Goodyear eagle F1's or Bridgestone RE050's or Veredstein Ultrac Sensata are all good options.

What size are you looking at? They have 235/45/17 T1R's in stock.

i wasnt a fan of the verdestein's (not sure why just didnt feel right)
i find the toyo's better (feel confident when driving the car )
i also found the falken fk452 a very good all round tyre (great price also )

looking for 225/45/17 as they are standard size.. Thanks for the offer of the 888's but they would be a more track day tyre. Just looking there on web what about the hankook k110 ventus evo

potenza 050a all day long probably one of the best all round tyres on the market. but not cheap at 150 a corner or so

Eagle F1 asym are a great tyre in any condition.
The new potenza tyre is getting rave reviews also.

Can confirm that Goodyear f1 asym 2
are excellent tyre, serious grip in dry and wet and that's on Type R.
590 all in fitted n balanced.

Their soft wearing tyres, their only on 3 weeks.
Would be thinking 10k miles so see them out, depending on driving style.
Track days would shorten that again. But that's all that keeps you connected to the
road is your tyres. Can be the difference in having a tip or avoiding one..
So I don't mind the sacrificing getting less milage from them.

god 10k is bad. I get up on 18-20k miles on the toyos. But the T1R's are no more they have been replaced with the T1 Sport I've since been told
