Don't bother with the toyo's , over rated , you can get Goodyears for the same money and I have yet to fault them.. . Tyrestop can usually get you everything in a day or two

I'll second that. Great tyre, especially the newer asymmetrics.

look at the tread wear it will be marked on the side wall of the tyre a average one is 280 or 300 this is how hard the tyre it, the softer it is the more grip but it wont last as long, for obvious reasons... i have brigstone potenza s there a 140 tread wear.. they have serious grip.. well happy with them. try camskill in the uk for the cheapest prices

hope this helps

didnt find any alloys,no ones want lend me a wheels!irish market is very bad for tyres(no premium tyres in stock)
so 2moro will go to N.I. for some good tyres :evil: make my decision UNIROYAL RAINSPORT 2 :roll: hopefully i make a good choice. alternative will be VREDESTERN SESSANTA or HANKOOK VENTUS :roll:
