    Default 4 Toyo's bought today!

    I finally decided to get some decent tyres on my SRI CDTI 120 today. Did a bit of homework from you guys and saw that the Toyo's T1-R's were highly recommended. So went to www.blackcircles.co.uk and armed with a 5% disount by using code '1E419645' came to £364.16 for 4 (225/45x17) fitted.

    I then went to Demon Tweeks in Wrexham and they wanted £420! I asked them to match it, and they did.

    I suppose if you don't ask, you don't get

    Anyway, after just a few miles the car is much better, especially in the wet. Can't wait for them to bed in properly

    best tyres I've ever had on my car for shear grip in wet and dry ....BUT....they just don't last enough ...way to soft

    but that was on my veccy b GSI so they might last a bit longer on the veccy c

    I've had 2 sets of kummo's (sp) ecsta sport on my gsi over the last 2 years ..they were cheap but surprisingly performed very well and lasted a fair bit longer

    I had 4 on my mk3 astra and they lasted me 4,000 miles but they were illegal long b4 that, they are grippy as **** though.

    They would have lasted longer if it wasn't for me driving like a to**er

    Thats not bad. Think I've done around 7k on the fronts and there still a reasonable amount of thread left. Not sure if they'll see 15k. Will have to see...

    They lasted 10 months and I do 20K+ a year so probably more than 15K but they were at the limit by then.
