    Sound not quite right - Potenza seem more appropriate

    I just ordered a whole new set of boots for the F40 after Brands last week and have sourced them through Steve who was at the track day:

    Simply Tyres - 07737741634

    Very impressed with the price and service - especially as I was told the PZero was like gold dust to get hold of

    I would really really steer clear of the Bridgestones.

    May I recommend the TOYO T1R's, Michelin MV3A Pilot or the Pirelli PZERO

    Actually you could just spread butter around the alloys and they would grip better than the bridgestones!!!

    Had them on my MX5 sport and on my S2000 and in both cases changed the tyres after less than 2000 miles cos it was frustrating - handling totally different after. Just to give you an idea a corner with the bridgestones in the S2000 was a challenge @ 40mph. Same corner with the T1r's @ 68mph without one single step out.

    Is that just a rough guideline Simon?

    Bridgestone SO1s were fine on my 355. Easily as good as the PZeroes it had on when I bought it. Bridgestones also work fine on my Aston.

    Much will depend on how the car is set up IME. I believe the 355 setup is different depending on the tyres it has - a sticker on one of the door jambs notes what tyres they had out of the factory. As a minimum, pressures are different. Other settings may also change.

    Bridgestones wear well IME. Better than Pirellis.

    Must say fitted a set of bridgestones to my 348 and a vast improvement over the p zero,s.The tram linning on rutted roads disapared so to did the aqua planing in the wet.much more stable under heavy braking.Far better grip and at just over 500 the set not bad price

    One thing that we are not taking into consideration is the quality of the tarmac. The road surface in the UK is much more grippy than here in Malta so it would make a substantial difference.

    As already mentioned, the Bridgestones are a harder compound and therefore wear less - but here in Malta we need the softest compounds possible.
