try goodyear f1 asymetrics.. less road noise than the bridgestone potenzas i has on my sti8 and appear to be quite stable under heavy braking. got mine for 96 a corner ..could also try black circle.com.. delivered to a dealer near you for fitting

Are GOODYEAR TYRES / CAR / GOODYEAR F1 GSD3 EAGLE GOODYEAR F 1 GSD 3 - 215/45R17 91Y XL : 76.00 : Car Tyres - MPV Tyres - People Carrier Tyres : R17" - 215/45/17, 215/45 R 17 - these the asymetrics? If so, bit of a bargain, and I need two fronts.

Re: advice on which tyres please

the goodyear aysemetrics I had fitted are not the same as the gsd, which it superceeds. the gsd has roughly the same tread pattern as the toyo proxes tr1. mine are 225/45 17 so slightly wider and have 3 deep grooves and a smaller one towards the outside of the rim,no doubt helping straight line stability ..they came recommended by a close friend who is in the know at bmtr in birmingham,who supply a lot of racing tyres and I was lucky enough to get a very good discount.
maybe a phone call or quote over the net if your are local to them
