My choice is the TOYO Proxes T1-R

They seem to last longer that the older T1-S

Another source...

I got my Toyos T1Rs (which are excellent wet or dry) from Elite in Rainham, Essex. They did a great job and charged a total of £529 for my size, including balancing, fitting and 4 wheel alignment (£80). Take a look at their website (elitedirect.com) - it's useful.

I've got T1-S's and they're all good..

Going to get T1-R's next time as i think the tread looks better on them :)

Really reasonable price though, which is more than you can say for the Yokohama's..

Not that there's anything wrong with Yokohama's :smokin:

I've personally decided to get a set of Kumho Ecsta SPTs - any negative experiences with them? Have Advan AD07s at the moment but would like something a little better in the wet as well as with better treadwear. Once I get around to getting a second set of rims, I'll go more specialized - all season high performance 265/35R18s and then 255/40R17 track tires, like Yoko A032Rs or Kumho Ecsta V710 slicks.
