I'm just wondering if anyone has tried these tyres?

I'm running Toyo R1R's and there rated quiet good though I have to say I'm not that impressed with them so I'm looking for something that will handle well.

Justin.

I had Re002's on the hairdresser car when I first got it, were a very good tyre for general driving duties, a quick blat on the back roads around me and the odd trackday, especially when on the tread wear indicators.

I would buy again.

Thanks guys I will have a look at the 003's and see what there like.
How would they go on a zed with a V8 in it? would they be good enough for when it's pushed pretty hard on the street? I have the Toyo R1R's on it at the moment and I guess I'm not that happy with them though they are very low in tread.

i think you're gonna love them, i chucked a set on re002s on my Sti late last year, best thing i have done, handling is fantastic, wet or dry weather.
good luck and please make sure you post your experience with the new tyres.

I was running Yokohama A050 on my R34 and these things stick! road noise was not terrible but life of tyre was not great.
probably the worst thing is the bump steer due to the stiff sidewalls .
But that's just semi slick life.

Cheers doug

Hello 44014,

I have heard they perform well but yes like the Toyo R1R's I have at the moment wear quickly. Apparently these Bridgestone RE003 are supposed to be good so I guess next week when I get them I will have an idea what there like. They are suppose to have quiet stiff side walls as well.

I run ku36's on my Z and they seems to be quite good. No bump steer issues very grippy but can't comment on life as I have only done at most 50km on them.

Hi Doug,

They look like nice tyres, are they expensive?
The Bridgestone RE003 they have buy three and get one free so got the four for $642.

I'm just hoping they will be good but they do get good reports.

Justin

no there fairly well priced on eBay.
The re003 look like they should be a very nice road Tyre. and that's a good price.

Well I have the RE003's but only got them a day before going back to work so will be 4 weeks or so before I get to try them out.
