    What size are yours ? Mine are the 215/50/17's which seems an odd profile !

    I've fitted Michelin's this time round and found them to be very good.

    Not the Signum particularly, it's the 3.0V6 CDTi (being the heaviest engine in the range) that needs the higher load rating - whether it's in a Vec or Signum.

    Have you thought about going to 225/45/17s? You then get much more choice - so maybe more chance of the 95w as well as being a bit cheaper than the not so common 215/50/17.

    The 225/45/R17 are 94 load rating.

    The 215/50/R17 in 95 load rating is a rare size and they charge for them! (in good makes that is)

    I am now using Pirelli P Zero Nero and the fronts are wearing very well at 14,000 so far, backs only fitted 500 miles ago with the NCT 5's changed at 43,500 with 2 - 3 mm left on each.

    When I wanted NCT95s last year they were on a 3 month back order but when I went for 2 Pirelli's this time they were unavailable in the UK, Germany and Italy! My local dealer had 14 NCT5s 95W in stock though, Brucey. Got 2 Pirellis via mytyres from Holland and cheaper than in the UK including 2 day delivery.

    I thought about doing this but was worried about any insurances issues in the event of an accident.
    Could they get out of paying if you had a different size tyre on from the original?

    Or am I just to old and cynical

    No, they can't wriggle out of it. The 225/45/17 is a size listed and recommended by VX for the Vec C/Signum, so no worries there.
