Quote from: Iain on October 23, 2022, 11:54195/50/15s up front works perfectly well and should open a few more options. Michelin do them in the PS3 in that size, i have them on mine. Pricey tyre but worth it, been very happy with mine and still going strong after numerous track days on them. Whatever your budget and planned use, theres a tyre out there that'll do the job, and people will have good and bad reviews about pretty much all of them.
Quote from: Craigjm on October 23, 2022, 14:29OK so that opens up Michelin MPS3 for £410 a set all round. Im good with that. Have you got any other suspension mods on yours? I am thinking at some point I might drop mine with Tien springs. So you dont get any rubbing with the 10mm wider width? rides OK with the shorter tyre wall?
Quote from: Iain on October 23, 2022, 16:34Ive been lowered on eibach springs and now on coilovers, zero issues with rubbing, still plenty of room. Shorter tyre wall is fine aswell.

Quote from: 1979scotte on October 24, 2022, 10:35I've no idea what I would buy these days tbh since my favourite yoko was discontinued.
Quote from: Craigjm on October 23, 2022, 11:14I am not a fan of the Bridgestones
Quote from: Petrus on October 24, 2022, 08:34Be aware they have softer sidewalls for more comfort, the down side (for some) being just that wee bit less responsiveness/feedback.
Quote from: Dev on October 24, 2022, 19:59Bridgestones tires are like any other brand where you can have a bad experience with one model but on the whole they are a top tier tire brand. It is possible that you have tires that have already expired well past their date as these tires were discontinued a good while back and therefore the rubber has hardened. The original tires for this car was in my opinion the best. They had stiff sidewalls and good characteristics.
Quote from: Ardent on October 24, 2022, 21:10Here we go again. Sidewall stiffness. The missing piece of info on a tyre wall.
QuoteSofter compared to what?
QuoteCompared to ad08r no doubt.
QuoteVery different cars granted, but I am the common denominator and I'm happy, which is only the bit that matters.Which is the same for all of us.
Quote from: Craigjm on October 24, 2022, 21:54I have had Bridgestone Potenza as OEM on a Porsche 911 Turbo and on Maserati Quattroporte and had failures on both that were not down to punctures when the tyres were sent back. I'm not saying they are bad tyres they clearly are not. I am just not a fan

Compared to other brands ??Given the fleva is part of the advan range, I am going with, they have something in there, more than the ordinary.I have the fleva on my daily and very happy with them. Very different cars granted, but I am the common denominator and I'm happy, which is only the bit that matters.Which is the same for all of us.Comes back to, will they be available in oem 15" 185 205 when I need them. ?
