  • Astra VXR Tyre Thread

    Ok so we get a lot of tyre threads and to be honest what you'll get is a list of the tyres people have fitted but a better way of doing this is to have everyone of us use the following

    Once done then we just need to point everyone to it so they can make their mind up using the collective ratings and factoring in their own planned usage of the car

    So to try it out simply add your rating to it -

    If this works then we can set these up for the other car models

            Ive got them on the front. Will be buying a full set soon. Brilliant grip wet or dry and they have lasted twice as long as the budgets that were on when i got it. Even used them for track time at trax. Really decent price aswell. Only about £300 for a full set of 18s.

                I've 2 Mitsubishi friends using them for quite some time. Both have said they've worn quickly, but there are no quibbles about the grip, wet grip being especially good.
                I've noticed in their cars the wide tyre thread pattern can pick up loose chippings of a certain size and fling them.

                Quick to wear, but cheap to buy. You won't be disappointed by the grip.

                      Rain sports are a very good tyre for the price!


                      • #12
                        That was my thoughts but KU39'S get great rating too and are also A rated for wet.

                            Cheers for that. Always good to get someone's first hand experience.
