Hi I'm looking at getting some new types as mine are getting very low, not too sure what to get can some people advise me on what are a half decent tyre I'm not looking at getting the best ones out there but just a half decent set at sensible money
In 195 45's just get contisports. I like the dry/hot feel of the original contisport (which you can still get) but the CS3's are probably better all rounders (I'm told theyre better by other 172 driver). Otherwise look for Bridgestone RE050 or Goodyear GSD3, both very different feel - B's are stiff/square profile and feel nice in the dry wheras G's are very good wet (I prefer Bridgestone's as they are Asymentrical, which I like.
I like Hankook also, had v12's when they were fresh on the market around 4 years ago when I had a 2.0l 205 GTi. I could only compare them to Toyo T1R's though (they were better than the toyos)
I also had Hankook's RS2's in 205 50 r16 (an equivanlent of firestone RSR's?) on my scooby STi at around the same time. They were a VERY good fast road tyre, wish I could have that tyre on the clio but it doesn't seem available in our sizes. I still rate Conti for making the best road tyre at "sensible" budget (whatever that might be)
I didn't really want to spend any more than 300 have been looking at some of the recommendations on here but seem abit too pricey once paid for fitting I have found somewhere local who will do a full set of Toyo T1-R for 240 fully fitted which I thought was a good price what are they like any good I have seen a lot of people talking about them?
Yeah I've read they've discontinued them, mytyres.co.uk seem to have some in stock though (I hope). What's the rim protection like on them? I'm going to be putting fresh tyres on my refurbed Turinis so would like some form of protection on them!
