    Default What tyres and Pressures for 1.8

    Hello everyone

    I've just discovered this superb site which appears to be a mine of helpfull information by true enthusiasts.

    I have just purchased a facelifted (2006) Vectra 1.8 Life which I am rather pleased with. It is miles better than my old shape vectra.

    I have noticed the much bigger wheels than previous 205/55/16

    I will be looking at replacing the fronts soon ....should I stick with the Pirrelli P7's that are standard fit or are there better??

    Also 29 PSI for the front seems a little low for such a big car?

    Your advises

    29psi is what the book says.

    If the current tyres have worn evenly across the tread then stick with 29psi.

    If they're more worn in the the middle, they're over-inflated.
    If they're more worn on the outside, then they're under-inflated.

    Goodyear Excellence is a nice alternative to the P7.
