Is that round by the caravan park in Ayr by any chance? I'm guessing probably not but it looks like a good spot

10-4... What kind a rubber you runnin' on yer Altimos big buddy?

Honda dealership treating me to two new Altimos (usual story with corrosion), so i'm treating 'em to some new rubber... fresh start and all that!

FYI - the rear's are Yoko AVS dB Sports but at £175 a corner (225/40/18), I'm looking for something as grippy but not as pricey!

Was once forced into running some Kumho Ecsta Sports with cracking results, not sure whether to try them again? Swear by Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta's on the wife's car but again muchos costos!!

Don't know if to give the wallet a workout or try summat else...

Thoughts?

Ok, So Eagle F1's just about every worthy commentators top choice (certainly was in my subscription of choice - evo) but Iím trying to find a tyre that offers the same usability but without the Pirelli PZero Rosso price tag!

I heard Proxes were great grippers but lousy wear rate... I do get through some boots so I could do without even early replacement!

I'll check out mytyres and keep searching... I'll let you know how I get on. May even go Sessanta in my size (which incidentally came No. 2 in evoís list and at £90 a corner from Camskill, not bad value).

Cheers,

Sub.

p.s. love your shiny mowta btw

Hi Angie.. R you thinking of Craigie caravan park at the rear of the racecourse...?

I was trying to sus out the location by the pic but not much to go by...

But then again I think it's Culzean park south of the Electric brae...

I think Civik's from North Ayrshire area....

I was indeed, Craigie Gardens was where I thought it was.....if there was a Womble bin in shot then that would confirm
