just bought some Pirelli P6000 tyres. Anyone had any experience with them?

I put a set of these on my t16s they grip very well in a straight line in the wet, but I am not impressed by the stiffness of the side wall. All mine are knackered now in about 20k miles. I will be replacing them with some Avon Zv1's.

Not Powergy, just P6000 195/60/VR15.

I had exactly the same experience as Keith. Sidewall flex was a nightmare and I was glad to wear them our in a wheel-spinning frenzy with Simon aboard.

I'm running a set at the moment and am very pleased with them. Good grip in both wet and dry, and quite a quiet tyre compared with ones I've had previously. I'm only running a normally aspirated 900 though, so I guess I'm not putting as much power through them, or arriving at corners quite as fast as some of the high-speed boys....
