    Hey all, any one used them before with 18s?

    The new PS2s are too pricey and I prefer the tread pattern on the older version.

    Anyway, I have a chance to get the originals fitted and balanced for £120 each and wanted some opinions on grip/performance, price and tyre wear.

    Thanks.

    Would look at either Eagle F1 or Toyo Proxe T1R

    Thats cheap but Im not feeling them.


    I've had the F1s previously on 17s which I thought were quality although I fancy something different now and F1s cost more.

    Not sure about the Toyo's, the reviews Ive read are not great.

    Thanks although there is no way I would pay that much for 18s.

    Can you elaborate on their greatness as I seriously considered these at £400 fully fitted but once the Michelins were available I had second thoughts.

    What are they like in the wet? Noise levels?

    Cheers mate.

    They offer excellent grip in the dry, the best tyres ive personally used, obviously not as good in the wet but perfectly ok on an S3 with its Haldex 4WD not much worse than Goodyear F1's ive had in the past. Noise levels are excellent imo and the wear rate is also good, a massive improvement over Yokos of the past ive used (A510, A520's etc). I definately recomend them as the best tyre for the S3 imo, and i know a few other S3 owners who agree.
