    Default Advice On Tyres

    We need two new tyres for the SRI at the moment they have on Eagle NCT5 215/50 R17 91W But the cheapest i can find are around the £105 bracket,

    The wife now drives the car and it's a 10 mile round trip a day to work steady driving and once a month a 500 round trip to Brighton,the rears will last probably another 6 months..

    I'm thinking of buying a cheaper brand which will allow me to change all 4 for the same price,but i've never changed a brand of tyres always stuck with what's on from new..

    What's people's thoughts,was thinking maybe of these guys..

    I found that going up in tyre size - using the same rims gave me a wider chioce and they are actually cheaper......

    I have fitted mine out with 225/45/17..... Have a look at some website for a comparison. One to try is www.blackcirles.co.uk

    Bruce, those Fedarals are not a good lasting tyre. You'll be lucky to get half the milage out of them compared to the NCT5.

    http://ssl.delti.com/cgi-bin/reifenb...125119&dsco=10 - those will last a very long time, and they're pretty good as far as grip goes. My housemate got 40k on the front of his Astra out of a set of those, and they grip well as they're actually made by Bridgestone. He doesn't drive easy either!

    Vehicle : Focus

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    I would go for the next size up too 225/45/17 as they are cheaper. I have fitted them to my car no problems and more tyre for less cost. I have Michelin pilot primacy which are a good alround tyre long lasting for luxury saloon cars.

    Let me get this right then, I have the standard 17" sri alloys with the standard 215/50/17's on them. When I need new ones I can fit 225/45/17's? Does all 4 have to be changed or is just 2 at a time ok?

    Thanks

    From previous threads, I have also heard that the Nankangs are good:

    And at £67 each inc. fitting, they are a lot cheaper than the NCT5's

    Just had two 225x45x17Y goodyear F1's on the back for 90each all in. Great looking tread and the fitters said they are a top tyre and I made a good choice. Should see around 15K front 20K+ back. They also grip in the wet which is very important in this country and don't seem noisy although they are still new.

    Size upgrade also acts a slight rim protector, which will be useful if the wife is using it LOL.
