Quote from: Iain on May 28, 2023, 17:49Just found a 225 TR1 so they are out there. Im sure a few have run them on here. There wouldnt really be any issue going either way but id prefer bigger rather than smaller given the choice.
Quote from: MrChris on May 28, 2023, 18:06That's what she said... Sorry. Do you mind sharing where you found the tyres? So the 215 40 are not as tall... Does this lead to other issues...?? So many questions, and so many variables, but researching this made me realise why there are so many tyre topics regarding the MR2

Quote from: shnazzle on May 28, 2023, 20:33Ah if it's going to get used then no, definitely don't so AD08 Also they wear really fast. Totally not economical. Bear in mind that a lot of the NS-20 reviews are done in heavier cars. I found them quite nice on the mr2 to be honest. A little squeally on hard corners but only when being a bit naughty.@tricky1138 has had them for a while now.Yohokama Fleva?
Quote from: tricky1138 on May 28, 2023, 20:53As Patrick has said, I've had Nankang NS-20 on a while, again at the recommendation of Carolyn.I'm running 195/50/15 and 225/45/16 and have had no complaints with them.Patrick can attribute to their wet handling, when he tried to follow me back from Ding Day a couple of years ago, and both @Call the midlife! and @Topdownman can confirm they seam to handle ok in dry when pushing them.
Quote from: MrChris on May 28, 2023, 21:22Good to know, I've really struggled with my current tyres in the wet.Although @shnazzle struggled to keep up with old ladies in Yaris's, so the story goes...
Quote from: MrChris on May 28, 2023, 20:33Thanks all for the input. I've decided on the following.- Keep costs low, because this car is not supposed to be costing me much this year(!)- Stick with the stock sizing because I'm more comfortable with that.- Front: Proxes TR1 - 185 55 15 - local garage has them in stock with half price wheel alignment.- Rear: Nankang NS20 - 215 45 16 - local place can fit them. Yes they're cheap but @Carolyn recommends them even though I've seen them reviewed badly elsewhere. Worst case scenario: my rears are under tyred and I get more oversteer

Quote from: Gaz mr-s on May 29, 2023, 00:55Well why not go TR1 all round. They're cheap.
Quote from: MrChris on May 29, 2023, 09:03I couldn't find TR1s in a 215 anywhere.
