Try these guys

http://www.mrtyremotorsport.co.uk/dunlop-dz03g.asp

I used to get my X22s from there.

Or try Dave@ears as he could probably price match or even beat:

We run with 265s on 9.5" rims, but front and rear arches are extended. And, of course it depends on the wheel offset - on my car the wheels are +15 offset (ie they stick out even more).

245s on 9" rims should be OK, although 255s might be a better match (or run 245s on an 8.5" rim). If you went for 245s, would that be with a 40% or 35% aspect ratio? Is your issue the space available between coilover and inside of wheel arch or the overall diameter of wheel and tyre? Feel free to PM me

watcha brad, on a 9inch rim i would run either 245/40 or 255/35

I actually run 235/40 on my 9inch wheels but thats because 888's come up wide ( the 235 come up at 244mm )

Were using a different route - 240 640 -18 fronts, 270 650 - 18 rears.... Just happen to come in lots of compounds, slick and wet, and just happen to be lots out there if you look.

Being the current control tyre for Carrera cup and also ginetta challenge. Our first set to test on which are not that bad were £40.00 for 4. (We do have other tyres lol, but these will do for the moment.)

You will find the Supercup tyres very hard for a one lap flyer but they are cheap, FYI this years cup tyres are even harder in compound, we have been testing in the run up to Brands this weekend and they last for ever

Thx Robin,

Yes they are cheap - awesomely so, but we need something to keep the car aff the ground at the mo, and I think something hard at the moment will give us a base mark to go from for initial set up.

Should add we do have some more tyres that are very very soft....

Btw, don't suppose you have a linky for info on the various compounds, as getting info on these is sketchy to say the least.
