    Question New Tyre Choice, Low Road Noise?

    I have seen quite a few threads on tyres but thought would post the question.

    I am looking to change my current tyres (think they're made by nagasaki, might as well be ) I want very low road noise but nothing to expensive nor too cheap.

    Tyre size is 205/50 R17 (think it's 205, might be 215)

    Was looking at Continental Contact Sports but what do guys think?

    Am rather clueless about tyre choice as with my previous car, I wasn't too bothered.

    Itll be 215, but your better off going for 225/45/17

    Take a look at the neo borthers website for tyres. Its what a lot of us are going for.

    The Neuton were a lot quieter than my Conti's on the 9-5 and grip very well so if you want a decent recommendation there are not many to better them.

    Thinking of trying the Neuton myself when I have to change, they are priced very competitively.

    Try Kumho SP 31's - just fitted them to my Signum1.9 and I'm very pleased with them. Cheaper than Continentals too. The tyre size is 215/50/17, make sure that you put the correct ones on, or if you bmake a claim your insurer may not pay out.
