So the R went for its inaugural MOT.
Picked up an advisory for the rear tyres degrading due to their age...The perishing has caused cracks to appear in the tread gaps..
(Goodyears). I changed the fronts last week due to a slow puncture, it may have to wait a while..Went for the uniroyal rainsport 3s.. Lets see how they are..

Btw, I put Uniroyal Rainsport on my last car, Megane CC, the grip was excellent, but they didn't last very long :eusa-think:

I had a 156 GT before the R, the conti's on the rear perished throught the sidewall lettering.. Led to a dramatic exit off a roundabout with the traction control driving. I swapped to goodyears after that..

I swapped the original Conti fronts for Hankook's, but they didn't last long either, & the grip wasn't brilliant, I've just put Michelin super Sport 4S on the front. So far, excellent grip, too soon to know about deg. :eusa-think:
