Toyo. Proxes T1R i use on all my daily's or r888's for track/race Dave. I have tried other's but always rated the Toyo's over the rest.

The 888's only come in a 50 profile as do most other track tyres.

I have Proxes on most of my cars but they are not really a proper track tyre like the
888 or A048 etc.

Good luck as I couldn't find any! I'm constrained by list 1a in my class, but even so I've had to settle on 195/50/15's for my track wheels. I wanted AD08's but they've been superseded by AD08R's which are list 1b, so I've had to settle on Parada Spec 2's.

I understand its only on full lock that the 50 profiles rub, but if you're dead set on 45's then I reckon the Goodyear Eagle f1's are the best of the bunch but aren't pure track tyres (they're not bad on track though!).

Garry runs 50's on his rally car, 10mm spacers, or the proper tyres are 185 585 15 or 200 580 15 IIRC!

Mix of Kumho, Dunlop and some very old Michelin TB's, and silverstone wets.

Got a few odd R1R's but they didn't cut it, far too flexible though the rubber was ok.

The only 195/45/15 you'll get is the Avon CR500 radial, the Avon ACB10 is a crossply (7-22-15) which equates to a 195/45/15 as well.
I'd recommend a 7" rim for either.

You'd have to get a List 1A tyre and buff it to get anywhere near the performance of a 1B.
The lads at Combe get good performance from buffed 1A's.

AD08's are the tyre of choice for those boys at Combe! If you can still get AD08's from somewhere you may be able to use them for up to 3 years, Combe regs say so...

Soo, this brings back the decision for the best 1A tyre, T1R's or Spec2's? Or Conti's? Anyone tried the Dunlop Sport Maxx's?

Sorry Dave didn't think you'd mind 50's. I thought you where running 17's or are they for another car? Seeing as you have more decent car's than the rest of us!

Ah if it's a golf I'd go for the 50's then! I've always run them on mk1's and mk2's, yes they are a tad large for the mk1 but they fit the arches fine and get the better/cheaper choice of tyres plus as a bonus they ride better!

If you want a sticky road/track tyre for reasonable money my choice would be either the T R1R's or the Khumo V70's, both come in around 300 notes a set.

I think 50's look too big on a mk1.

Where do people buy there track tyres? Camskill don't seem to have the variety they once had.
