I'm wanting a cheap new set of tyres to put on my vts rims there 195 45 15, they will be for track.
What ones do you think are best
1) Toyo proxes t1-r at 210 a set
2) Falken ze912 at 180 a set
3) Yokohama parada at 170 a set but only do 195 50 15
4) Other if not listed

Can't comment on those tyres but keep an eye on owners forum and eBay. I picked up a set of lude wheels with 4 r888 tyres with great tread for 200! The size you're looking for is quite common as well, integra's use 195 width tyres on 15" alloys as standard!

R888's or A048's.

ive always had r888's but recently put a048's on the front of the 205 and quite like them. can't make my mind up which i prefer. probably R888's due to the cost saving

We are using BF Goodridges and they have done several track days and are still only half worn. Handle nice, very predictable, used a lot on the road as well.
Must have done 5 track days at Oulton and Anglesey, they have been on the car six years according to the receipts we got with the car.
Dont know if you can still get them.

Not used Spec 2's myself but ive heard mixed reviews. Some saying the dry grip and feed back been the best around, where as others claim they are durable but don't scrub in and create much grip. Though i can recomend Yoko C.Drive, plenty of grip in both the wet and dry but also have a high wear rate.

For value durability and dry grip you can't go wrong with a set of Proxy T1R's, Ive used T1R's numerous times and can't really fault them. R888 in medium compound seem to be a popular (track)choice if you don't intend on doing the milage. R888s prices have rocketed over the last few years though.

If you want something cheap for track use then take a look at Max Sport tarmac range, however they aren't road legal.

I use Yoko's S-Drive in the back and Falken Ziex 912 in the front on my saxo. But i think the S-drive's have better grip imho

If you want the best road legal track tyre just stick to 888's, stupidly expensive but Toyo know there the best and people pay it...
You got a cage fitted? if so just get some slicks for the track Twisted Evil
