    16" tyre availability

    Ola Ben,

    Bit of a query really. In the not too distant future I'll be looking at updating the tyres on my wheels. At the moment I'm running some unknown things.

    What can you get hold of in terms of high performance/track in the following flavour: 225/50/16 and 245/45/16?

    Tyre size is pretty fixed as they are perfect size.

    Cheers,
    Paul

    245/45/16 Yokohama dont list a single tyre in that size - so they're going to be a struggle to get a good tyre I think...

    Having said that 245/45/16 Toyo list the R888 in GG compound and 225/50/16 R888s come in GG compound as well.

    Both I believe are in stock.

    Front: 147.75+VAT each
    Rear: 135.23+VAT each

    I dont think many others are likely to be available in your sizes.

    Cheers for the prompt reply Ben, I did think that R888's were the only track tyre option. Not really sure if I want to run them though due to their low tread, wear rate and grip in the wet on the road.

    Oh well, back to searching. I think I may have to swallow the cost and go for some Bridgestone Potenza S02's

    Something like those wouldn't be a bad shout, but those sizes are somewhat limiting I am sorry to say
