    Default tyre sizes

    hi guys ,
    wonder if you can help me ,looking for tyres for my vectra ,although i would like some better alloys i cant afford them at the moment .so having to replace my tyres for now.got 215/55/16 tyres on my on my design 1.9 150bhp .but to get the dunlop or vredestein in the same size would cost me near on £98 but if i got the 205/55/16 in these tyres they will only cost me £60 which for 2 tyres is a big saving .been on the tyre size chart and it says a 1.5 % decrease in speed which means when i am doin 62 on my speedo it says i will only be doin 61 ,can any one tell me what probs if any,thanks and also thanks for the people who told me about the auto lock after 10 mph it is so cool

    Is the 205 or 215 not the actual width of the tyre? ie the bit that is actually in contact with the road ??

    With that being the case the difference is so minimal.

    My car has 205/55/16.
    My sister's Veccie has 215/55/16
    Her husband's Veccie has 215/55/16

    I ordered Hankook K415's 205/55/16 from Camskill at £52 per tyre.

    all i know is that there is a big difference in price for the sake of 215 to 205 and the dunlop on testing give a superb rating on noise testing and handling and the vredestein are given a good rating aswell on mytyres.com and for £60 for dunlops it is not worth debating.i can get some nearly just has good but there is only £ 8 between them.

    Check out the rating of the Hankooks K415's on Mytyres. You'll be surprised at the rating !!!
