Just replaced mine for £369 fitted Southall tyres. 225/45 17 on the front and 245/40 17 on the rear. Asymmetric 3 though not 5
I i found out that the side wall is super thin even for extra load more like a baloon type tyre. That tells me it won't corner as stable as the old ones and it will be far easier to damage them....why on earth engineers keep pushing the" limits " out of tyre efficiency when they had an amazing tyre and now keep making it worse i am looking for different brand and tyres next year and it probably won't be goodyear anymore. I hate that two tyre buy just to sample/test it..
I read somewhere that it was something to do with the number 4 being had luck across Asia. The assy 5 is really only just now being introduced. I got assy 3's on the rear at the end of Feb as it was only a couple of retailers that had the 5's in stock with no ratings/spec for them. It seems that within the last month pretty much everywhere is stocking them now. Supposedly they're an improvement in the wet over the 3's.
Assymetric 2 tyres were amazing damn you good year.. Assymetric 3 not so good in wet anymore but last a bit longer then a year. Now wtf is assymetric 5? When did that happen? I literally just fitted the 3rd ones again after long thinking and dreaming about 2gen one ehh miss them. How do these compare with the previous ones? And where did the 4th ones go? Why the jump?
No. It's only Just Tyres, F1 Autocentres, and HiQ I think, plus a few independent garages.
