    Hey people,

    Can someone recommend me some good 225/45/18 tyres, that performs well in dry & wet, long life, and value for money.

    Thanks.

    the tyre sizes mentioned give a 15mm diameter difference which is quite a bit, the 40s appear to be somewhat cheaper.

    I'm running Kumho on 45s and love them, excellent grip in both wet and dry even when down to low tread, BUT only getting about 15k out of the fronts.

    I use 225/45/18's with XP2 wheels, I went for Kumho KU39 Esta Le Sport 95Y XL (mine is 3.0 CDTi)

    They seem a good all round tyre, not exactly cheap but cheaper than Conti's etc
