    That sounds promising mate.

    I can get two for £170...........is this a fair price for these tyres??

    I'll have to have them fitted but won't cost a fortune for that.

    Proxes are good tyres, but they're quite soft so wear quicker than others, but the soft composition gives better holding.

    Swings and roundabouts!!

    indeed it is a "sport" tyre. Great for maximum grip if you want that, but forget about getting 20,000 miles out of them. Probably 10,000 miles tops for most that use these.

    HMMM, not sure I need a "sport" tyre and I don't like the idea of 10k out of them.

    But thanks a lot for the info.....

    most over at vxronline seem to agree they wear fairly quick, as you'd expect for softer compound
