        Would say if thay are quite cheap than may be not, but not use uniroyal for some years thay did make good wet weather tyre at one time. For all your tuning needs

              I second the Toyo's, Had an M5 before my Van with windows..... VXR

              They were way better then the dunlops and pirellis in the wet and dry on the back.

              They dtill broke loos under the strain but were alot better at getting the power down.

              Great tyres and Great price.

              I will be fitting them to my van when the time comes....

              around 3k the ways things are going.

                I am deff going with the Toyo's on the change, i know they maybe more money but I feel they just offer the best solution to grip and power transfer.

                    Driven a few fast cars with Goodyear Eagle F1's, and the handling has been outstanding. Even when otherl tyres would lose grip accelerating out of a corner the F1's just haul the car round. A bit soft, so depends on your driving as to how long they will last!

                    Also the Pirelli P1's are a good choice.

                      the thing is with tyres
                      is either loads of grip or not.

                      Loads of grip and wear out quick.
                      no grip last for ever and a day.

                      Toyo are one of the best upper mid range tyres i have every had.

                      Wanted Yokahama's but their are too soft but well grippy not good for a VXR.

               seem to be the best price for Toyo Proxes and apparently do try to better their quote price of £ 133.80 on the phone.
                        I can't vouch for that as gospel as i aint re- negotiated with vauxhall to increase their £200 voucher offer to a couple of Proxes yet.
                        Dont think mytyres will take a vauxhall "gift" voucher somehow

                          Ok Just ordered the Toyo`s. They seem to be the prefered replacement.

                          Thanks for the advise.

                            Good man

                            was it from my tyre site

                            dont worry if thet dont feel that good for a start give them about 1000 miles to scrub in then you'll find them very good.
