Not strictly true - just in case reading this raises concerns that these have suddenly become non-legal so can't be used any more, even if someone has them fitted, so must be removed and changed.

The A048 doesn't meet the latest EU regs ( something that has happened with a number of tyres ). If anyone is using A048's that are from E-marked production then these are still road legal.

Sorry it wasn't too clear, I'm talking the latest new tyres and not used.

The new Toyo seems to be getting very good reviews.

No problem, I just didn't want to see someone thinking they had to stop using A048's immediately. You're absolutely right that all new production isn't E-marked now so isn't road legal.

Currently I have 888's on mine in 3G (rear) and SG (front); changed from A048 due to the latter's tendency to vibrate/unbalance.
