Ive now got Falken FK451's on the front, and about to get a pair for the rear... lovely tyre, good grip, and cheap! - £70 for 235x45x17 from mytyres.co.uk and my local tyre place fits and balances for about £10 the pair

Would you say they were better than the T1-S as I didn't like the look of the new tyres

Tyre replacement

When I got the car it had 2 Michalin Virage tyres from Japan on the rear and 2 Continental something or others on the front. The car was a nightmare in the wet and to some extent very twitchy in the dry.

While the Michalins are used in the Jap touring car circuit I would strongly recomend anyone still running them to BIN them asap.

I was told these tyres were the best thing going and so to aid traction that my GTS didnt seem to have I was going to change to a GTR.

Due to financial considerations (e.g. no toy money left ) I opted to change tyres not change car.

I put Toyo Proxes T1 s on all 4 corners. What a difference Dry weather twitchynes is gone and in the wet it behaves like it did in the dry with my old tyres on!!!

Anyway Toyo Proxes get my vote now. What a diference.

Alas now I would appear to have sheered my 2 outer exhaust manifold bolds and blown the gasket to bits I wonder if thats due to driving a bit harder now

Goodyear Eagle F1's 245/40/18 (to match my fronts for size)

a remarkable £119 each, which is silly cheap IMHO

Trying to decide whether to go for Goodyear F1 GSD3 or Falken FK451..
Traditionally Goodyear is more like hard compound tyres according to my experience from the previous Eagle F1 . Don't really fancy hard compounds now, but just wonder if the new F1 GSD3 has made any changes or not by comparing with the previous?

How about Falken? Never really used them before, but seems very good price.

I voted for Falkens but only becuase they are the only ones Ive used from the list, very good tyres in the dry and wet but heard Goodyears are better?
