Need New Tyres... Sorta Quickly

Hi guys,

I snapped a handbrake cable on the weekend which forced me to chuck the car up on stands and get me workin... I havent really kept an eye on my tyres until now, but basically my old tyres are stuffed. They are Yokohama A539's (215,60,R15) and I have to say they are the crappiest tyres I've ever used. I dont do burnouts or anything silly like that (sometimes spin them in the wet but not to the point of dangerous) and my tyres are ratshit!

I guess my question is, what tyre could i get that wont wear as quickly.. The yokies have a piss poor tread rating so they wore pretty quick... Im after a happy medium with grip and wear...

Any suggestions? They dont have to be the best tyres in the world coz im selling the car soon anyway... I just want new tyres.... BTW Wheels are 15 inch stock EA Ghia wheels
