The Toyo tyres are fitted and they seem equally as good as the P6000 Pirelli tyres that came off so I'm over the moon with them.

Mind you when I said I'm not a tyre snob I borrowed my fathers car the other day which is a low mileage A class which drives spot on apart from having a set of Wanli tyres fitted to it and the only thing that lets the car down is those horrible tyres as they make an awful noise on the A roads and the handling in the wet is horrible on them.

I think the tyres are made of plastic not rubber.

Glad you are happy, mate! Some people will use anything and not notice or care that they sound hideous and do not grip etc. Amazing, really.

I have a cheapo set of 17" rims here with almost new Accelera Alpha's on, and they are hilariously dodgy, The definition of plastic!
They came on a car, and when I was driving it home on a slightly damp day, it was wanting to understeer and oversteer, four wheel slide etc at the slowest of speeds.


Would not recommend, yet someone on here said they were great. I can't see it!

I've got the CF2's on the Corolla, seem brilliant to be honest.
Steer clear of the T1R's as they are shite in the wet..

Had Proxes T1Rs on my old E30 and thought they were very good for the money. Weren't phased by a few laps of the ring but showed their limitations on a flooded autobahn in the worst rain I've ever seen on the way home. I can't say how good a more dedicated rain tyre would have been but I like them. If you think they're shit, try a pair of Fulda Y2000s on your rear axle for a bit of perspective

Is this not just a case of the big players wanting something to cover all price points, but not wanting their "premium" brand name associated with the really crap tyres? Mostly offering high mileage and little traction.


Continental make Barum tyres, I've had both the Bravuris and Brilliantis. One offered predictable grip that would progressively slip when pushed, the other was OK in the dry, but awful in the wet.


Neither were as good as the Continental branded tyres I have used, but they were all used on different cars so I am not sure it's a fair comparison to say which is better.
