    Just a quick recommendation.

    I bought a set of Leon FR wheels that came with a set of Maxxis Premitra tyres. Almost full tread so I thought I'd see how they behaved. Ordinarily I'll buy tyres from the more established brands and I'm very critical of tyres.

    These tyres are excellent and in my opinion a bargain! I've had the chance to push them in both the dry and the wet, they are grippy and predictable with very good resistance to aquaplaning. I was going to say that they are great tyres for the price but to be fair, they are great tyres, period. If someone told me they cost over one-hundred pounds I would believe them.

    For those who don't know, Maxxis are one of the largest tyres manufacturers in the world. In the mountain biking, Maxxis rule the demanding down-hill/free-ride market but, while they are big players in other parts of the world, Maxxis car tyres are not a major part of the UK market. So they are not junk no-brand tyres.

    I know that when these wear out I'll be looking for more. Give them a try.

    I used Maxxis tyres on the bike for years , including many many track days - never a problem with them , may try them on the LCR next.

    I've used Maxxis mountain bike tyres but never thought of car tyres. My local fitters don't stock them,

    If purchased by a Maxxis dealer shop then they also have a puncher guarantee that if they can't repair it they will replace it free if above 80% wear and at a cost below.

    Having heard many good things about Maxxis now I'm tempted to try some..
