Just removed this from a daily. Not particularly funny but definitely a bit daft. Wet grip traction was appalling. 


Also these things which have a dull name but have writing on the tread which I’ve not seen before. 



Landsail have writing on the centre rib*

*Tyre wide enough for such a thing......

More truck tyre goodness! Can’t think of a name? Use you’re ex girlfriend’s name! 


Kelly Springfield (to give her her full name) is now going out with Goodyear. They're an American company, taken over by Goodyear in 1999.

They are responsible for the massive pile of burning tyres seen in the US fly on the wall documentary 'The Simpsons'.

(the burning tyre bit may not be true)

Due to a cockup with deliveries at my local fitters, my new-to-me mk1 Honda CR-V had to have whatever they could lay their hands on in the right size.  That means it's now wearing a set of Blacklions...new one on me and they were super cheap, I was a bit put out at first but actually apart from being a bit noisy, they're actually pretty good, plenty of grip at least and they seem to get OK reviews online.  We'll see how they manage longer term, I guess.  It's not like I'll be taking it to track days, after all.

Having done a few miles in them now, I can confirm that in the dry, they are adequate.  In the wet, they are terrible.  Do not recommend.  Should have gone with the Yokohamas!
