    Default Toyo T1R's

    Following on from this thread I've had a reply from a Wheel company who have given me these prices for the 18" VXR replica's with 3 options for tyres...

    BK999's & avon @ £699 + carriage
    BK999's & toyo T1R @ £770 + carriage
    BK999's & goodyear F1 @ £810 + carriage

    The toyo T1R looks a good tyre, anyone had any experience them ?? or is the avon the one to go for if I go the 18" route??

    T1R is a good tyre, just don't expect much mileage out of them.

    Cheers ZS.. I may go for the avon then,Hmm, decisions, I've only done <4k in my car in the past 18months so mileage won't really be a problem, just after a good Tyre with not a lot of road noise if poss..

    i ran T1-Rs on a mk3 astra. great tyres. had them on it for a year then sold the car but the tyres had hardly any ware on them. vecs are a bit heavyer though but id still pic the toyos but thats only my opinion.
