Speedy, they aren't really the best of tyres. I believe they come as OE ona civic and they weren't that great in terms of performance, tyre noise.

They are ranked the lowest in it's category. And on a RR I would have expected the best.

vid6639 maybe there is a tieup with the company. maybe the compounds have been changed for the rolls royce. i have driven in a couple of them and never payed attention to the tyres though. there was no noice that comes into the cabin.
