    Think they'l be 215x50 R17's, check your service booklet and it should give you all the ifo.

    The standard SRi CDTI 150
    Comes with 215/50R17
    Normally they are Good Year NCT5 91W
    Check the batch numbers, some are on recall

    However, these tyres are over-priced
    So when they wear look at changing to :
    225/45R17
    Save yourself about 30%

    As for wear, you are looking at about 10K miles on the front and 15K miles on the rear, as you swap them from rear to front as they wear
    If they stay on the front throughout their life they will last about 12K miles

    cheers for that mate much appreciated

    at least I'll get a few more miles this time ...it just seemed that as soon as I'd put the tyre's on they were worn again

    Thought the modern wisdom on tyres was if you swap them front to back they will wear faster due to the difference in camber, castor & toe in.
    I get over 20k from my 18's running Yokohama tyres, happy with that.

    10K out of a set, you must all drive pretty hard.

    My 19's on the last Vectra lasted 24500 miles. I fitted Dunlop Sp9000 235 35 19" tyres to the Signum (3.0 V6 CDTi) at 5000 miles, it has just clocked 19000miles and still has half the tread left.

    Tyre wear all depends on driving style, there is no reason why you should not get 25000 miles out of a set but again it depends on your driving style.
