    Default Vectra Tyres

    On my 2.2 Design the tyres are 215 x 55 x 16" (I think) and I am nearing the time when I need to replace them. I have looked at the comments on this site and Black Circles Site and they all give good info on the best tyre for wet, dry etc. But I noticed a comment some where that the above tyre size is not common and I should be able to go to a 225 width as these are cheaper and have a better choice. Is this true? can I go to the next width?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've seen threads about changing 215/50 17 to 225/45 17 but can't recall any on 16s. However, a quick check on http://www.tyresave.co.uk/tyresize.html reveals that going to 225/50 16 results in a -1.87% difference in diameter. Having said that, not too sure that 225/50 16 is a common size either.
