    Default Tyre Test - Syron Race 1

    I've been approached to test review the Syron Race 1 tyres on the Vectra VXR

    I've recently put them on the Fiat 500 as per this thread here...

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=140469&highlight=syron+race

    I normally use Goodyear Eagle F1 aysemmetric tyres which are really good.. and my standard reference tyre. Or Yokohama A048 semi-slick race tyres for the track.

    But this company is very insistant that their new tyres are a 'proxy' equivalent or better and have asked if I would review them. Syron is the new kid on the block and are getting good reviews.

    Watch this space as they will be fitted this afternoon. Lets hope the VXR just doesnt eat them alive... or try to kill me.

    So far these tyres have done good on the Fiat 500, but thats a lightweight low powered run about. The VXR isnt.

    I'll be posting my review updates and opinions in this thread for those of you that may be interested in a new high performance, low cost tyre

    TBH they look like road tyres with substantial rain grooves more like the T1R than R888!

    Exactly. They are road tyres, not track tyres.

    Apparently they will be producing Track tyres at a later date.

    Yeah, £102.71 each for 235/40 R18 extra load, which is a lot cheaper than my usual bill. They also ship tyres directly to your door or fitment centre and are very cheap on prices.

    www.tyretraders.com

    0121 568 8000

    Speak with Chris (boss) or Anthony as they are prepared to offer deals and special offers if you mention me (spoons) when calling.

    I've asked them to contact the club directly as well to become official traders.

    I like these guys because of the prices they offer, and if you're local they dont **** your rims up like some fitters !! Very careful with your car so its good

    Had the Syron Race 1 235/40 ZR18 95Y tyres fitted this afternoon.

    Got home, washed the car, checked the pressures then went out for a drive.

    First impressions are good. Weather is very warm and dry.

    They are as quiet as my GoodYear Eagle F1 tyres, in fact, for round town driving up to 40 mph this afternoon I honestly wouldnt have noticed any difference between the two brands, not for ride, accelleration or braking. I've been quicker than 40 mph as well and there isnt any drone or unwanted cabin noise from them. Just like the GoodYears which is good.

    These Syron tyres have an aysemmetric type tyre pattern, which is like the Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres I had before. I prefer Aysemmetric tread patterns as they dont follow the ruts in the road like directional tyres sometimes can. So steering and heavy braking tends to be more controlled on uneven surfaces.

    This is daft, but when I washed the car I decided to put some Autoglym Instant Tyre Dressing on the sidewalls to freshen them up. The sidewalls are very smooth and its so easy to put the cleaner on them. The Goodyears were riddled with patterns and grid-like grooves which are harder to get between. Anyways detailer will like them for that. The tyre tread pattern is very nice to look at as well, for show days.

    I'm going to do some motorway driving later and at some point it'll rain, so will see how they fair in the wet.

    Will keep you posted but so far, so good

    Here's some pics.... (Oh and please excuse the missing centre caps, I managed to melt them on track at Castle Combe this weekend so I need new ones... )
