    Default Changing from 215/50's to 225/45's.

    I've finally been out to the garage and looked out my 4 standard sri alloys. I checked the tread on the four tyres and found that the 2 that were on the front have 3mm of tread and the 2 that were the rear have 4mm of tread left. Also 1 of the rear tyres has a bulge on the side wall of the tyre. So with an MOT in January and the winter approaching which means taking off the Snowflakes i think i'll be replacing all 4 tyres. I might keep the good tyre with 4mm of tread and try and pick up a single 17" wheel that'll do for a spare when i have my snowflakes back on.
