Buying tyres from online marketplaces

Recommended Posts

I’ve seen an advert online for Yoko AD08Rs, claims to be brand new with stickers and manufacturer dates of 2018.

 

Any risk of fake tyres out there, or any other notable risks?

 

Price is £250 per pair of 245/40r18s collected so not unbelievably cheap but good value nonetheless.

 

Any opinions?

I've bought tyres from various online sites over the years and never had a problem.

It's always a good idea though when buying anything online to make sure it's a trusted site that you either know or has good reviews.

If you are proposing to spend £250.00 on a pair of tyres, might be a plan to get the correct size: ;)

Rolling radius to be correct for 18s has to be a 45 profile? I think?

Funnily enough those tyres would be going into the 8.5J Rays you sold me - planning to put these on the front and replace the rears with matching tyres. I’ve chosen a 40 profile for added rigidity. 

 

After much deliberation I’m going to give a square set up a try on the track. Both Dan and Martin have given some great advice and Dan’s going to be disappointed with my decision but his input has inspired me to invest into getting the geometry properly done somewhere specialist in combination with ARBs, coilovers and camber arms to dial out any snap oversteer. 

 

I did consider running 255/35s square but understand these are max on 8.5Js as opposed to ideal, and with a NA DE with no head work the extra rubber probably doesn’t justify the weight.
