    I thought this was a good thread from the old forums. Gives people some advice on what tyres to choose for the skids.

    Here is what i use:

    Front - 185/60/14 Bridgestone RE001
    Rear - 185/60/14 Nankang 611

    I find the nankangs provide grip and they last for a while. I've only had one delaminate so far (out of about 10) because i forgot to swap them left to right. But yeah, i rate them.

    Federal 595 195/45/16 front and rear..

    But just started running Hero 195/55/16 on the rears and they have a tad more grip, but you have to run them backwards at the moment cause the lap is facing the wrong way and they will just delam if you run them forward.. Doesn't affect the grip unless its raining..

    Both are awesome tyres and i would greatly recomend...

    do you have sponsorship or get good prices for hero tyres Sam?

    Hit me up for a price on 235/45/17 if you can, I'm keen to try something new.

    595's are perfect for my power to grip ratio at the moment though.

    Re001s on the front.

    Using Goodrides (not sure of the code) on the back. Cheapest 185/60s from my local tyre place.
    Im pretty happy with them, they were damn grippy at first now their starting to loosen up and have a very progressive slide, and look great stretched.
