    Question 19'' Snowflakes- Tyres?

    Hi all.

    Just purchased myself a set of 19'' snowflakes
    My Vectra is lowered 40mm from standard.
    Any suggestions on appropriate tyre size?

    Don`t try to economise on tyres, they are what connects you to the road, I would reccomend toyo proxes, best tyres I have used, and don`t cost the earth !!

    i have been using nankang ns2's on mine. directional tread and they have been really good. Great grip in the wet and dry, maybe a wee bit noisy but good for a budget tyre.

    I've got Falken F452's on my 19's, so far so very good. Much better than the original Conti's and half the price!

    I've currently got Continental sports contacts 2 on my 18's. I have read a lot of good reviews on the 452's. Are they as quiet as the conti's? I hate noisy tyres!! I did read the rolling resistance was poor on the falkens, that was the only negative though.

    Would really appreciate a comparison on them as I'm considering replacing the contis with them.
