    Thoughts on Road Tyre's makes and models ?

    been running on Nankang ns2r this year
    noisy , primeval , but effective..

    Old question, any new options worth a look ?

    I have Michelin PS4, love them. They perform better than the Primacy 4 I had on before

    Allays used continentals sports contact , the ns2r came 'new' with a set of wheels , much more grip than the Cont ..
    wet / cold , may be less , still driving 40 mile round trips , A.& M way , wet / salt seems predicable
    just need to press on with them -) yes big change wet/dry , probably more noticeable with the enhanced dry grip ?

    Primeval , probably the best description , ns2r, loud rumble , one post complains of changing wheel bearings
    ..I had the same thoughts , very little bump softening , as the video says,
    hard heavy steering , and with the cut pattern no block shuffle

    catch 22 , smooth and ooze , or bumpy and rash

    sense would put ps4 on the 17 winter
    and nsr2 on the 18 summer ?

    I thought this too with the wheel bearing comment they just need to be swapped front and back I think, sounds like a logical idea

    Had mine on the ramps, checking the bearings , the vibration is quite pronounced , but, pretty impressive
    performance , with no tread blocks , just the cut pattern and heavy side walls , the steering is precise , with the car set -25mm
    koni coilovers , its not really set up for a smooth ride , with the re-map, actually is quite lively , standard
    power level was a touch under par for the grip , gave a very 'stuck' feel
