    No not at all the mileage is verified by mot and sic records.

    Need to get some rear tyres and want to try and get the same ones.

    Many on here will say there is far better out there than the Goodyears, they are noisy hard riding and not all that grippy plus twice the price of some very good competitors

    If you use the alterntive size recommend by Vauhall and many on here, since they are a popular size tires are cheaper.

    normal size is 215/50/17
    alternate size is 225/45/17

    load ratings etc vary but IIRC 91
    Speed rating anything from H on i think is fine, Vectra's are nay that fast
    XL Extra load tyres are not specified/needed on a vectra but you can have them if you want, no real benefit

    will need to check this as i'm not 100%


    From Goodyear you can get f1 asymmetric 2 for around 100 fitted a corner for the 17" sri, and they are very highly rated but are expensive.
    are a few specs of them various speed ratings/load ratings and (R1) if it has this in the name of it, its a softer compound so more grip but less life.
    also that often receive good reviews and around the 80-100 quid fitted area are

    falken 914 or 452
    uniroyal rainsport 2
    Continental conti sport contact 5
    Verdestein ultrac sessanta and cento


    Some lower priced that I have seen good reviews of are
    Nexeen n8000

    I have looked for Goodyear NCT5's but can't find them in anything other than run flats these days. I was getting good mileage out of them, changed to original rears at 66,000 miles and was getting around 25k out of the fronts. Don't fancy rung flats due to the hard sidewalls.

    The rears I suspect are originals at nearly 80k but one is misshaped has a bulge which I need to sort.

    found the Goodyears mentioned above for just over £100 each which is a good price.

    Thanks all!

    NCT5 - worst tyres I've ever had on my Vectra. They lacked grip, feel, and no feedback through the steering wheel, etc.

    Uniroyal Rainsport 2's - best tyres I've ever had on my Vectra. Stick to the road like poo to a stick.

    Varied by year, unable to tell what year the car is from your profile
    As above, in most cases Good Year NCT 215/50 R17 91W was fitted
    However, the first owner could also specify other manufacturer tyres (for additional cost) as was quite common with some company car orders
