    Default Nankang NS-2R or other?

    Need a couple of tyres up front for the VXR. I currently have the Conti Sport Contacts and they’re coming to the end of their life now. In all honestly in the dry 2nd gear sometimes third the car struggles to put the power down (300bhp) I’ve been looking at the Nankang NS-2Rs as they are 160 for 2 (180 compound as the 120 is a nightmare to find) has anyone got any experience with these? What are they like for this time of year? The other option is buy a set of Rainsport 3s

    The car isn’t my daily work hack (got my van for that) And i only use the VXR for social. Are the NS2R lethal in the winter months or okay? Would they be recommended over the RS3? Reason I ask these will see me into next year when the weather improves. Will I regret not buying the NS2R over say the Rainsports when the roads are dry as I have no experience with either tyre

    TIA

    I have 40 mile each way drive to Manchester / back each day across the Grane Road (moor) in the rain and sometimes snow. I opted for the rainsport 3's. had them on for a few weeks now and no issues - or snow yet !!

    I was thinking about RS3's or the Kumho PS71s - the uniroyals are about £14 more expensive per tyre - worth it?

    I'm going to be fitting Uniroyal Rainspot 3 this week to my VXR I've been told they are a great tyre by a fitter. Hopefully they will be as good as the Michelins were.
    I got around 17K out of the Michelins driving not too mad.

    £160:00 for two tyres....... Would you trust them, I've just gone for Unirpyal Rainsport 3's fitting them in next few days. To be honest I wouldn't trust £80:00 tyres on my 15 Plate car. Always go Middle of the road as a guide

    When the beast from the East was here last years I scrubbed my front tyres down quite a bit in just two weeks, Not impressed with the Michelins there.
