I've had a rethink on keeping the stock tyres after driving on them in cold weather where normal "summer" tyres perform badly i.e. < 7C. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of grip the stock tyres offered to the point that I will likely keep them as the compound must be a little softer than normal for them to work so well in the cold and wet.

Shame the i8 specific compound isn't available in larger S001 sizes! I want larger tyres as a little extra rim protection from the kerbs - the grip levels are fine for a road car.
