anyone recommend good tyre brand,
Currently have Bridgestone Turanzas but don't find the grip that great on them for the price and finding they wear a bit quick.

Uniroyal Rainsport 2's or 3's are meant to be great tires from what I've heard but I've never experienced them myself.

I've uniroyal rainsport 2 on the mr2, never once had an issue with understeer/oversteer in rain or sun, must be good considering there's no weight over the front wheels.

Had federal 595s aswell but didn't find them great, they had some "grip issues" on the rear haha

Ran falken 452s aswell for a while and found them great in the dry but not so good in the wet

Running Uni royal rain sports 2 at the moment and they are brilliant..  they are a bit softer compound so wear out a small bit quicker than normal but well worth every penny...

I'm using pirelli pzero nero at the moment and great all rounder. Stiff wall, not wearing quick, not noisy. I was recommended bridge stone adrenaline re002. Suppose to be a smashing tire.

Ive been using Pirelli for the last 18 months. Ive gotten good mileage out of them. I recently gotten continentals. They've got a slightly better rating for grip but Ive yet to fit them so I don't know how they'll be in real life.

think it was uniroyal that were on the superstrut levin i had and that was some car for grip.

Anyone using goodyear eagles?
Looking for something very gripy in dry and wet as the bridgestones aren't hacking it but i find their is some torque in these little t-sports

I have them on the Altezza. Front and back, they wear quicker because of the softer compound. It makes them a lot grippier. Best tyre I've had on the Altezza so far.

For daily driver only Continentals for Me.
Had loads of different brands before...

Project car requires something else, but that's different story.

Had goodyear eagle f1s before they were older ones then out now and found them very good in the dry and ok in the wet. Lasted a long time too to be fair. Newer ones meant to be similar
