Post by 91hatchligon »

I'm looking to get new tires for my 16s
What tires are you running and what do you think about them?

Sort of depends on how you plan to use the car what tires you should get. I have Toyo R1R's on mh 15's and they just kick ass for what they're made for.

That is a beautiful tire! though I'm not sure i want to spend that much money on tires. Ugh... i will probably buy the cheaper ones.

They are damn good, as I recall though the price jumped a good deal from 15" to 16". Unless you do a lot of spirited driving or track days I'd probably keep clear of these. Now that said, I've had mine for a while now and they've been holding up well.


Sorry for the late reply, I was in the hospital

Michelin Defender, or whatever its successor is. Been running Michelin's since my first car, an MGA. That was back in '69. :o They wear like iron and have excellent grip

My friend just tried a new set of cheaper sport tires on the track on Thursday. He was positively surprised. I can't recall what brand they were but I'll ask. I had to sit the session out because I've got a 15cm scar on my lower abdomen and track driving does not go well with that :/

What tires did you buy for your wife? I recently bought a set of Toyo Tires Extensa HP II for my 1991 Honda Civic DX. It's the best all-season tires that I ever bought for my Civic.
