    hey all,

    i need to replace all 4 tyres shortly and have a budget of 300 to 350 , ive been looking at toyo proxes t1-r but after the usual pub banter have been told these may not be the best, can anyone make another good recommendations in that price range.

    cheers

    Size of the tyres required would be extremely helpful ;)

    Is that £300- £350 also include the fitting, balancing and disposal costs?

    Remember that tracking will also be worth getting done once the 4 new tyres have been fitted.

    i have falkens on mine, i think if you get a common tyre size in these you can get them for around 300-400, not sure if thats any help but maybe worth looking into

    I had T1-R's on the S3, they were gash - avoid. If they're 18's you're after I think you'll struggle to find a decent wet weather tyre for that money, for the lardy S3, fitted (for four).

    currently got linglongsunwang tyres on the S3 lol, thinking of replacing with federal 595-rsr or similar.
    Got falken ze914 on the ST, they're good for the money. Although wet weather is v understeer prone, but I've never ever had a tyre that's impressed me in the wet.

    Bit more info on how you use your car might help with recommendations. Annual mileage, driving style?
