Tyres - Yoko's Prada Spec 2's - What are they like?.

Seems these tyres are ridiculously cheap at the moment - on ebay, 4 can be had for 170 (195/50/15's).

Anyone had any experience of them on small, lightweight kit cars?.

I tried them only bought them because i thought the tread looked good

Wasn't overly impressed seemed less grippy than my old tyers so put them on my road car instead and went back to Toyo T1R'S on the kit car but that's just my personal opinion ..

yes the compound is a little hard for light cars,
+1 for toyo t1r as a budget option

Got them on my tintop not bad in the dry but bloody awful in the wet, so my personal opinion i wouldn't recommend them.

Daughter had a set on her old Fiat Bravo, yes sexy tread pattern and good alround on that light little car. Tremendous value then and now by the looks of it.

Would recommend on a normal road car but may not be grippy enough for very light kit car.

Many thanks all......looks like they are not for me, would not want to compromise on a new build.
