Any big brand name will do for me. It comes down to what the tyre claims to do. eg. handling in wet, grip and so on. Plus the price of the tyre.

another nankang user here.. in 245/35/19 size tyres... i do have a fair bit of under steer...but may be a prob due o a fair bit of camber on the front tyre's..

ps... "linglongs".. sounds classy!... BWHAHAHAHA.. :lol:
