    Default right tyre choice

    ok, so the two front boots need changing and currently have good year
    nct5's all round. after reading numerous threads on tyre makes/sizes have opted to stick the same back on. ATS wanted £140 each, local tyre place can do them for £110 each fitted, so i ordered two, is this a good price or just average?

    Why not switch to 225/45 (more choice and cheaper) and stick them on the back and current rears onto the front.

    You're on 17s? (I had assumed you were). There's no reason I can think of why you should be advised to stick to 215/50 (other than they cost more!) 225/45/17 are an alternative size listed by Vx and give you more choice and save you a few quid.
