyres are the ones I should fit on my mk11 Vitesse thanks

Not all tyres like all cars. Not all cars like all tyres. 

I fitted Continentals to my TR4A and they squealed like a pig (just like in an American movie)

The car works well with Vredstein T-Track (cheap but ugly) or the Sport classic (nice looking but expensive)

I'm sure other Vitesse owners will guide you better.

usual stuff. Probably 155/80 13 tyres if std sized wheels. My favorite brands, Toyo are cheap enough and perform well. Better, especially in the wet, Falken and Uniroyal. But Dunlop, Goodyear etc are all good. 

Avoid the budget stuff, not worth the saving.

Happy with the Uniroyal RainExpert tyres I have on my Spitfire.

Only tyres I've had that I didn't like on the Spit. were the Pirelli's it had on when I bought it.  Oddly high wear rate.

My Spitfire Sixpot has Dunlops which are excellent: https://www.dunlop.eu/en_gb/consumer/tires/results.html?w=175&h=70&r=13&l=82&s=T&type=size

My GT6 Mk3 has Mohawk of the same size . These are made by Hancook - Chinese but I have no problems with them. Overall, the Dunlops give me greater confidence particularly on damp roads.
