    Best Tyres For GTD/ GTI

    Hi Guys, My GTD came with Bridgestones, which I don't rate. Poor grip & very noisy. Since my remap to 220 bhp & 500nm of torque I don't feel they are up to the job. What tyres suit a performance Golf the best? I have always rated P Zero's and told the Conti's are good. Many Thanks, Rappy:cool:

    I always find this debate on going & everyone has opinion. Still considering getting rid of my GTD for a R. The reason being I fancy a faster more powerful Golf. Ok, I could go the remap or tuning box route. But the thought of nearly zero traction in the first 3 gears has no advantages to me...
