    I have those on mine now (but in 225/45/18 guise) and they are very good.

    You won't be disappointed.

    there a good tyre mate,least you dint go for a tyre named EVENT i bought a pair for the front of my vec b a couple of years ago and it felt like they were going to come off the rims if you went round a corner at more than 20mph.

    Presumably the 91Y XL
    The only downside is that they may be maufactured in Korea, which can result in a rather soft compound
    However, to get round this Kumho design the tyres with a higher treadwear ratio
    As a result, when these tyres get to 2mm and below this can result in them wearing out VERY quickly

    Apart from that, they rate almost identical (in terms of value for money) to the main brands [70% compared to the Vrederstein / Good Year at 90%]

    An alternative is to look for the Kumho KU19
    This is an assymetric rather than directional (KU31)
    Equally, ask for the 97Y XL KU31
    This tyre DOES exist and is rock hard, with an even higher treadwear ratio
    This is a hard compound tyre, so can give poorer performance in the wet and slightly higher road noise, but will last about 20% longer (approx 3000 miles)
