Hi Mark - Big Simp was having to change to a new set of SO3s and had a pair of rear SO2s (245/45ZR16s)with plenty of tread he may sell reasonably.
If it must be new SO2s get your local tyre depot to try Bridgestone but say they are for a Porsche not TVR. I was also told that SO2s could be sourced easily in the South - try a Dublin tyre depot.

That's Jim Morrow's but as far as I know they're all gone - maybe John could ask nicely.

Charles Hurst have got me Bridgestones in the past.

I am now using Michelin Pilot Sports I bought from
www.mytyres.net/first.html


The Michelins are much better IMO than the SO3's I used previously

I bought from England, as last time I tried to get a performance tyre in my sizes 225/45x16 and 245/45x16, nobody I phoned in NI was of any help at all.
They all offered me crap.
