Nice looker and good grip, similar to a Yoko 008 in the dry and much better in the wet. They don't seem to have a very deep tread to start with and don't last long with 'spirited' driving but a far better driving tyre than the period Dunlop SP Sport Aquajet.

Couldn't agree more with Simon & that price is excellent.

Depends if that price is pre or post the taxman’s cut.
That’s either a really good price..... or slightly more expensive than you can get them for elsewhere.

They are £79 +VAT on their website.

Oh, if that's plus VAT, then Minispares are cheaper.

£77 + VAT

or

£92.40 inc

Just ordered four from Allopneus, France for 290 euros delivered.

Just hope it's not a mistake on their part!

I'm running these on a couple of minis at the moment . What I would say as been mentioned is the lack of tread depth when new . If you were to do a lot of drivin then I don't think for the money that you can beat the yoko A 008 ... . Ken

I agree with Mark on this one, A008 are brilliant.

The R7s looks great & handle well, but man do they wear out quickly !
