    Default Best motorway tyre

    Help....Need two new front tyres. Currently have NCT5's all round but find them pretty noisy on the motorway.

    I've done 20,000 miles in the last 8 months. 50% on the motorway.

    Ideally the new tyres need to last atleast 20k and be quiter than the NCT5's.

    The Toyo Proxes T1-R look good.

    Blackcircle.com - £125.87 fitted
    Camskill - £89.90 not fitted

    Any recommendations and best prices?

    Forgot that bit 215 50 17W's on an 07 SRI Hatchback !!

    What mileage have you had out of yours and what do you think you'll get before they need replacing?

    Thanks

    I replaced my NCT5's with Goodyear Excellences and I found road noise improved, also wear looks good (I've had them on since last November, done about 9k since and there's plenty left).

    Cost was about £150inc fitted per pair.

    Well when you do get around to changing them, change the size to 225/45/17's. Reason being they'll be cheaper and you will have a bigger selection to choose from. Plenty of people on here have done so; me included.

    Good point - forgot to add that I had changed from 215's to 225's as well.

    How does the 225 45 17's affect the speedo ?....slightly over / under ?

    I take it the tyre will look slightly wider

    Lots more choice and cheaper tyres too

    Whats the difference between W and Y rating ?

    I need to replace all of mine very shortly. I was looking at the Dunlop sport tires from Blackcircles.com £395 delivered, balanced and fitted. I've had Dunlop tires on my older Vectra before with no probelms. Anybody know of problems with them on the newer Vectra's?
