Time to replace the tyres on an XR6.
Current tyres are Monarch, super hard, last forever but have useless grip. Tread is still legal after 50k but they are scary in the wet.
What do you think of Yokohama A539's ?
Thanks for any input.
My current tyres are Pirelli P6000's - previous set were P5000's - and I've been very happy with them, especially with regard to value for money (ie. great price + great performance + reasonable life). Previously I had FM901's (not bad) and Turanza (yuck!).
Im running a set of Yokie A539's at the moment (215/60/R15), about 2 weeks old, and I've tested them in all conditions... They grip like poo to a sheet, I've gotta really give it sum guts b4 it spins the wheels in the dry OR wet (which is really surprising, my previous tires slid the ass of the car out like it was on marbles)
I highly recommend these tires, very nice with hardly any road noise, and they stick like buggery... Also, price wise they weren't too bad (I paid 125 per tyre inc GST, fitted and balanced)
