Interesting. I had 18" V12 in my E39 last summer, ~4mm tread left. Low noise and ok handling. Here tramlining is big problem, and if tires are very stiff driving is quite heavy.
Japanese tires are usually very bad tramliners (is that correct word?) and also noisy when roads are coarse. Now roads are very coarse because of winter and studded tires.I'm using Toyo T1-Sport , good value for money tyre
I found tire test where was Toyo Proxes T1 sport. It was best handling on dry, but very bad on wet. Worst on aquaplaning, below average dry braking and noisy.I have Toyo on my BT,,, and IMO the 1st option ALWAYS....:tonquesmilie:
You mean Dunlop Sportmaxx? Michelin PS2 not available, PS3, Primacy 3, Pirelli P7 cinturato and P-zeros is available.I'm currently running Pirelli P-zeros in 18" which I like. The Michelin PS2 and Continental Sportmaxx are also recommended.
Apologies, I actually meant the continental sport contact.You mean Dunlop Sportmaxx? Michelin PS2 not available, PS3, Primacy 3, Pirelli P7 cinturato and P-zeros is available.
Here Michelin is not very good, in test i mentioned before Michelin was average, even worse than much cheaper Nexen. Also other tests Michelin is usually average or below average.
