I’ve just bought a ‘97 MX5 1.6 and it’s very rear happy, and in turn making it a tad fear inducing when the tyres decide to mimic a slip and slide on hardly damp roads, to try and fix this I’d be looking at replacing the tyres (and checking to make sure the alignment is correct). The...
Im picking up an NC 2010 (with 205, 45, r17) this weekend which has Mazzini ditch finder tyres on it. Needless to say they need to be binned straight away. I've read many posts on tyre recommendations which are leading me towards buying Kumho PS71. I'll be using the car mainly for road...
got a bit of the track bug again and my AD08R are looking a bit threadbare now. ive been looking around and it seems that the market for Fast Road and Track tyres has been battered by a new EU reg on road noise and rolling resistance.
I loved my AD08R but they appear to have been...
Figured we need one place where everyone can post up their aftermarket wheels so we have a library of what they all look like on you cars!
Wheel make, the size, the offset, tyre size and importantly a picture so everyone can see, and no one gets fed up with people...
My mark 1 Mx5 is mostly used on track but I also use if for summer time driving around the South west. probably about a 60/40% split or maybe 70/30%
It's Rotrex supercharged with 275bhp and 208lbft torque.
I am currently running 15x7 rota grids with 195/50/15 Yokohama A048 semi...
I'm looking for a new set of tyres for my NC1 Mx5 to improve the atrocious lack of grip currently.
The car has Pirelli P Zero Nero GT's on it (which came brand new with the car around 4000 miles ago).
To put it bluntly, they're crap.
Massive understeer in all conditions and extreme...
Some help please. My newly purchased Euphonic 1.8 has original tyres on. They have only done 23k miles. But are delaminating. Just some advice please what should I replace them with. Just day to day down the lanes round the town driving.
I've just joined the forum and thought id make a topic on tyres because I need some guidance!
I have a 1990 Eunos that i use for fast road driving, the local hillclimb and i have a track day booked for
the 27th of july (hopefully this is the first of many more). I currently have nankang...
So the http://ox.mx5oc.co.uk/guide-mx5old.htm say the phoenix came with low profile tyres, any ideas of what the replace whats on it now
195/50/r15, are these low profile? sorry I know nothing about tyre sizes
Hey guys - Time has finally come to pick up some new boots for my 2008 NC - It's currently on Evergreen tyres (Came on the car when purchased it, never heard of them, probably budget - Seem to be ok)
I was looking at Kumho 39s, people on here and other forums seem to highly rate the tyre -...
Used the new R888R tyre this weekend at Harewood Speed Hill as we are now on list 1B from the blue book this season
Conditions were cool and damp at times.
I found them to be a big improvement on my Bridgestone RE002
I've used YokoAO48s, Toyo T1Rs and Toyo R1Rs before.
The YOKOs had been my...
I bought a Mk2 mx5 1.6 back in November. I'll be entering a few sprint events in it later this year and I'm considering getting a new set of tyres for it so I was wondering what are the best tyres available to me for Sprinting. I'll be entering in the A1 standard production class so I'm...
Sorry if this has been discussed before, I've had a really good search and almost all the discussions are about the 205/45/17 size on the mk3 sport.
I've got an 07 2.0 mk3 with the 16 inch rims - 205/50/r16. It came with four Avon ZV5's and I don't like them, I drive v carefully in the wet and...
As above, I've had them on my merc c class estate and am very happy with them, but on a much lighter/smaller car I have no experience.
Anybody tried them.
I only use the car for daily driving, sometimes a little spirited. It's coming up to winter so any views?
So, I'm looking at tyres to replace the Cooper Zeon's (whatever they are) on my 1.8 Mk2.5 and I've narrowed it down to four choices, Toyo T1-R, Uniroyal Rainsport 3, Yokohama Parada Spec-2 and the Kumho KU39.
From what I've seen on the forum, the T1-Rs are pretty popular, but I've also read...
L O O K- I recently came across a garage specialising purely in MX5 repair and renovation. My little 16V Sport M2 was in need of much work but the readies weren't ready- so we struck a deal, barter- I shot them a couple of youtube ads and they fixed my car. Doctor MX5 (Julian and Dan) are...
