    Default New tyres on 348 spider

    I currently have Pirelli PZero direzionale 225/40 ZR 18 in the front and asimmetrico's 265/40 ZR 18 in the rear. It is time to replace them for new shoes.
    I would be interested to hear your experiences with other brands like Bridgestone, Michelin, Dunlop, Yokohama and what have you more..
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    People may frown on them but for me the best tyres I tried on a 348 (and I had tried most brands) were Toyo Proxes. Great grip in all weathers.

    I run toyo Proxes (T1R's) too.
    I think they're great tyres.

    The toyos certainly worked well on the hillclimbs. Especially in the wet.

    I can't find them in my size on the Toyo website.

    What about the Goodyear Eagle Asymmetric? The test look good.

    You need another 355 and /or 348 with 355 wheel person to advise what tyres they have as my car is sold so I don't know the exact alternative rear spec for 18 in - sorry - I'd guess its 265/35

    Thats because the link you are looking at is the American site. You need Toyo UK
