    Default Signum Exclusiv tyre size help

    My Signum Exclusiv 18" 11-spoke alloys are all on 245/40 tyres.

    I thought the factory size is 225/45 but browsing various threads I'm a bit confused that a lot of people seem to be saying 225/40 as standard - maybe just because they're cheaper...

    But any reason why the previous owner would have gone for 245/40 all round (newish Barum's on front and worn Conti's on back)?

    I'm tempted by some Falken ZE-912 to replace the rears in as they're only £66 each for the 225/40's.

    Is this likely to be ok, given the different size staying on the front?

    225/45 is the factory fit (expensive) size, 225/40 is a common fit on here due to price, and I used 235/40 as a compromise between the two...

    I have 225/40 on the same alloy. It looks nice I think, and tires are cheap. But I would like to fit 245/40 because I like "bigfoot"

    Can you post a picture of how it looks with 245?

    Ah, ok, thanks. I could have googled this a bit better first off... I'm getting it now I think.

    The 225/40's are way cheaper than anything else. The 245/40's already on mine and your 235/40's are a bit closer to the original 225/45 spec and both look like a good compromise.

    I just didn't find many examples of people running 245/40 like me so was curious.
