I've heard they are good but I think you need the 120 softer compound ones

I'll check that then.good chance they'll be the right ones because they're coming from someone who ran in a race series who have changed the tyre you have to run this season from last.

I was very close to buying a full set of these.

The general feedback was from tin tops. Good value for money but no R888 or A048.

In the end i snapped up a set of nearly new A048. Which i am glad of because my slim line 185 get a beating on track.

I need some 7" rims





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

I have used the soft compound on several different track cars.
They won`t grip quite aswell as a 888 in the dry but not far off.
They last much longer than 888`s.
In the wet they are very good actually b rated I believe.
They need a decent heat cycle before they`ll grip at all.

I`ve used them on an mx 5 and a Tiger avon and now have a set to use when its wet on my Bike engined phoenix.

To sum up they are a great value all round tyre. And can be used in all conditions, so if you only have one set of wheels ideal.





My name is Simon I`m a trackday addict.

Well if I buy all 8 they're £20 a tyre. So I may well have 4 to pass on at the same price. 195 50 15 I think off the top of my head.

Definately do need scrubbing in before using in the wet, I took mine out for first run of the year last night just as it started raining and was a complete handful on new ns2r's, spinning up in every gear and was super easy to lock up. The ns2r's I ran last year were fine in the wet even with legal limit tread remaining, excepting standing water.

Bargain!
I'm running the 180 compound,so far seem to be a really good tyre on the road.
I see your only just up the road from Oswestry,what engine is in your striker?

Good tyres use mine on road and trackdays do take a bit of warming up Go for the softer compound on a 7 type car

Again, a tin top review but wouldn't want to use them for a track tyre again as they wore very quickly. (500 road miles and 1 day at thruxton took then to canvas). Especially bad as they come with 7/8mm rather than the 5 you get on most track oriented tyres. Good for a fast summer road tyre tho.
Keep an eye out for their new offering the AR1, looks very aggressive.

Look good but not sure about wet road / track use

I run them on my striker track and road and I'm very impressed with them 120 compound which is the soft one done about 600 miles on track and 600miles on the road approx 40 percent worn . Very predicable in the dry and wet /damp better in standing water than 048s or rrrs

I ran the 120 soft compound and very happy with them. Pretty stiff wall and once scrubbed in they're really grippy and predictable in the dry. Wet performance was surprisingly good. In this price band there's not much to compete, I think they're great value and a good all-rounder for a se7en.

Hey guys

Been looking at these tyres, I know you have the 120 compound and the 180, where is a good place to buy them? place I've seen for £55 in 195 55 15 but they are XL which I think would be too stiff for a BEC?

what compounds are you guys running on the road

I got mine from JJC Race and Rally(part of Tweeks I'm pretty sure but they deny it ) pretty sure the 55 profile are only available in 180 compound,50 profile are available in both 180 and 120 compound

I'm running the 195/55 15's on mine,they are a pretty stiff sidewall but for the money they are a great tyre

Are yours XL sidewalls then? as I can't seem to find any in stock that arn't XL, so maybe that's the only option for these tyres!

Must be!

I'll check when I'm home.

What does the XL mean?

Cheers CosKev3 that would be great, XL means "extra load" for heavier cars i guess which is why i wasn't sure if they would be too stiff for our light cars!

FYI I run 205 R888s on a 6.5J (and 225 on a 7J) - it's not ideal but it does work.

Well I spoke with ears motorsport as they have a set on ebay, and they don't say XL, but they don't have any stock doh! he said the trackday tyres 120/180 compound won't be XL as such, but they might be stiffer! :/
