    Talking I've been spending money again

    I had to do it having a look on LMF's site looking at the wheels as one dose so phone them up to get some more info on them and endded up buy them for that price can't go wrong

    http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/store/p...at=1518&page=1



    Now what I need to know is what is the best size trye to use? is the Avon 225/40/18's ok for a stight swap over from my old SRi Goodyear 17's? as I have been quoted from a very good friend of mine £438 for a set witch I thought was very good. Oh and one other thing will i have to lower the SRi estate suspension?

    Thank's Jay

    Yep, 225/40/ZR18 is a good size, thats what i run, althoughvit does put your speedo slightly out.

    I rate Avon's highly, but they do wear quickly as they are quite soft, ut they grip well. I shall be putting Avon's on mine after Christmas when i replace the cheap cr*p thats on there now!

    As for lowering it, I personally would go -45mm, but i am biased, but -30 will still make it look good!
