Well if all goes to plan my car may be wearing some toyos, yoko A539's or goodyear FL gsd's. Local tyre place is having a look for me

So I may be safer slightly


Sub and amp came out today, weight saving might wash the dirt off too to help aerodynamics if the wheather is good on firday

try some Verdesteins or even try Kumos they have come a long way for budget tyres.

However brand new tyres are never that great on track.

Fitted these new Yoko's to my brother Saxo and they were shit for the first 1k now they are awsome!

If it were me I would get a set of Eagle F1's GSD2's and if I had time a set of Michelin Exaltos
