    They're a cheapie Chinese semi slick(ish - 190 treadwear), marketed under a couple of brand names. This one being "Blacklion". I've not tried them before, but a friend has recommended them strongly to me, and at the price of NZ$159 a tyre it's not much of a gamble, given that I'm going to guess that the Dunlop Z3 I'd run otherwise would be nearer $400 a tyre.

    They won't be my normal road use tyres though, as I've picked up a set of the Evo X BBS alloys with some Michelin tyres on them. However they were bought at a distance so they're with a friend around four hours drive away at the moment. The Enkei's on the car are a bit heavier than the BBS wheels which will be on the car shortly (both factory wheels).

    I used to get these Chinese made tires on the Tealbaru and they were awesome. They were called "Warrior" and from what I was told they were made by Michelin in China. No matter who made them they were cheap as hell, like $30 a tire and they wore great and provided great performance.

    Much of the day to day tyres sold here are Chinese. This is my first try at a Chinese semi race tyre though.

    Now on the optional BBS forged alloys, on good but very old road tyres.

    Apparently these wheels are quite sought after, due to being the lighter of the two factory wheel options.

    This is straight after I dropped the car down from the jack, so that's why it is a million miles off the ground in this photo.
