See you've got 255 35 18 instead of 40, and 225 40 18 instead of 45

How does that affect things?

These were reviewed in Evo last month. They got some good feedback. I used to love Sportrac 3 tyres back in the day

Well I came from runflats so as far as wide quality it feels amazing but I'd be a bad review for the smaller tyre profile compared to other people. On rough roads you do feel it still a lot better than the flats though.

Is there anything specific you'd like to know?

Not really, think I might stick to the standard sizes and pay a little extra. Would be interested to know how they compare to Michelin PS4/PS5.

I thought they was the standard size for my tyre, they was what was on previously and what is stated in the tyres and wheel thread here:

I've gone from 225/45/18 F and 255/35/18 R to 225/40/18 F and 255/40/18 R on Style 224s and would struggle to tell the difference.

OK, was just wondering if there was any difference in ride quality/comfort or height but suppose it's a tiny difference isn't it

It's mad, in those sizes the Michelin PS5 is cheaper than Vredestein in the standard size :o
