I've been through several makes of tyres over the 10 years I had my 2.0 cloverleaf, but I'm just curious what other owners are running, I've been quite happy with Yokohama C Drive, and the last set I tried were Firestone SZ90 which seem ok too.

welcome along duemila

you've taken your time to join us then!!

I'm running Toyo Proxes 1R all round on the 146.gif , as the car came with two on already.

They've proven really good actually in these wintry moments- I discovered (on an ill advised journey before New Year) that I was on the motorway in some fairly serious snow (couldn't see the road anymore) and all the traffic slowed right down- and I realised I had become the fastest car on the road! (at 45mph)

But that might be due to steering feel also- of which the tyres play a big part of course...

I'm running BF Goodrich g-forcers on the rears and Nankangs on the front. The fronts were some original g-force BFs which were cracked after 3 years of being in the garage. When I went to do the tracking on the car the tyre people notice they were worn on the inside and therefore could not do the laser tracking so I brought some Nankangs as replacements.

The tyres I've got on my OZ supperleggeras are Hankooks.

Hi All.
i have had a few different tires on the 145/146.

Toyo T1r Good tire but directional and tram line.
Toyo R1R Awsome track day tire but wear fast and are $$ pressures hard to sort out.
Dunlop Direzza star spec2 current control tire for our race series cheap last well and very grippy and work well in the wet.
Nitto Neogen these were the last set of road tires i have had miles better than the toyo T1r's they are a asymmetrical tire so no tram line effect and very quiet. These are my go to tire now.
i also have some Goodyear Eagel F1 aysmetrical3 (German made) on the GT but would buy the Nitto Neogens again over these .

Hope this helps.
Cheers Steve

Interesting, my fronts used to wear badly on the inside, I replaced my front lower wishbones and never had a problem since,

Road tires - can't go too wrong with Toyo T1Rs for price and performance.

Track day - I've used Federal 595 RSR's and Nankang NS-2R's. Both good...Nankangs probably wear a bit better on the edges as a squarer tire. I just buy whats on offer.

All on original 15" alloys.
