PostPosted: Sat May 20, 2017 6:56 am    Post subject: New rear tyres - thoughts?? Reply with quote

Hi all
I am currently running PS2's all round and I am going to need some new rears soon (fronts will be fine for a while). Wheels are 18s. Rears are 265/40.

I am not bothered about N rated as way past any warranty etc

A quick look on camskill would suggest I have the following choices:
PS2 straight replacement (N rated) - £210 each
MPSS - £175 each
There is then a range of good quality other brands (Pirelli p zero, Bridgestone potenza, Goodyear eagle, Yokohama advan) all for around £140-£150

Interested in thoughts? Are the MPSS the obvious choice here?
I would like the tyres to be comfortable and quiet (within reason) - I suspect all of them will offer the performance I need.
Any downsides with the MPSS - the sticky thread does make some comments about being noisier - is this significant?
Should I be mindful of the PS2 on the front and what will work well with them?

Thanks in advance!

Suspect super sports will have some negatives - usually wet weather stopping or cold temp handling.
Do they bit offer PS4s in that size?

They aren't listed on camskill so I don't think so.
PS4s were my first thought....

But they do PS4 in 265 35. That's 13mm less sidewall by my reckoning.... Probably won't tick my comfort box...
Could I go slightly wider I wonder??

Depends what you want your tyres for, do you drive all year including wet and winter, do you drive hard on the roads etc...

bridgestones and pirellis are also excellent tyres for these cars although don't very popular on this forum Surprised

It's a second car so no to winter and only in bad weather if I get caught out.
I don't drive particularly hard on roads -albeit a little subjective I gues..

Do you have any recommendations?
Thanks
