Do 14s just not exist then? Remember my Astra gte ran 14s. 15 was a popular upgrade 16 for the rich kids and 17 was just crazy talk

14's are rare now, even 15's can be tricky to find.

On 14's I would recommend Uniroyal rainsport 3's from Camskill

I've had the Kumho and have just acquired a pair of the Vredestein in 14 inch format.

I had all 4 khumos and found them to grip well (I ran my 518i right through the winter) and have no complaints. In the past however and on different cars I have found khumos to be great in the dry but not so good in the wet.

Personally on a 2.8 I'd be going for the Toyo's or the Vredesteins as a second choice.

Have rated every set of Toyos I've ever had and used to religiously fit Toyo Proxy's to my MK2 Golfs. A fantastic tyre in the wet or dry and reasonable life span.

I'm with Jam on the uniroyals. They are extremely good compared to the price.
