If they weren't so damn expensive, I'd go for Michelins.

Michelin claimed that the track was too dangerous for cars equipped with Michelin Tyres after cars started smacking into the wall at corner 13. Michelin asked the FIA to introduce a chicane to slow the cars down, but was refused. Michelin threatened to boycott the race, and it came down to it in the end, only 6 cars drove, all 6 with Bridgestones.

Ive just got some 205/40/17 Pilot Sports for 115 each, cheap as chips Not got them on yet, not driven the car for the last week. only done 20miles since PVS!

Yoko AVS Sports are just too soft, thought id give these a go, only time will tell how good they are, but hopefully last a little better than the Yoko's!
