Thanks  :thumb:

I used to love the celica too, back when the WRC was a bit more interesting.

Russ - I know they're not the cheapest of tyres but even if it takes a bit longer you've gotta try a set of the potenzas on your comps you wont be disappointed. After fitting the coilovers I wasn't expecting any real difference but the handling has completely changed again.

Ben

I've always found my car to be not actually that good at handling even though it's lowered. I changed the suspension last year with new dampers and springs all round. It does seem to have a lot of under steer but that could be the rubbish tyres. I had potenza's on the type R but didn't rate them much. The best tyre I've had as the yoko a539R on my 106 rallye which was purely track prepared, it wouldn't come unstuck going round Caldwell.

£273 delivered for 4 is the best price I've found on the net from Tyretraders.com

£306 delivered from my tyres.co.uk

Will ring the tyre supplier we use for work bit there normally useless  :blink:

Is yours FWD?

I was just thinking out of the 3 options you found, i would be going for the bridgestones.

I got my ones from tyretraders and received great service, they arrived next day after ordering. None of my local fitters could even buy them in at trade for that price  :P

Yes mate it's just FWD which is a shame because I would love a 4WD one. Let me know if you ever sell yours  ;)

Great to hear! Yeah, I love driving mine on the motorway. The looks people give you when you pass them in the fast lane is quite hilarious :)
