    toyo proxies T1-R good in the dry but not that good in the wet as they are made in the eastern side of the world their they don't have much rain and people say they are a soft compound and don't last long

    yoko parada spec 2 i was going to get them look good type it in google and it will tell you the review etc...

    Yoko Parada;s are bollox tbh, apart from a funky tread pattern I really dislike them. Bridgestone Potena every SO3 everyday of the week, far far superior tyre.

    toyos i hate to be honest, yokos ive just tested and there also pretyt shocking in the wet... both tyres are fine with loads of grip in the dry, both tyres imo have a good compound and dont wear to quickly, however are soft enough to give good grip and without any real noise on hard cornering. I want to try the pirellis next

    On my own experience

    Yoko A539's are terrible, even with a 1.4 you can't put any power on around a light corner as its understeering

    Best ones I've found Are Michelin Pilot Primacies if they're still available even in the wet they were very good
