    Recommendations for dry fast road tyres?

    I have a 182 ff and I was wondering what you lot think is a good tyre? i'm looking at 195/45/r16 I have seen that the avon zv7 is quite liked but is it grippy in the dry? my thinking is that because it lasts a long time the rubber is harder which sacrifices grip? I know the pilotsport 3 are...

    Tyre/spacer question

    Hi, I’m looking at changing all 4 tyres on my 182. I have 195s on at the moment but due to the lack of tyre options in 195s, I’m looking to switch to 205/45r16. However, I’m concerned they might scrub on the rear arches. The wheels themselves are turinis. The car is on eibach springs and has...

    Life in these Toyo R888s?

    Bought a set of alloys with some used R888s, two are flogged and the other two have reasonable tread to them (2.5-5mm) I'm going to repaint the rims and purchase road tyres. I want to ask those with experience with these tyres if there is any life left in this set for somebody? (16" 205/45)

    Any tyre recommendations?

    Recently bought a 200T and was wondering if anyone has any good experiences with a particular tyre? Not looking to spend more than £100/tyre so Goodyear Eagle F1 and Dunlop SportMaxx are out of the question. Should mention that I have to 18" Alloys so size is 205/40/r18.

    My New Clio 182

    Hi all, So I’m new to this forum, I just got a Clio 182 after having a mk2 golf. This is very different. As you can see I’ve got a few mods : air filter, miltek exhaust and uprated engine mounts. Would love some advice on maintaining the car as it’s got 77k miles full service history and most...

    Hi, I have 2 sets of wheels, I was going to keep 1 set for the road and the other just for track use (only a few times a year). What sort of 15" tyres should I be looking at for the track that are reasonably priced? Thanks

    New List 1B tyre - Extreme VR2

    The MSA have listed a new competition tyre ...... Extreme VR2 - which I believe is made in Poland? The tread pattern looks similar to the AR1 but the new VR2 comes in three different compounds (soft, medium or hard) which might make it a good option for competition use. Has anybody tried...

    Continental cs3 performance

    Bit of an odd one. I've been falling out with the cs3s fitted to the 197 recently. It started on a spirited country drive last year when the rear got a bit squiggly on perfectly dry roads. Normally it's always properly planted with cs3s all round. Then at oulton I could not get traction...

    6j x 15 tyre choices?

    Hi guys, gonna need some new tyres in a bit, what size should I go for on the standard 15" alium alloys? As far as I know they come standard with 185/55r15 but i've heard some use 190 or 195 sections and anywhere from 45 to 55 walls. Which is best fitting and performance wise?
