    Tyres for a Sri-T

    I need a new set of tyres, just wondered what tyres people recommend and any recommended retailers. I used to run toyo's on my old astra but was lucky to get 7000 miles out of them and now I've got double the power I dont think they are an option, I would like good balance between grip and longevity!

    Any help would be appreciated thanks

    Uniroyal Rainsport 2s for me £75 each delivered for 215.40.17

    currently running 225bhp on big massive lardy arsed 5dr turbo and it still grips like *****

    upping the power all the time and they still are the best tyres Ive used to date

    excellent grip in dry and phenomonal in the wet

    im also using those, the only times the car looses grip is when it rolls due to the soft (imo) gsi suspension and a tyre lifts or something

    perfect for the winter ahead though as itll probably rain everyday! lol

    Thanks they look promising do you buy them from anywhere in particular or just where they are cheapest at the time?
