    Default going for 2 new front tyres tomorrow, opinions?

    Ok so my 2008 vectra sri needs 2 new front tyres, 215 50 17. MOT is also next week so cant really put it off, plus its just common sense really.

    I have about £130 for tyres so need tyres around the £65 mark each.

    Would you personally change tyre sizes to 225 45 17 as there is a better choice of tyres for that price or stick with the original size and go for a budget tyre?

    Dillema people, help!

    225/45/17 are cheaper, so more likely to find 2 tyres in your price range.

    I went for Evergreen's on mine, but Vredestein Sport track 5's get a very good write up.

    If you do plenty of miles it makes sense to spend more and get an eco tyre, the money it will save in reduced fuel consumption over an economy tyre will pay for itself and more.

    If not, Neuton NT5000/8000's.
