    Smile 215x40x17 tyres that are hard wearing???

    Not T1R's or F1's. Price not a problem.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers, Steve.

    Pirreli P6000s are hard wearing but they aren't overly grippy.
    Continental Sport Contacts about 1/2 way between the two.

    Had some Federal S595 Super Steels on the coupe and they were quite grippy and wore well too.

    There are some new Avon ZZ3's on ebay at a good price, I found them to be good for what they are.
