Question tyre choice?

hiya all.
I need 3 new tyres for my 99 wagon turbo. It has currently got bridgestone Protenza s03's on it. I really like the tyre type and think it works well but im having real trouble trying to find any replacements. No1 i have tried has got them in stock and they are saying that they cant get hold of them at the moment.
So does anyone no of anywhere in the southwest around the somerset/devon area which stocks these tyres? Or can anyone give me a few suggestions on other possible tyres which i could use?
Someone did suggest to me that michelin pilot sports are a very good tyre to use although they do seem to be a bit more expensive than the bridgestones.

Any help at all would be great. Thanks

Toyo T1R Proxes are a very good tyre.

and you will still need someone to fit these tyres by the way but as long as you are buying new tyres most places don't have a problem with that, my local tyre shop normaly charge me about 20 for a pair.

thanks alot for all ur suggestions. Ive decided to go for the Toyo T1R Proxes.

By the way ive found out now why i was having so much trouble finding those bridgestone tyres. Which is because they have stopped making the s03 pattern now and have replaced it with something else instead but cant remember what they are called though lol

cheers guys and thanks again for your help
