I have a standard R33 GTR what tyres do people recommend? I'm looking at the best compromise between price, tyre life and performance.

F1's

It's hard to beat Goodyear F1's for all round ability (good wet/dry compromise) and they don't cost a fortune either. Some other tyres have better dry handling and some better wet but I personally think they have got the balance perfect for road driving in UK weather.

i just ordered some eagle F1's for mine

I had hoped to get the Toyo's from Richard bell, but my woman insisted i save some money and buy the cheaper ones from Mytyres.

i don't think they will actually come, in which case i found lisa at Rising sun (richard bell) very helpful, and not too pricey either

All my previous cars had FALKEN tyres but not too sure for the SKYLINE application yet as I currently have YOKOHAMAS which the car came with.

Got F1's here to, not really had any problems with them, also got them on the front of dads gtst and got a pair going on mums GTO TT.
Got the last pair from mytyres.co.uk, cheap and delivered almost a week before they were supposed to.

Toyo T1S or the newer T1R's for me. Cheaper than the Goodyears, yet some consider them more durable. They have good levels of grip & tyre life as well.

have to say im a tyre fitter and nothing else for me but the goodyear f1 they just redesigned it to (f1 gsd3 ) so they last a bit longer too . This link might be some help to you there are other tyre tests on the left hand side of the link just so you can compare . Hope it helps

I'we got the Nismo LM GT rims - not soure how wide they are. I read somewhere that they came in both 9.5 and 10.5 inch. I would expect mine to be 9.5 if this is the case. Previous owner had 255/35s fitted - they where well stretched by my measures (almost drift style). :rolleyes:

I'll probably go for the F1's GSD3, but I'm also considering the Conti SportContact 2 - they look awsome and are worshipped by those few I have seen using them. Anyone tried them on a Skyline?

Im thinking of buying NISMO LM GT MAG to my car, they any come in 10"-18" and they recomend 275/35-18" tires for them. I have a Set of 18" BBS LM gold senter today :)
