I don't think you can use slicks for a lot of track days .

Should be around £160 incl VAT.
Delivery is something like £15 but is a single charge, irrespective of how many tyres as you buy. If you are near Birmingham, they are happy for you to collect.

I'm glad they're still around that price - that means they haven't really changed in price in at least the last 3 years.

As pointed Avon's are an amazing performance tyre, they really last,
one bonus over Slicks is that they don't harden after a couple of years.

I've used +10 years old Avon's and they were still soft and had plenty of grip.

Cheers

And grip levels are as good as the Yokohama A032R?

Twice the grip of A0032 and ten times the steering feedback

I can't for the life of me understand why people think A0032 are so good. Went to a rally where they have to be used as the control tyre, 2 fronts lasting 20 miles.

In my (fairly limited) experience, 032's are a very average tyre to say the elast. OK, they look the part, but that's about it. & OH DO THEY WEAR!
