185/50 or 195/45's are the best choices tbh.

I can confirm that there are - because those are Toyo Proxes T1-Rs in that picture :)

Yea I thought that by the tread pattern, I had them on my lupo, I thought they were cracking! Never put some real power though them on a lupo tho!

One of my favourite tyres for all round performance. Although tyres are a personal choice thing.

Same here, although i might try out the R888 for summer this year.

I run 195/45/14 rainsport 2's. Can't complain about the grip, although I swear the rainsport 1's were better.
Might give Toyos another whirl next time round. I also remember the surprisingly cheap falkens you can get being very very good for the price.

I run Falken 452's on my supra and i can still get the 450 BHP power down in the wet, provided im not in a corner then it just decides to go sideways, no matter what tyres i have on it  :D

So i reccomend the Falkens, I have never triey toyo as i always thought that for the price, you go through them rather quickly because of the softer compound.

Realy good in the dry but terrible in the wet, got them on my car at the moment, althought a 185 50 r14 only realy gives a choice of yoko or conti sport contacts (I will be trying the continentals next winter )

I hated the ZE512s when I had them, very prone to slipping about in the wet. Moreso than the Toyos.
