Re: What are the best tyres for GT-P

The beast is almost due for new tyres at 61,000km.
The first set were SP9000s (surprise,surprise) and they lasted about 30,000km. As these were on the car for the FPV day I am quite happy with their longevity.
I replaced them with another set of SP9000s and have had a really good run with them. They have, I would estimate, about 5000 km left before I should replace them.
I priced another set os SP9000s @ $488 ea. fitted.
Has anyone tried different tyres on their FPV and if so are they a better choice.
Bloody cheap for the 9000s. At that price I'd be sticking with them, although I have heard some really good reports about Hancooks & Khumos and was going to investigate when I need my next set as they are about half price. I know that Redhawk has been looking into this issue.
