These tyres will transform the handling of your car, and we guarantee that if they are not the best tyres you have driven on we will give a refund. Drive normally / scrub them in, as any tyre should be, for about 30 miles and use them for 1,000 miles or so and if they are not the best tyres you have driven on we will refund!

If you align the yellow painted on dot on the sidewall in the vicinty of the valve stem, that is the optimum fitment position for balancing.
