I've been happy with the few sets I've had (I've had Goodyear Eagle F1s before, and some Bridgestones).

I also know of a Caprice pulling 11's on 265 wide Nankang NS2s.

thats a great time the capreice is getting on is street nankang tyres...

Rear wheels yes front wheels NO! Had a couple of scary understeering/aquaplaning experiences whilst not even pushing hard. My car has a fair decent suspension set up too.

NS2's you either love em or hate em. Value for money, I dont think they can be beaten. They are awesome on grip until about the 50% mark after that throw em and get another set. I used to do a fair bit of mountain pass driving and I didnt find anything better

Will be looking at the NS2s when it comes time to replace my Sava Intensa tyres.

Hoping the NS2s wear well though ... seeing as my current Savas ahve been decent tyres for grip ... and heavy load driving.

So far I have managed nearly 70,000km out of my 235/45R17 Savas doing courier work around Sydney in the last 12 months.

I just hope the NS2s are as good or better ... was quoted $149 for the Nankangs in 17" size .... so will be going for those when the time comes

Is that the new building on the Northern Road there ... or was that the new Matthews Tyre Service place I was thinking of????

It's worth driving there from Kurrajong for that price :D
