New found faith in my parada spec 2`s

Never took me car on a track an so generally never get them up to any sort of decent temp/speed where theres sharp enough bends to judge how good they really are,however last night gave em a fairly good evaluation an gotta say i love em,ok still think theyre crap in the wet but in my opinion yoko`s always are.Just need some brakes now an i`ll be a happy bunny

Trouble is generally when i race my mates its generally on straight-ish roads(get a road with too many bends an me brakes arent up to it at a good pace ) and to be fair were ready to try something else when these were knackered like toyo`s but they just gave ya so much confidence in em once they were hot it`d kinda be hard to change i reckon.

Your tyre opinions welcome.....By the way know eagle F1`s are good but cant get em in 215/35 x 18 which is what ive gotta have.

tried a few different types and always come back to toyo's, if your out mainly in dry weather try toyo R888's there a whole different ball game when it comes to grip

def a personal choice thing, you could get 10 answers and all ten would be different, but if you after a dry tyre as said r888 are your best bet, bit poo in the wet though

oops my bad should have said that. yeah there a semi slick, soft compund very little grooves, hence super grip in the dry, but they pay for it in the wet
