    Default Tyre help????

    Hi all

    How is everyone?

    I'am due to have some tyres changed on my vec-c 1.9cdti sri estate.

    At the moment i have 215/50R17 Goodyears and would like to know what others are using and how they rate them, in terms of handing, comfort, wear rate etc?

    I do about 20k to 30K so would like some recommendation on what make to go for.

    Many thanks
    Ben

    With the amount of bad reports on the ntc5's I'd steer well clear. Barge and pole come to mind

    My next tyres will be either Goodyear eagle F1's or Uniroyal rainsports in 225/45/17's
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    goodyear f1 eagles good for me too and so much cheaper. type in tyres on the search at top and you'll have lots of comments to sift through 225's are more widely available and hence a lot cheaper

    I used Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 on previous cars - amazing grip - you'll notice the difference - again 225/45/17

    This size is fine as they are vx's alternative tyre size for the Vectra/Signum

    No, it'll be fine.

    Eagle F1's on mine lasted circa 25000 miles a set.

    They'll be a good choice.
