Fill your boots mate! :lol:

Also the Eagle F1 comes in the Directional 5 (cheap) and Asymmetric 3 (not cheap!), the directionals are the ones Ken is talking about. I still rate the RE003s, shame Hyper don't do Bridgestone! I really can't fault them.



Ahhh ok, can't remember which one I looked up.

Yeah I would love a set of RE003s! My old Legacy had S001s which I also found pretty good.

Yeah, beating the same drum I know, but yet to find their limits and would put them on my daily as well but they don't go that small, haha.

A friend has the same spec Outback with Bridgestone Turanzas on it and is really happy with them.

I've got RE003 on the MR2. Took it to Manfield and didn't manage to get them to squeal. Noob first track day but did 4x20min sessions but I still have 6mm on the front and 5mm on the rear and using it as a daily for the last 6 months. Tyres went on the car November 2016.

I couldn't quite stretch my wallet to get some F1s or RE003s so I ended up getting some Hankook Kinergy GTs (H436). I've had a great run with Hankook in the past, so fingers crossed. I got them for just under $150 each fitted at my work which was great!

Let us know how they go! My mate tried to sell me Hankooks but we found very little in the way of reviews for them.

Will do!

I've had 2 sets of Dynapro All Terrains, my mum has some new Kinergy ecos and my wife has a pair of K415 Optimo, and so far have proved to be pretty good range of tyres. Not top of the range but great for the price.

Looking forward to the GTs, so far they feel pretty good and aren't too noisy.
