RE: Tire Review
Haha budget tire....

I've never understood people who skimp on tires. They are the single most important piece of equipment on a car ...(hint... what actually keeps you on the road...)

Now I fully get for economical reasons one buying cheaper tires but still... rather go for the best tire you can afford...

It's the same thing as guys putting bigger turbo's.. want more and more HP etc and they still keep the stock brakes ... just don't get it....

My 2cents.

RE: Tire Review
They are crap.

Nexen from Mintys is cheaper, lasts longer and grips about the same/slightly more.

Hi
THanks . I was thinking of getting a premium tire but then i thought i would get a cheaper tire and use the rest of the money that i Would of spent on a few lap dances .

RE: Tire Review
I have them on my car, not sure if it the "2" version tho.

Iv had them on the car for 3 years and they still have about 70% on them.
(I dont drive the car in the week)

Also i only have a 320 so im not sure how a more powerful car would be on them.

As for the comment about not putting f1 spec tyres on, some people have lower budgets for things than others.


Its like me asking why you dont drive a Mclaren?

I got them on my car since i bought my car. Cant really complain to be honest. Grips decently but if you launch the car, it spins 3/4 of the way through first then grips. I got a stage 1 tune on the car too. Got my 335 now almost 2 years and the thread is still decent on it. As too more expensive tyres i can't give you the answer there as i only had this on the car. Just my 2 cents.

I agree.
I have a Japanese vehicle, for when I want to save money, but would still get tyres decent enough for the speed and load rating of the vehicle.

Audi has made Hankook OEM on most of its new vehicles.
I would suggest that is a vote of confidence, if you need a good tyre that won't cost a lot
