    Hiya m8, go with 225/45 WR 17 (btw what is ur rim size????) or go with 225/55 WR 16 both Michelin Primacy HP or go with the 225/45 YR 17 Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 for the better grip. Or go with the 225/40 YR 18 Michelin Pilot Sport PS2, u can get them from Costco in ur area.

    Pilot Sport PS2 or Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymetric. For the mid-sector price range consider the Vredestein Ultrac. Used all three on the Astra (225-45ZR17 XL), the Goodyears are probably the best, the Vred and Michelin having similar performance as eachother.

    That said, I'm probably going to go back to Bridgestone Potenza RE050, they're a much more durable tyre than the others mentioned (don't tend to pick up cuts from sharp objects on the road/gravel etc). I've had a good run with the Bridgestones, and they're an excellent handling tyre with good all round grip and are very progressive when pushed hard.

    225/45R17 91W or 94W
    The options from there are quite diverse, so need to know the budget

    Fit the new tyres on the rear and use up the last of the 215/50R17 currently on the rear

    My recomendation is go for all season tyres so you get good grip in snow/wet rather than just dry, nothing funnier than a stuck driver in the snow with shinney wheels and going no where.!!

    You will pay a bit more but deffo worth it.
