Interesting. I'll keep an eye on those. It's not everyday that we get a new tire in 245/45 R16!

Oooops! I just checked and they don't make it in 225/50 R16 so no luck for my 951 :(

I was just about to pull the trigger on a set of Yokohamas. then the missus said, "what happen next time and the time after if there is such little choice now"  knew there was a reason I kept her around....lol!

So think I'll get a set of 8" and sell the 9" - I have 3 x 9" if anyone is interested

Toyo still do that size.  Just had a pair fitted for £115 each.

 

Non repairable puncture today on a less than 4 week old tyre means I'm using up 245x45x16 supply faster then expected :(

My indie said they had driven a 930 with the Yokohama’s on, felt very sure footed, good grip, etc so maybe worth a punt if you are looking for a 245/45 16

I couldn't find a set anywhere last week - ended up with AD08s instead.

There were at least 4 outfits selling them earlier in the year! - I think they may have become the go to tyre and supply run out!

Found them here but prices seem to have doubled!
