    You get what you pay for mate, sunny's are budget iirc, they'll be legal etc. but don't expect any real performance out of them

    Falken FK452, Maxxis MAZ1, Uniroyal rainsport 2, Toyo Proxes are all up there in mid/upper range but will cost you a fair bit more against your Sunny's, have a look on blackcircles.com for tyre reviews postd by actual users of the tyres you're looking at.
    Also remember that the tyres are literally you're cars only contact point with the road...

    Neuton NT5000 as used by alot of members (including myself) on here are a good compromise to the above, good performance in dry conditions for a competitive price from Neo brothers but IMO they're not really up to much in wet conditions.

    Dont get Sunny's as they are shocking in the wet.

    I myself are running Neuton tyres in 245/35/19 and love them. Great in the dry and better than all the budget tyres I have tried in the wet.

    If I could of stretched to that I would have Dre, my mate ran them on all 4 corners on his 400bhp Supra and it was faultless!

    No standard is 235/35/19 Y XL.

    I have Falken FK452's in that size from camskills (now about £115 each) on the front and I cannot fault them.

    Im running Syron Race 1 on each corner - not a well known brand but getting some very good reviews - see Spoons posts - he had them on his VXR at thunder road and he seemed impressed with them.
