Wtf can you even buy nowadays

1. Budgets
2. Pirelli for 1000000 a corner
3. Toyo Semi Slicks

Do you guys know anywhere I can get decent road tyres? T1R or similar?

Its 225/50/R15 for the rear, 195/55/R15 for fronts btw.

T1R's are still available, they are just relatively low production runs now so they are often out of stock.

Not an amazing tyre, but alright for the money.

It's your best bet for a road car that gets used all year round without spending 200+ each for the Pirelli's.

The R888R is an excellent track / dry summer weather only tyre. It's hopeless in the wet or when it's cold.

The only other option is a Nankang. Never rated them, and the only one available is not even their 'performance' tyre.

1991 Toyota MR2 Mk2 Turbo Rev1

IMO I'd go for a better quality tyre than the correct size.

Can you get Bridgestone RE003s in the UK?

I have them on my Toyota Blade Master G and they are phenomenal.

They are available here in a 195/55R15 and 205/55R15 (this different rear size is only a 0.08% difference in diameter compared to the stock rear size)

Keeps a stagger but you have a much higher quality tyre.
