I though I'd separate these from the other tyre info, for ease of use. Click on the table.



A number of people have mentioned issues with Toyo tyres since the company moved production to Malaysia. It appears that Malaysian Toyos can have very different handling characteristics from Japanese Toyos.

I wanted to add that if anyone has experience, good or bad, of tyres not on this list, I will be happy to amend this table.:yesnod:

my old eyes have failed to detect a 16" tyre for a TF that will allow me to heed the warnings above in red. There must be a solution

There's lots. :yesnod:
You just need to remember 195/45/16 front, and.215/40/16 rear on TFs. B)
Also this list is not exhaustive and has not been updated in a while.
I'm running uniroyal rainsports and am very happy with them.

Still very happy with my Hankook ventus V12 evo (215/40/16 K120, XL) allround on my Y2001 MGF.

Good grip in dry as well as wet conditions while being just a bit cheaper than the Toyo's (at least here in the netherlands)

I am now running Falken ZE914 XL 215/40.16 tyres all around on my F. Happy with them so far.:broon:

I'm on the same since last August - I much prefer the Falkens to the previous (Japanese) Toyos. The Falkens feel far less 'twitchy' although the initial turn-in is not quite so sharp and feel very good to me for everyday driving.
