The ps4s in eighteen wasn't available in the UK and now we see "made in USA" on them.. I suspect that means they've imported them and that the usual supply from (probably) France still isn't making them.

I was quite surprised when I searched to see that most tyre manufacturers have plants in the USA. You'd have thought they'd have made them somewhere cheaper these days.

I'd be very surprised if the GR Yaris factory tyres were from the US.

Prepare to be surprised.

I especially like that the car isn't even available there, so the tyres go from the you essay to Japan, then on to the UK. Very eco.

No idea on that one! Does look a bit odd but guess it all comes down to cost.

Just a quick question, I see the PS 4S' in 19" 88Y but should the GTI need XL rated tyres?

Just checked and yes, they are extra load tyres.

However the next question relates to the size: I have the 19" Brescia alloys and when I enter the reg. no. in various on-line tyre sites seem to think that they are 235 / 35 profile not 225 / 35's that are fitted to car. Any idea why that is?

235 would be for 8J width, but the Brescia's are 7.5J for which 225's are fine.

The Pretoria from the R and the new Mk8 19 inch wheels are 8J width.

I need some new tyres as my fronts are getting low, rear Pirellis look new.

I'm going to get the PS4s all round at some time but for now will get the PS4s on the rear and move the Pirellis to the front. I found these PS4s', wondered which type forum members went with?
