215 40 R17 Tyres
« on: May 15, 2019, 10:58:00 PM »
I need to get some decent rubber for the new wheels and to be honest I've not bought decent tyres for over 6-7 years now.
Any recommendations on tyre brands and models?

For a road car i swear by Uniroyal rainsport 3s.
Ok not an out n out performance tyre but in all conditions dependable grip.
Ive got them on my Scooby wrx and dry or rain husling along they great.
On my eunos too.
