Not tried yokos, but are a soft tyre so should have plenty of grip just may not last too long....... But then I have Toyos and they don't last long ever

I have Yoko's on mine. They were all new on the car 12 months ago. The front are stll legal (just) but I have to change the rears for the MOT in a couple of weeks. Thats about 15K miles which I think is pretty good, considering.
Grip is absolutely fantastic in the dry, but personally, I find them a bit twitchy in the wet. Not enough to stop me buying another set!!!

Think I saw them for about 70 on the net somewhere (205 x 40, 17").

15K miles, (read it again mate :wink: )

As for driving............do you know anyone who doesn't drive a scooby like its meant to be driven!!!!

I was very impressed how well they wore considering what I'd heard and was told about Yoko's before I'd actually got some. I was only expecting about 6 months use.

Cheers,

Mickey.

What's wrong with Nokian Hakkapeliitta 4 ?? Mine runs perfect on them and they don't wear out very quickly.

Anybody tried them ?
