245 45 16 tyre options

Recommended Posts

The Continentials on the rear of my 9s are date marked 2017 and I am getting a humming noise which when looking at the tyres off the ground seems to point to flat spots, they are not far off the wear markers so looking at replacement options which seem limited - I see some have gone Yokohama A008P, but are there any other options/recommendation?  I have PS4s on the front but these are NLA in 245 45 16s and you don't seem to be able to get SO2's anymore??

Evening Paul!

Hope you are well  

My mate is raving about Nankang AR1s at the mo and I’ll be going for them to replace my similarly aging Toyo 888s!

Thanks Ben - all good here hope its the same with you.

Used the AR1's on track cars but not sure as an all round road tyre on the IB. however if you are coming from 888 then they are an excellent alternative - are you running these on the IB all year round?

All good thanks. 
I’ll be fitting the Nankangs to replace the 888s and running them all year round. 
I’ve realised that when I’ve had different sets of rims and tyres in the past I never swapped them over and they just got in the way!

Triple 8s are lethal in the wet. I ordered a set of 17 braids because of Michelin PS4S availability.tyre Selection in 16s is beyond the pale

they are not bad, however going up to 17 means you get access to Michelin Pilot Sport 4S 

a big step up in performance

Others have either switched to 8" as there is a biggest range of tyres, or even stretched a 225 50 over a 9" - believe Paul (Longman) did this for many years on his without issue
