    Default Best Budget Tyres

    Can anyone recommend any good budget tyres?

    I'm going to need to replace all 4 on mine before too long.

    I know that they may not grip as well as the ones that cost 2 / 3 times as much, but I will only be driving to the road conditions anyway so this doesn't bother me too much.

    At the moment, I've got the tyres that came on the car:

    Fronts: - Goodride 215 / 50 / 17
    Rears: - Michellin 215 / 50 / 17

    I want to stay with the factory size of 215 / 50 / 17, even though the 225 / 45's are slightly cheaper.

    I know that the tyres have a lot to do with wheel drone, which is why I'm asking for recommendations.

    Thanks in advance.

    If its budget tyres you are after because of cost, then why not change the size to 225/ 45, as they are a direct fit/ replacement and cheaper.
    To me its a no brainer. Bigger tyre, less money.

    I can only recommend Michelin as thats what ive always used, and they last a very very long time.

    Got a full set of nexens on mine and they are a good all rounder at £70.00 a tyre...
    Obviously not quite as good as the goodyears that came off the car, but a good compromise...
