235/40/18 and 245/40/18 (rear)
Bought these tyres 5yrs ago (due for renewal now though) after coming from using the Kuhmo ecta sport and falken FK451's.
They were the only brand avialable at the time. So i trusted them after seeing so much of the company sponsoring cars at drifting events.
The MA35 is a summer tyre which i was a little unsure about as i use the car all year round as a weekend blaster and it lives outside. During the warm months the tyre is planted offering plenty of grip, predictable, comfort- hard to tell on coilovers, road noise no more than previous brands mentioned. It's a loud car any way. During colder months i think it can become a hard tyre so needs a bit of heat in it to help it work...
In the wet they do fine aswell plenty of grooves to expel water. Until obviously getting down to the wear markers where im at now on the rear. They easliy spin up in 3rd when rolling and planting it reaching full boost. The roads do get greasy so no tyre will grip. Also operating temps will have an effect. Combination of everthing once worn makes them pretty useless, but when dry again still really good and grippy.
Note: The tyres are 5 yrs old the fronts have cracks on the outer tread pattern- rubbers going off. The rears are fine no cracks but are worn out, maybe they get to temp quicker and don't dry out?
I would buy again depending on price (Â£470 for four last time). Currently looking at cost of these, kuhmos and falkens again to do all four.
Used the Kuhmos on the Nurburgring a few years ago and once the pressures were adjusted t oallow for expansion it was a great tyre with plenty of grip-which makes me want to go back to that brand on past harsh use on track.
Car is @420bhp rwd only, no traction control or fancy stuff. Just raw driving.
