I have Kumho's (original sizes which I think are still available?) Very good tyre and value, especially good in the rain or wet conditions, I find. (S1 1998)

Toyo T1Rs. A bit low on cornering grip in the dry when new, but OK once they wear down a bit. Good in the wet, and OK in winter.

No idea why I had a grumpy face last post. Never mind, I feel much better now anyways. Toyo Proxes 4 are good in wet and dry. I like them a lot but I don't know if they are available where you are.

I hated these tyres, pointlessly stiff for such a light car, not to mention twice the price. Just my opinion (apart from the pricesmile).

They were jointly developed by Lotus & Yokohama, who I guess know a bit about these things. They are by a long-shot the best 'everything' tyre for the S1 IMHO.

Indeed, but make sure the tyres are LTS spec.
