    I find my Hankook RS-3 tyres too sticky for the road, they pick up every stone and flick it at my arches. I always worry about paint chips. Also they like high PSI or else they only wear on the edges.

      I'm tempted to go these as I need some new boots for the Golf soon and the 4 for 3 deal is back on again.

      My main concern is wear and noise as it'll be for my daily and I do rack up the kms going to work. Don't do track days but a steady drive on a quiet country road now and then.

      Anyone got any experience with the RE003?
      Sutherland Shires #1 Escort? is that like being the 4th best prostitute in Kazahkstan?

        Going by RE002 road noise as a daily, it's no noisier than any regular Turanza ER33 I had originally. My brother's car with RE003 feels a bit quieter comparatively on the same car.

        Plus BS have been running 4 for price of 3 almost religiously annually but twice in 4 mth.

          I have Conti SportContact 2 that came with the car when I brought it and they've been good with a bit of road noise but they don't wear that well either. Was looking at Michelin Sport 4 and Goodyear Assymetrical 2 but concerned about wear.

            Just looked up the RE003 price in a size that'd suit my Megane (235/40R18 or 225/40R18 the latter is OEM wagon size the former is OEM Coupe size) - Jax will chuck a set of 4 on for $597!

            I believe the answer is "shut up and take my money"....

              Geez that's a good price, where'd you find that? I'm looking at 225/40R18 all round and I got quoted 780 including alignment

                Jax on their website for 235/40R18 (my speedo reads low on the stock 225/40R18 so going up a few mm won't make a difference.

                  I'd imagine you're already on top of it. But if your speedo is already reading low on the stock tyre size (almost all OEM spec does), moving to the wider 235 width tyre, whilst maintaining the same 40 profile will result in a larger overall rolling diameter, and lower reading again speedo. Will help against speeding fines though I guess.

                  P.S. Good buying at under $600 for a set of RE003's fitted!

                    Checked the website and it's just the 235 at that price with the 225 being $245 each. I'm happy with the 225s so I'll stick with them

                      Yeah I meant read "high" so yes all good on my speedo stakes just having a bad logic thinking morning.

                        I have RE003s on my car and found them to be excellent in both wet and dry conditions.

                            I was running RS3 for the last 3 months in my daily track Civic and the side walls are too stiff, pot holes were unbearable, change back to some AD08Rs for comfort.

                              I've seen someone complain of the opposite but I'm sure they must have been running low psi.

                              I put coilovers in at the same time and run at 42 psi all round, it's pretty harsh too because the roads here are shit.

                              What size tyres have you got and how much did you pay per tyre for the AD08Rs?

                              I paid $280 fitted per 245/40/17, I found out later I could have got them $100 cheaper per tyre in a 235 ($180 ea).

                                The reason the 235/40x18 is cheaper than the 225/40x18 is that half the
                                commodores in the mid 00s used that size. Same with the 235/45x17 vs 225/45x17,
                                Commodores used the 235 and Euros like my Benz use the 225. Guess which I
                                now have on the Benz.
