    Try Asda tyres, you may get a better deal? I have just used them and they are fitted at a local garage, just enter your postcode. They were much cheaper then Blackcircles etc

    I have just fitted some Sailun Atrezzo's, they have very good ratings for Wet Grip, noise and wear, your size comes in at £70.60 fitted!

    Well fit them, just be aware that your speedo with over read (e.e. speedo reads 60, you are actually doing 58) and you may have a slightly harsher ride due to the reduced profile.
