Sorry had posted the usual TOYO T1-R's advice then read your post properly :oops:

I fitted all season Nokian eNtyres to my Yeti and they have been excellent. They get great reviews but not sure if they do the correct tyre size for the mx5.

TR1's are not all season tyres. They are summer tyres

rainsport 3 are getting good reviews for the mx5, I've not used them myself but many folk on mx5nutz are singing their praises

GM and Sprocket

Can you both go to SpecSavers and get an eye test.

The poster has asked for an all season tyre you have both recommended a summer tyre!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yup, hands up got it wrong Eddie. In my haste to try and offer some actual advice to a new user I mis-read the post. In my defense I did edit my post about 15 mins later when I realised my reply wasn't at all helpful. My edited post addressed this by recommending an all season tyre that I use on my everyday car.

So two of us don't bother to read the post properly and the other one helpfully suggests Google. Doesn't exactly cast any of us in a good light. Sorry Derek we'll try to do better next time! :roll:
