    What about the Yokohama Advan V105
    http://www.yokohama.com.au/Tyres/ADVAN-Sport-V105.aspx
    They get decent reviews. Not an R-spec like the AD08R.
    If you dig a hole and it is in the wrong place, digging it deeper isn't going to help.

    Police warn that blow-up dolls are not recognised floatation devices.

    AD08R are not r specs. Tyres considered to be r spec have a tread wear rating below 100. Eg. 80. AD08R have a twr of around 180 I believe.

    I find it so difficult to fathom why so many people dont understand the difference between R spec and road tyres.
    I know the lebbo tyre companys push it wrong but on here I think people should know better.
    I told them I once raced cars (total lie ) pissed them right off I will think of something bigger.

I am really only interested in dry grip while having the tyres as quiet as possible, longevity and wet weather performance don't matter for how I use the car. So it does seem that the Michelins are still the better choice for me.
    PS3 seem better than Re003 to me unless you prefer a slighty stiffer sidewall

    Manufacturers putting r everywhere in the name of the tyre doesn't help either. AD08R, rsr-r, rs3 etc.
