Hey guys was looking for some opinion if any1 tried some of the bellow tyres, because i use the car daily i have atm the R1R and i m happy but they stopped importing them in Greece. Dont wanna go on a semi slick tyre, i dont use it on track but i do care a lot on gripping the tyre on dry enviroment because when i am cruising i love pushing it a little bit from stop position or cornering it. 1 friend has an EG with b16 N/A and he is using the Yoko Bluearth ES 32 and he is telling me unbelievalbe stuff about it this new tyre , very well gripping all around all day without heating and he is launch controlling all the time his car for 3 years and still he is very fond of the grip.
i was searching all around and i m try to see any opinions about these
Yokohama bluearth ES32 - even my friend tried them but i got some more Hp than him
Yokohama Fleva V701 - as i saw they use the same compound as bluearth but there is an extra layer of gripping 5 instead of 4 of bluearth
Bridgestone turanza T005- 5 layers of gripping

i have sticked to those tyres as i run 195 55 15, the 55 is making the choises limited
i m happy to hear any thoughts

I have the Fleva tyres on my Fit in 195/55/R15 size. Very good grip in dry and wet. Few of my friends are trying them because they heard my opinion, plus they don't break the bank like the Neova. It was just over €80 per tyre for me.

what motor you run mate ? yeah its a cheap tyre as all of the ones that i mentioned . and they get heated fast enough for cruising and in daily , they are better as i guess than to install a track tyre , i was just wondering with a B18c motor and 4.9 final drive if they will behave good , but i guess they heating range will apply better and they will grip better

My Fit is only a 1.5 VTEC. Just shy over 100BHP. I have 205/50/R15 Nankang NS-2R for my B16 Civic. Will see how those hold up.

I can't say for certain. You'll have to try them yourself. I haven't encountered a situation where my tyres slipped under braking or cornering. All I can tell you is my opinion on them.
