    225 or 235 profile on an 18 inch x 7.5 rim.

    try shopping round locally for tyres as you may get a good deal as you are buying 4 or try Black circles

    Ouch!!! a full set of 19" tyres and a wheel refurb??? your wallets going to feel a little lighter after all that, but my only suggestion is to try a company called "bush tyres" not sure if they have a branch in scotland though. But good luck matey!

    You might find it is cheaper to buy a new set of alloys and tyres as a package than tyres and a refurb ??

    Had a look at this, i can get 4 x 19' Tyres for £320 and the refurb is £160 with them getting painted in any colour i want.

    So £480 aint too bad................but bad enough I suppose.
