Hi,

Any more road reports?


I’m really pleased with them
Drove to Blyton and back (220 mile round trip) and for me
they were a definite improvement over previous Aquajets.

Cheers

Nick :)

Did that include any rain out of interest? Their wet performance seems to be the unreported part of the jigsaw so far...

Anyone put them on a set of Dunlop D1's yet? I don't know whether to get 145's or wait for 165/70's..

I can`t bring myself to buy a set due to the huge BLOCKLEY on the sidewall making it not exactly a period looking tyre in my eyes, the tread looks great though so I may come around eventually.
My Dunlops are getting near to the wear limit which is a shame as they are really grippy when part worn and great in the wet but I got them at a very good price at the time.

I too had the exact same thoughts when I originally saw the tyre sidewall. It's a shame it couldn't be a little less in your face BUT with the nice tread pattern and, so far, good reports, I think it the are likely to be adorning my Minis in the future.

It depends if you drive or show your car. Personally I would prefer modern tyres on a car used on the road. A wet weather review is needed. 145 v 165 is an interesting comment. I look forward to future comments.

I wouldn’t. I’ve have 145/70 12’s in the past and they look under hatted.

The 145/10s are marked up for a 4 inch rim. 3.5 in rim undersize for it 4.5 slightly oversize 5 probably not greatly over stretched.
