Think its Uniroyal. Had some (Rallye's??) on a Rover years ago, very noisy
on the twisty bits. Nothing like the things fitted on my POS coupe though,
dunno what they are made from but they grip rather less well than slippery
things covered in oil on wet ice - on anything other than bone-dry surfaces
I can spin the front tyres in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Squeal? even when taking a
90 degree junction from dead stop. Just hoping that I have the Ur-q back
before the real bad weather arrives...
