    Hi all, I've just joined and I'm looking for some advice.
    I drive a 3.2V6 auto Vectra, 2005 and the front tyres will need replacing soon. 2 questions - 1 What tyres should I buy and 2 I have cheap Prestivo's on the back with great tread but should I replace these also or are they good enough?
    Thanks and a great christmas to you all.
    Martin

    Welcome to the forum. You are opening a can of worms with asking which tyres are the best.

    Tyre choice is very personal and depends on how you drive, some people are happy with budget tyres, others are not. Make sure they are of the correct speed rating and side wall strength.

    Thanks guys. I drive her gently to and from work but like to "hear the roar" now and again :-). To be honest the Prestivo's bother me but I don't really want to buy 4 tyres if I can help it - maybe I'll bite the bullet and put 4 decent ones on - goodbye to £400 I guess!!

    Hi Mate and welcome.. Sounds a rather nice car Tyres are a very contentious issue like noses we all pick our own ha ha ha,,,,,, I think that the Prestivos on the back will be OK as they are a decent enough tyre made by IIRC Continental.

    You will get bombarded with the 215/50 vs 225/45 comments soon enough but tyres are very much pays you money.

    I have been more than happy with Nexen N8000 on mine they are fantastic value and a quiet comfortable tyre. Bought off ebay they make excellent value sense. Avoid the more tenuous Rotalla / Westlake options and the car will handle and stop just fine!
