Hey guys, had torential rain here today.....setting off steady has even been a nightmare, i know its been greasy because it hasnt rained for a while here.
But at the point of setting off to turn today had only just started turning with the clutch slipping still the front end was slippin out at about 5-10mph through a 90 degree bend.....set off at the next junction dipping the clutch 3 times to regain grip.
If id have been harsh on the throttle then fair enough....i wouldnt complain.....but i dont like to think what would happen in the wet if i needed to stop quick!
The tires are pretty grippy in the dry though....theres 3 Darkhorse tyres on atm and a Mangoo :S the Darkhorse ones have about 2.5mm tread left.
Looking into putting some decent tyres on this weekend.....dont think im putting alloys on it for a while now.....and if i did go to alloys id probably have tyres switched over.
So my question to you ppl is what type of tyre do you recommend....im running on 195/50/R15 tyres atm and intend to keep the same size tyres on.
Been looking at Bridgestone Potenza RE720 tyres.....as they are rated by ReinFest on mytyres.co.uk to have exceptional grip in the dry and very good grip in the wet, braking and cornering.....the tyres are £31.70 a corner inc VAT and P+P but i would need them fitting.
Any other tyres out there that have exceptional handling characteristics in both wet and dry and in braking conditions be it steady or harsh in the worst case scenario.
Many Thnx In Advance!
