I agree with Dai, the 195/50/15s give a big improvement over 185/60/14s while keeping the fun element.
Tyre choice is important too though.

Re: Everyone loves tyre threads!

right, regardless of size, goodyear eagle f1's!

they are on a par with the very best (cos they are the best) in the dry and they out perform every other tyre (performance all weather tyres) in the wet by a mile!

i tried them after someone said that my p7000 were not up to the job when they had burnt out. so i got some f1's.. 6 cars later i have never looked back!

they work very well in the dry and i often use them for track days etc. (not much good for drifting tho.. too much grip)
the only slight down side is they are quite expensive and if you use them hard they dont last as long as some others due to the slimmer tread pattern. but i still get about 8-10k out of a set on my 4wd cars and about 6-8k out of the fronts on my 2wd cars.

you cant have the best grip on the road and have your tyres last forever!

please do try them before spending you moeny one something else!


if life was easy, everyone would do it.
