Has anyone tried these on a clubby? 205x50x15 are $240 fitted from mag and turbo. Looking for some good hillclimb and sprint tyres..

Do it. As sticky as R888R's and they grip up much quicker (ie specifically better for hillclimbs and sprints where you can't properly warm tyres)

I've only got them on the rear at the moment but when my 888s wear out I'll definitely put them all round.

Thanks Neil.... is $240 about right, or do you know of a better price somewhere?
Cheers.

I paid a _lot_ less than that but I think that was an introductory price... Admittedly mine were 13's.

I'd check with Goodyear AutoCare Timaru to see what they could do... They were very accommodating with me and even found a place in Chch to deliver them to and fit them for me.

Mag and turbo, $240 fitted and balanced. Hopefully get to try them out at the track next week.

Should have bought them before the Hawkswood sprint.....
