    Default New Tyres

    Hi all
    I am approaching time for 2 new front tyres and have been reading all the various things etc and have decided to do the size upgrade and fit Goodyear F1 tyres and swop back to front etc.
    Is this the right choice and am I paying a fair price of £176.88 all at. This is from Blackcircles.com, they seem to be the cheapest.

    Good move mate as from what I can see from some suppliers, 215/50/17 are more expensive than 225/45/17. Is it that the 215/50/17 are oddball tyres not fitted to many motors, ie. not mainstream?
