I need a little help/advice..... I have a Signum Design with the 17" alloys (same as vectra SRi) They have 4 Goodyear ntc's (im worried that i have the damaged/cracking ones)would say average tread on them the car has 23k on it.
Im not tight with money i dont like to spend over the odds, if somthing is worth the price i will pay it but would like to find cheepest price for it.
I woke up this morn and i had a flat tyre, my drive is on a incline so i had to drive it up to the road (could not change wheel cos of the slope), I put the joke of a spair wheel on (thousand of pounds on a car and let down by the spair wheel ) , drove to ATS as speeds below 80kmph :P , They put some wind in the tyre and found there is a small hole in tyre wall, they sdid not look any further cos its unuseable (they did not check if this is what made it go down or if i did it moving car on flat tyre. )
This is where i need advice..... the tyres already on are 215 50 R17 (which is an unusuall size only vectra/ signum use) do i get 1 new Goodyear ntc so all 4 tyres match, type not wear ?? Been told will cost about £150
Do i get 2 new tyres good make 215 50 R17 ??? advice on make please. I recon this will cost me about £250
Do i get 4 new tyres good make 225 45 R17 ( seams to be the size every other 17" wheels use from every other make, making them much cheeper) advice on make and changing tyre size. This way i could get 4 new tyres for the price of 2, next time not have the problem of over priced wrong size cracking tyres.
Last bit of help is where in the manchester area is good for tyres?? dont mind traveling a bit to get done, i would like a good price but with good tyres.
Thanx in advance
