    Hi all.

    I'm trying to rectify a very poor choice in front tyre size. About 6 months ago i i decided to try a new brand after being with toyos for about 6 years (T1S / T1R ), there was nothing wrong with the toyos just getting a little long in the tooth. After looking about and searching forums i didn't get that far , too much choice .i ending going on a friends advice, his exact workds were "F@@KING FANTASTIC". So off i went to order them only to find out they didn't have my size in stock 235/40/17 . The tyre guy reconmended 225/35/17 and said they would fit perfectly on my very lowered front end so i went with that. I only do anout 1500 miles a year so i took a lttle time to figure out these tyres absolutely S@@T. They take agos to run in and when they were they take an age to heat up. The last straw was i finally upgraded to grooved and drilled disc with PF pads , Under heavy braking on b /c roads they totally struggled for grip and chirped like crazy enough to scatter sheep at 100 paces. So after much searching and not taking cost in to account i decided on ps2/3's. I'm not going to to now change my mind but just my luck i can't find 235/40/17's anywhere even though the sizes are listed by michelin .
    Can anyone tell me if they have ever bought ps2's in 235/40/17 or should i just give up and go and buy some toy's

    Thanks

    Just ordered hankook rs2's track tyres. Should have much grip and the right size at last.
