Hi,

How about Kumho or Hankook?
I have used Kumho with Silica compound andthey were great even in wet.
It was cheaper than any other make at the time.
I tried Nagkang and it was like plastic so don't buy them.

I here Toyo is best but could be expensive. If you are doing track days and sprints, may be good but for everyday use Korean tyres are good also.

you need to get yokohama ad08's in 1955015,got them on my race car and worth a second a lap compared to t1r's and ive done around 60 laps on them and they hardly look used compared to t1r's that are soft as shite and nearly worn out in the same amount of lap time

price wise is about the same,just need to have a search around to get them

Cheers for all the recommendations guys. Just need to hunt around and see what i can get now.
I was originally thinking the Toyo T1R's or the Yoko prada spec 2's, but now a few more have been thrown in the mix.
