Tyres a problem

Hi, all had my new Type R a few days with rage 19" alloy's on took for a spin in wet for first time today, wheels spinning everywhere after not much acceleration Yokohamas on back and radial tyres (cheap obviously on front) thats what i bought with but good deal and will replace all, what do most of you guys have or use with theses wheels to cope with the front wheel drive,i am a mechanic myself but dont know and never dealt much with Hondas ,oil changes i would suspect every 6K?

Im currently running Falken FK452's and they have really good grip in the wet.

Im planning on ordering some syron race ones when my falkens are done.
They seem to be getting good reviews at the moment.

No point in putting cheapy tyres on the front pal, I'm running potenzas all round and have immense grip and confidence in both wet and dry. It's also worth looking into getting your geometry done if your sliding around the place.

I do mine every year which is around 8-10K
Cars on 44K at the moment and will get done soon.
Also going to change my gearbox oil for good measure.

I'm running Eagle F1 A2's. Best tyres I've ever had, especially for wet grip.

You think you have traction issues....try a diesel
conti sp3 - excellent grip snow/ice/wet/dry 12 months life noisy.
eagle f1 as2 - excellent grip wet/dry (crap on ice snow) 12-18 months life maybe quiet

Couldn't agree more - on my 1.8, I previously had Conti SC3s (17"), and I thought they were excellent - now running the Goodyear Eagle F1 A2s (18"), and they are just superb

Of course, being in Norway, I have a full set of Winter shoes as well, so I'll never know how the Goodyears perform on snow / ice - but, wet or dry, they just grip - and they are quiet

Oil-wise, any good fully synthetic reputable make - from 0w to 40, or anything in between - oil filter from Tegiwa (Hamp) and their magnetic sump plug
