Tyres/Tires

Hi All, some time since I have looked in on the forum and have forgotten how to use it. Looked at the tyres on the car and they were manufactured in 1989!
So, despite having some tread left they will need to go. The problem is finding suitable replacements for the rear which, currently, are BF Goodrich P265x50xVR15. A trawl through the net has found nothing so can someone from the forum point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Re: Tyres/Tires

Avon cr6zz 275/55R15 Good tyres and way way better than the BFGs. Been using them on my GTD for 10 years. Not cheap but it's the only bit that connects you to the road.

Thats where I get my Avons.
They even bring them to Belgium ( Spa Francorchamps ) for me to collect and bring them home to Holland. Great service and great customer support.

Re: Tyres/Tires

When I purchased my car it had BF Goodrich tires on them. When I switched to the Avons it was a world of difference. Much better grip.
