How do you get these fitted?


1. Take the wheel off your car in the usual fashion.
2. Take your old tyre off the wheel (a Stanley knife will do nicely).
3. Prop the bare wheel up against a wall with the outer face facing you (or even better a window cill, so it will be at the right height).
4. Holding the new tyre in your arms, with the hole in the middle facing the wheel, run at your wheel as fast as you can. The tyre will pop straight on.
at just over £40 a tyre this is a bargain for premium tyres!
I would pay the extra for the Uniroyal tyres, good grip wet or dry.

Toyo are great but I hear alot of people saying they are more suited to lighter weight cars as the side walls are quite flexible ,I have them on an MR2 Roadster and they are a good grippy tyre.
I would pay the extra for the Uniroyal tyres, good grip wet or dry.
For the Uniroyal, buy now and store for later. I doubt this price will return.
I required only one tyre due to a puncture on the outer tread. Annoyed as i only changed all four 6 months ago.
Purchase a single for £49.19. A good deal, even at this price.

Fitted 4 TR1 last year in a similar size, wet grip is terrible. Uniroyals have been ordered to replace them.
I've had Toyo TR1s on my mini for the last 5k miles and not had any problems with them.
Rub flat ?

The Toyo T1R was a mixed bag, but overall I'd say it wasn't a good tyre when you consider it is marketed as a high performance tyre. Dry grip is very good, but they are too soft a compound and burn out quickly under hard driving. The sidewalls flex too much and give a dull steering response. Maybe on a lightweight sports car with stiff suspension they balance out well. I personally go for a Hankook Ventus, but Cooper, Uniroyal, or even Kumho do good midrange performance tyres.
Gosh, cant find 215 55 17 . My front 2 are getting cracks so will need changing soon.
Is any good deal for tyres 235 40 18" ? Please

Ring up garages and ask for quotes on fitting and balancing.
Thank you Dan_Mitch for link
Had these on my car for past few years always get the for £110 for 2 and £10 to fit so £60 fitted and far better than anything g else that price range so at this price it’s a bargain.. I’ve used code though on series 5
I needed 195/65/15 and they are not there

These are the newly released tyres. Do you have these exact same tread or the old ones? These came out this summer.

These are different. You sure it wasn't T1R? The TR1s were not released last year.
It's frustrating that my tyres are staggered.
Do these come as run flats?
I recommend the UniRoyal Rainsports they are good in the wet!

Frazer, how much stagger do you have? You could get away with a little stretch if its not too much..

45's would also fit fine if you have 55's.

It's all going to end in disaster.

They’re a mid range tyre. Far from premium
Had T1R on my old Civic. Handled great in the dry. However the noise they made was horrendous. And they were so soft they didn’t last long at all

Hopefully they’ve sorted that with these TR1 tyres.

I've got some of these Toyo Proxes tyres - not sure they're premium quality, but they are good for the price. I paid £220 for four, fitted at a local tyre outlet.

Heat for the price BTW, but I have to agree with comments by Dekard97, I fitted a set of Toyo's on my VW Bora 1.9TDi, too soft and lasted less than 10,000 miles on the front and rears faired little better (from Blackcircles).

Heard good things about them.

To be fair I put Landsail LS588 on after a few recommendations on my Civic Type R. £150 delivered for all 4 new. They were much better than the Toyos and so much quieter. My god the peace in the car after I put them on.

£20 a tyre is the going rate, maybe less for all four?
