    Trim : Elegance/Elite

    Engine : 2.0DTi

    Mileage : 73350

    In a recent survey in EVO magazine these tyres came out top In 9 of the 13 catergories and won overall best tyre
    what they were compared against included
    bridgestone potenza 5001
    dunlop sport maxx
    goodyear eagle f1
    michelin pilot sport 2
    pirelli p zero ki
    kumho ecsta spt31
    toyo proxos t1
    hankook ventus si evo
    the test wwas based on 235/35/19 tyre size and each tyre was fitted to the same car in turn
    So yer there good tyres all you need is deep pockets because these are not cheap
    Driving vauxhall,s for 30 + years
    and still loving it

    What size, speed, and load rating?

    These are usually runflat, as specified by the SSR, so your car will need tyre pressure indicators
    Equally, they will be a harder ride than standard tyres

    Some people like them, others can't stand them
    My previous Mondeo had them (standard version) and they lasted about 30% less than Michelin Pilot HX

    I can highly recommend Uniroyal Rainsport2's. As can other Vec-C members.

    Continental are about as good a tyre as money can buy, the experience I have is of Conti-sport 2 and 3 on my Saab, hey were a great tyre but lasted half as long and cost twice as much as the Neuton NT5000 I moved to on the same car and found the same grip levels.

    if they are on offer at a fantastic price go for them but there are many as good options at far less cost IMHO
