    You running 18's? This forum seems to be very pro PS4S's (pilot sport 4s) but they are a premium tyre so don't tend to be cheap... I've also seen good reviews on the rain sport 3 tyres...

    I always ran PS4s on my FR+ and loved them! Cheap compared to the 19s we have to buy. :D

    Depends on your driving style but I've always thought Pirelli P Zero's were pretty good for me.They're not too expensive in comparison. I'm currently running Dunlops; they're okay, but don't tend to be as grippy as the Pirelli's. My pockets aren't deep enough for Michelin tyres.

    Toyo have recently released the TR-1, by all accounts a decent tyre at a really good price.

    PS4S are 10% off at Kwik fit, £130 fitted for 19” since I’ve had them I’d struggle to buy another tyre for fronts, the grip is leaps away from the usual tyres I would go for.

    I just put PS4S with the kwikfit deal on the front to replace continental contact 6s . They are incredible , steering feels lighter and more nimble and the grip is amazing.

    Personally I like Goodyear eagles and michelins, but if you are after a Midrange the Falken FK510 gets my vote (They are certainly better than the uniroyal RS3)

    I've had both Nankang NS2-R's on mine and now PS4s. The Nankangs are a track orientated tyre and wear really well for a soft compount. Grip really well, and give loads of feedback. They have a very still sidewall, and square shoulder so dont wear as badly if your pushing on in corners. Wet grip is surprisingly good for a semi-slick. The only downside is they are REALLY loud and a bit more crashy over bumps.

    PS4s are a more compient and give a quieter and more compient ride.

    I’ve always put Dunlop sports maxx Rt on my K1 and think they’re great. Really good grip in both dry and wet
