Tyre choice?

Post by Nick » Mon Jan 21, 2019 9:55 am

Just got some new wheels for my MR2 and am looking for tyres.

Ideally I want 225/35/17 on the back. Anyone with experience of this size? Kuhmo KU39 and Hankook K120 appear on the lists

I've got Khumo's on our 7" wolfs as there is nothing much else out there available - never had any problems with them - on the second set now - not your size of course

Of those two I would pick the Hankook ones.

A rated wet grip and seem to have the better reviews.

...and for the rear of an MR2 I think you want the best grip you can get!

(MR2s are great cars,had several in the past.)

Thanks. I am minded to go with the Hankook which have decent reviews and a good wet rating, not too pricy and the size I want.
