well as i noted when i collected my new Siggy that the garage had kindly fitted the cheapest option of rubber (sunni's) i decided to see how these would indeed handle - and i can say for "general" day to day driving ...there ok - nothing special and not particularly grippy in the corners
nd when its wet there a different kettle of fish altogether .....the IDS and TC lights working at 60+mph on accelerating is a little disconcerting to say the least
- i wanted them off the car as quickly as possible but as i'm still exploring wheel options at present didnt want to fit an ultra expensive pair of rubber boots....for me to shelve them in a month or two
so having trawled the Saab Forums when i was doing the Turbo transplant i kept hearing of the above tyres sold by Neo bros .....and even a few posts on here as well by Derek Mc supporting the feedback they were recieving for a tyre that retails for £50 ..
so today i was en route to the madjeski stadium at reading for a conference ...only to arrive to be told that it had been cancelled because of the foorball(have they not heard of this amazing invention called the telephone) .....now as much as i like driving i can think of more enjoyable road than the A14 A11 M11 and M25 to sit on so on my way back i decided to pop into Neo bros at waltham and see if they had some in stock.. and they did
so i picked up x 2 extra load tyres and had them fitted when i got back to work late this afternoon ..i've been out on them for an hour (50 plus miles) and the initial report is there good
there actually quieter than the pirelli rosso's i had on the old signum on the 18's and grip initially seems very very good ...so if your looking for a reasonable and cheap option they get a thumbs up from me - and i will update the thread as soon as i've taken them out in the wet
