Khumo Ecsta something or others on mine

Limited choice of tyres because of R16 45 205 size I am running.

No problems with these tyres at all, grip all the time

I'm surprised at the Kumho comments actually, I had problems with them spinning up too easily and front end sliding out terribly, those were on 14s though.

When a 1.4 Carb'd CVH goes sideways, you know there's something wrong :lol:

I have some Aurora Radial K103's on the front of the GTi-6. they do 'ok' in the dry for a budget tyre, and are pure death in the wet. Eagle NCT 5's on the back. Can't really comment on them though.

I think mine are only good because they are R16 205 40, so nice and grippy 8-)

I have eagles on the Rallye, Brilliant in the Dry and i personally think there better than Toyo's in the wet, plus they seem to last longer! :thumbsup:

Fook Knows whats on the Impreza, What ever St ledger Subaru Fit :lol: Daren't look to see how much some Eagles in 18" Low profile tyres are! :doh:
