Kingsley thats exactly what I've heard. The s-03 are just not as good as the S-02's. They were great tyres.

So looks like its between the Goodyear F1 GSD-3's or Yoko AVS

I have Goodyear Eagle F1's GS-D2's on my R34 and have been very pleased with them. Just bought two new ones (GS-D2's again not D3's) from Micheldever Tyres £298.74 Incl Vat & delivery.

Sorry what a prat. That was for 265/35 ZR18.

That last post was like people who advertise two tyres for sale, plenty tread, fit Ford Escort. Like doh! what bloody size are they you idiot.

Since Henri (Helanto, owner of "the" LHD R32) doesn't seem to post here at all, let me contribute:

Recently I've been helping Henri tune up his R32 for some serious track time. I'm hoping someday (after uni, perhaps? Shouldn't be more than a year or two) to get a GT-R for myself too, which should explain my interest.

Aaanyways, just last week we fitted 255/40R17 Michelin Sport Cups on his R32. (you know, the Porsche Cup official tire) In the dry, the grip is quite something. In the wet though... :eek: but Henri's planning on getting the tires cut for better all-weather performance.

Suffice to say, I no longer wonder why one Viper owner said he parks the car during rain... the GT-R was aquaplaning at ~70mph. Still, for mostly dry weather and sporty driving I'd recommend them over any set of Yokohamas.

Tyres

I had Goodyear F1's (1999 model) on my last R33 GTR, and they were excellent. Especially if it rained. All the feckin' time then! They lasted 12000 miles!

My current R33 has Falken 451's (265 35 18's) and they seem OK, but I prefered the F1's. You can pick 'em up for about £100 each for 17's, not sure bout 18's though.

Toyo's

I have been running Toyo's for almost a year now, done 5000 miles and still not half way through them. I look at what tyres I choose very carefully, but most importantly (I think for UK) what they are like in the wet. The Toyo's produce a large amount of grip in the Dry, Stupid amount infact and in the wet.. Well they are good, I have being doing over 140mph round some nice sweeping bends in the wet and not had any slippage, even in the tighter corners they grip. Aquaplanning.. Don't get this at all they shift the water really well.

I would recommend the Toyo's any day, All I do is drive the tyres hard. I think with the 200sx all of the power is going to the rear wheels so it will eat them alot quicker. I do get my tyres turned though about once or twice a year depending on wear.

I also have a few friends running the Yoko's and they say in the wet their a bit scary.. (Espeacially if its greasy and wet) Don't know this because I havn't had the bottle to spend all that money on a set of tyres that I have been told don't work well in the wet. (Have to take typical UK weather into account)

Hope this helps your decision..
