    Default Which Winter tyres on your Insignia

    My SRi standard tyres are 245/45 18 Conti's.

    Which/what size tyres and steel rims should I fit as spare set of wheels for use in conditions as we've had the last few days.

    thanks

    Hi I have the same model , well same wheels at least. SRI Tourer.

    Problem is the wide tyres we have don't handle much more than 2/3 inches of snow.


    Provided you reduce the tyre width to 195 or smaller the car will cut through snow better. If you have ever seen a Rally car, in the snow stages, they have really skinny tyres.


    I went for 16 inch steel wheels and 185/55/16 Nanking Winter tyres. They look terrible, especially with wheel trims. The car sits lower by about 1 inch, but does not cause any issues. Good thing is wear is split across 2 sets of tyres and I always look forward to fitting the 18inch alloys in March.
