MG Midget Mk3 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Yokohama A Drive given 84% (155-70-13-T)
Driving on mostly country roads for 16000 spirited miles
Overall very pleased indeed - highly recommended

Dry
grip is very good, the car can be taken through bends with great confidence, I've never got near the limits of grip in the dry, braking is very good

Wet
grip is good but because the dry grip is so good in the wet it is noticably less so but still at a high level handling and braking are also still good

Wear
considering the amount of grip and it's a peformance tyre the wear is very good

Comfort
again very good, noise is low too

Buy again
yes certainly as a performance tyre it is very good value

theses are not bad tyres but just not suited to a small 1960/70s British sportscar like the MG Midget I have

I've had different models of Toyo tyres over many years so I know they can be very good as a make

the 350 seems to me to have a very upright sidewall which gives a harder ride in a small lightweight (very lightweight by modern standards) sportscar, I had to reduce the running tyre pressure (from the previous tyres) to prevent the ride being too hard

the handling in the dry is that they allow plenty of side movement but a bit too much too soon for my liking and take up too much of the roads when driving in a spirited manor - in the wet they're not as good as in the dry

they do have a progressive feel to them and do communicate what they're doing but their limits are far too easily reached for spirited driving of a lightweight sportscar

braking in the dry I've found to be good and progressive but I've not tried the heavy braking in the wet, I suspect they'd come good in the end but give you a worry before getting there

on another vehicle these could perhaps be more than reasonable tyres but I repeat again not on a small lightweight 1960/70s British sportscar like the MG Midget
