Sorry only had Michelin PSS, Dunlop Sport Maxx & tomorrow will have PS4S on it. Verbal recommendations from a tried & tested community is worth its weight in gold when getting 430bhp/600nm to the ground & through the twisties in winter Image
Cheers maffa. Think I'm going for eagle F1's. Anything will be better than the contis that are on it now tbh.

I’ve Asymmetric 2’s on the Mini’s road wheels & they’re not bad. Asymmetric 3’s are meant to be better. Not sure on a Merc 45 though?

Saying that maybe not the latest. I’ll PM you.

Cars booked in for the gearbox noise in the new year. Noticed it after the service and thought best get it looked at now rather than later!

In for its first MOT today. Found that both front tyres have cracked on the inside wall.
These are Michelin’s fitted only 14 months ago. 10k miles. Guess I’ll try for a warranty on these. Ridiculous.

I had Toyo proxies on my 4x4 scoobie for 10 years. They last around 16k miles but for £100 a piece fitted I can't compliment them enough. Just put some on the A45 so will see how they fair. Note: these are directional... No swapping left and right, only backs to fronts.

I got toyo proxies on my A45 currently and can’t fault them so far! Not saying there the best out there but they are decent
