Yokohama S Drive OR Michelin Pilot Super Sports??

Guys...


Need some advice here.


Within the next couple of days I want to order up some tyres to go on my Speedline Marmora's that I have waiting to go onto my F56 Cooper S.


The wheels are 18x8 - ET45 which will sit them pretty close (actually very close) to the inner suspension strut.


The OEM tyre size for my stock 18's is 205/40/18 - and this is the size I want to put on my Speedlines. I believe that 8j is the maximum width recommended for this tyre size by the manufacturers - so my hope is that the tyre stretch will not be a problem.


Anyway - I have narrowed it down to two options, based on the great reviews these tyres get.


I'd prefer a tyre that doesn't run "narrow" (like Falkens have a reputation for!!)


I can get the Yokohama's for £496 delivered and the Michelins for £548.


Does anyone have any recommendations?
