as long as the load and speed ratio's are decent on them, then they good.

Try the Bridgestones Potenza's Re002.....(good for the price) :like:

I don't think I would ever buy Toyo T1 Sport Proxes again...... they good tyres but mileage is bad and the uneven wear and tear are not that grand as well.


i tried the toyo proxes sport on my fk2 .. felt like driving on an oily and wet road lol
it transformed my Type r into a unbalance car with extremely poor traction (esp light came on in 3rd on a dry road under full throttle)
changed them in a week... to conti sport contact 6 (factory specd) and the car was back to normal

the nexen is a budget tyre .. expect budget performance.
dont ever skimp on tyres.. it is one of the most important things keeping you safe on the road.
rather save up and buy a good set and stick to the top name brands

aint that the truth.
i just put on Conti sport contact 5, as they do not have the 6 in my puny size of 225/45/17 - really sharpened the car up and improved steering feel compared to my old F1 asymetric 2's.

My Polo is a 1.2TSi it hits 0-100 in 2 weeks those tyres are perfect on my car :transform: :rofl: :rofl:

My Polo is currently on little over 49000K and the tyres are still about 30% life left

2 tyres the full life span of the car mileage 49000Km and 2 I bought about 6000 km's into driving with the old 2..... so they should be about 55000km....
