I had Toyo t1r's on my vectra, and fornd them very very good in the wet and excellent in the dry. So would consider toyo again

I would go for Yokos over maxxis any day

my experience of Toyo t1r's..... in the dry absolutely excellent, in the wet average, on the snow, potentially lethal :laugh:

Also toyo's IMO wear super fast.

If you can do 195/45/14.... sorry, it's a total no-brainer IMO. Rainsports.

Thread bump as I've just had to order 2 new tyres to get the punto through it's MOT. Gone for Rainsports as they were on offer at £64 each plus your recommendation of course Mark. So they'd better be good or I'll hunt you down and complain vociferously :twist:

Of course the slight problem is I always get lost when trying to find your lock-up which I've been to several times now so I think you're quite safe :lol:

:lol:

I'm safe on many levels then :lol: ,

They're good tyres, solid at everything (though i suspect the BF Goodrich tyres on the Landy might well be a lot better in mud, but they're kinda designed for that so i'd be worried if they weren't :lol: ).

My experience with them is totally positive and going by the last reviews i read of them, they've all been positive, so i'm fairly confident :lol:

Funnily enough Callum was recommending BF Goodrich to me yesterday but there was an extra days wait for them hence going for the Rainsports. It's bad enough I may not get the car back until tomorrow - definitely couldn't cope not having it until Thursday

Fecking hate stupid tyre sizes

I just put a Hankook on my Betty, not the cheapest out there but reasonable and a damn sight cheaper than the size that fitted my 159 when I had that. I really like them although the road noise can be a bit loud, grip and handling are damn good.

Heard a few good things about Hankooks. I'd be interested to know how you get on with them over time.
