have some new wheels arriving and they need boots looking at 245/40/18's on 8.5J rims My toss up is between: Michelin Pilot Sports - been recommended by a friend, got 20k miles out of his, good grip, quiet etc, coming in around £170 a corner Goodyear Eagles GSD3 - had them before, thought they were very good in the wet and dry but a bit sketchy when seriously cold in ice and snow - comes in £160 a corner Toyo Proxe TR1 - never had them, no real personal recommendation, heard good things about them, know lots of people use them on tracks about £140-150 each. need grip, lots of it, I like corners, its 4WD and I use it. not too worried about getting "18 months and 25k" out of them if they a very good, so long as they do 12-15k I will be happy. have michelin Pilot's of some description on now and they are good but I don't see the huge longevity that the other Michelin model claims, mine shouldered pretty quickly but are pretty grippy. I had Pirelli P6000's. wouldn't use them as a crash barrier on a track they were so bad, like driving on soap! Anyone got some real experiences of the tyres above or any alternatives. don't really want to drop £600 on a complete whim!
