They'll not be a patch on T1-Rs. TBH they are cheap budget sh!te and not really suitable for a performance car.

I have them on my Furby. At least they were only a cheap mistake Trying to wear them out as quick as possible to get rid of them

Look at Vredestein Sessanta's as a much better alternative to Toyo's. Many rate them higher than Goodyear F1's.

Always been a follower of the toyo until last year i put a set on a type ra.

Cant really fault them, they grip as good as the toyo in the dry and are resonable in the wet too, they are a harder compound than the toyo and seem to last forever though unlike the toyo !!!!!!!

I think they would make very good cheap track day tyres because they are tough and even for road use they are much better than most out there.

I can't believe people put cheap nasty tyres on cars - especially if your planning these for a Subaru

Read this
Nankang NS2 at tyre reviews - the online tyre guide

If people can't afford a decent tyre then they shouldn't be allowed on the road.

You should have spent a bit more and not gone for the Budget fits which many companies put on as usually you have an option to spend more and put something decent on
