Nigel are you still happy with the PS71 tyres on your GT86? I need new tyres for the R3 fairly urgently. The PS71 are the cheapest non-ditchfinder tyres that I can find in 19 inches, at £94 a tyre. So if you're still happy with them I'll probably grab a set.

Am on my second set of PS71 tyres and can 100% recommend them to you Haydn :inlove:

The Michelin Pilot Sport 4s I have on the Tesla are fantastic on the dry and wet road, but are useless at there limit on a track :!:

When they require replacing, I intend speaking to NickD about getting a set of PS71's for the Tesla :thumleft:

Took the GT86 out today for a drive from Horsham down to Brighton, Hove, Shoreham, Lancing, Worthing and then back to Horsham, which was a total of 52miles :thumleft:

Not driven the car since 1st June so needed a long run to maintain the car :twisted:

Now only 68miles away from 143k :shock:

Wowwww :shock:

I went to Tesla Bluewater to charge the car today and they had a Ranger Guy on site who then offered to do a free inspection on the car. He checked the Tyre Pressures, Tyre Tread depth and tightened the Wheel Nuts. Also he put the Brake Pedal Alloy Pad back on for me, as it had fallen off today =D>

I know people knock Tesla, but think that's great service :thumleft:
