    Default Tyres any1?

    I am looking to purchase 4 new tyres for my 2.0dTi Signum Elite. Does anyone have any recomendations for the make which suits these cars the best and if the best size to get is 215/50/17 or 225/45/17?

    Any help would be much appreciated!!

    Each to their own on this one. Some say the more you pay, the better combination of grip and wear you get, others go for value for money and some go for the look of the tread pattern.

    Me, I run NCT 5s on my GSi and don't have any problems, good all rounders. Other members wouldn't touch them though. You may get "less expensive" tyres that are equal in terms of grip to the mainstream brands but only last say 10k miles whereas well known brands MAY offer at least twice this mileage.

    The choice is yours I'm afraid.

    There's a guy who's been selling dozens of pairs of (German made) Goodyear NCT5s for £115 (the pair) including shipping. Do a search on ebay for 215 55 17 and see if he's selling them at the mo (got mine last week).
