I have a 2012 Ford Fiesta which needs new tyres. Which tyre would give me the softest ride?

Michelin Cross Climate, Continental AllSeason Contact, Goodyear Vector 4-Seasons. All season tyres generally are softer, more compliant compound and can actually transform the ride of a small car. AllSeason Contacts have on my Fiat 500. Check Tyres On The Drive (bit.ly/2ZlEVaR) and Blackcircles.com (bit.ly/2JM6bqG) for sizes and prices and read our Tyre Buying Guide (bit.ly/2wsFHBU).
