Right... Well I tend to champion the "cheap tyre" alternatives for the evo...
So after running nexen n3000s (never again just for lack of grip) and subsequently the N1000s (excellent tyre for the price)
I've decided to give the Saliun Atrezzo zsr tyres a try. Upgraded to 18's so running 255 35 series. As far as specs concerned, it's in between the prior nexens in treadwear (320tw vs 340tw in N3000 and 280tw in N1000) so I don't expect it to be as excellent a performer as that n1000 I had previously, but still should be good.
Will report as they are on the car and how it feels.
