Newbie - 3rd Type R - Dublin, Ireland

Hey everyone,

Just bought my 2008 Milano Red Civic Type R GT on Saturday, loving it so far. Previously had a Honda Integra DC5 and before that a Civic Type R EK9.

I've a few plans for the new car, first thing will be some new tires though!



Seems like a good forum, I used to be the Irish Rep over on EK9.org and organised some great events throughout the few years there. Looking forward to chatting to everyone!

Cheers,
Ben

If your after tyres, get Yokohama AD08's. Stoney runs then and there absolutely fantastico!!!

Pricey tho...

On a budget I'd recommend Avon ZZ3's, really good for around 100 (19") so cheaper again for your 18's

I was thinking about sticking with the Bridgestone Potenza's but I will definitely be looking around!

Yeah I've always liked them myself, I've also been advised to consider the Uniroyal Rainsport 2.
