I used to have some on the green 420. They were good when very new but after a while, they became really rubbish. The only time I've ever spun a car is with those on the back.

The Kumho Ecsta KU31s on the red 420 at the moment are miles better than the NSIIs despite costing similar money.

Obviously we all have our own preferences regarding tyres but to put a budget tyre on a modern performance hatch when the owner can clearly afford to spend money on big brakes and BBS wheels is crazy.

This is not a dig at the owner btw, just my opinion :)
