    Parada Spec 2's seems the best value for money? 100 a tyre on blackcircles?

    I'd say don't go near michelin PS2's or conti sport 2's mate, I've had both, and whilst the wear rate is very good, they simply cannot cope with the output we have and FWD.

    I've recently changed my eagle F1's for toyo T1R's, and I'm very happy. I'm sure the toyo's are marginally better all round, they inspire more confidence for sure.

    I've always rated yoko very highly, having used nothing but on my mini.

    I'd say the spec 2's or T1R's are both a good bet, although the Toyos will last longer.

    Mine came with Bridgestone Potenzas on them and they seem ok in the conditions at the moment but only had the car 6 weeks so cant comment on their performance until the warm and dry weather kicks in.

    After doing a lot of reading when I needed new front, I went with F1 Assymetrics. Have not done the rears, but will get the same when the time comes. Really decent tyre, although have not got a lot of miles so cant comment on the wear, and the only downside is you need to give them a little time to warm up on cold really mornings.

    I put The new toyo's look interesting, but when I was doing the research, they were failry new, and not enough independant material on them, so decided to give them a miss this time round.
