too many things come into play when deciding whats best tyre choice etc.....so bloody stupid question Mr Cross!...Ha ha....seriously tho', obviously for tyre life you gotta buy a treadwear number above 320...(wonder how many people know bout that one lol)....higher the number the longer they last!...soft tyres will have low number and wear out quicker BUT grip like a good un when u prob need it the most!....my Fav is the Yoko....good track day tyre...looks **** hot tread pattern on a fast car too!...and if ya drive hard on the street i reckon you cant beat Toyo Proxy's....directional tread pattern with very good grip in wet AND dry....in my early days of capris i loved the "General" tyres...they had such hard compound (high treadwear number) but the buggers gripped well too for a hard tyre....nowadays as a good capri tyre the Falkens take a lot of beating...ZE 512 pattern if i recall....horses for courses i suppose at end of day...but talking fast track day tyres only Yokos or prob Toyos worth talking bout.
