    ok im looking into a set of RS4 reps at leigh tyres but they come with federals, I can upgrade to toyos for £100. Ive asked how much f1`s or avon zz3`s will be as well.

    any suggestions on the above do`s or donts.

    also thinking of getting the OEM center caps has anyone fitted these to the leigh reps ????

    federals are /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif and will wear quicker.

    go for the toyos without a doubt!

    better grip and durability

    you will end up paying in the end!

    I have got ZZ3s on my 18s and not bad tyre

    F!s are superb tyres.

    personally I really rate toyos as excellent wet weather grip and we do live in a wet country after all!!

    toyos will not wear out any quicker that the ZZ3s.

    My ZZ3s have been on about 10000 miles and must be half worn if not abit more so are ok

    but the car has not been tracked and not really driven too hard so your call really.

    I guess you pays your way with tyres.

    zz3 are 240 and t1s and t1r 280. but everyone is saying that toyos wear out quicker, but the rating says they are harder wearing. i also have zz3 they have done 10k and still have 6mm left all round, does anyone have toyo's with 10k on there backs? how much tread is left on them?

    The wife has toyos on her golf gti 16v, been on there a year and about 8,000 miles, they look like they will not last much more than another year. They replaced yoko's that had been on for six years and about 30,000 miles

    I've got Michellin Pilot Sport 2's on mine and I think they're better than any other tyre I've ever used (apart from maybe the Bridgestone Potenza S02's that lasted less than 6k miles).
    They're much better than the Toyos in my opinion. Not tried F1's, so cannot comment on those.
