Owners’ tyre tips
Bridgestone S21 £243 a pair You don’t buy tyres like this to be hard-wearing... lots of grip but really best for track days and sunny Sundays. For everyday use, the T30 Evo gets the nod at £231 a pair and should last twice as long. Dunlop Sportsmart 2 Max £229 a pair Lots of love for Dunlops out there - these are the latest sticky version but the older Qualifier II is popular too, as well as the sports-touring Roadsmart III, pricier at £234 a pair but harder wearing. Avon 3D Ultra Sport £152 Not the stickiest rubber out there but not bad either, and at that price... Get them (or the harder-wearing 3D-XM) while you can before they’re replaced with a new (and more expensive) version.
Prices are mail order. Add £6 per pair for P&P. Source SMD Tyres: 01942 604511
