Hi all, first of all, sorry if this one has been asked a few times !
I have a 53 Signum Direct Design running on Goodyear Eagles 215/50/17s.
All four tyres are due for replacement ( Gulp )
I have been advised that it is not only cheaper but gives a handling improvement to move to 225/45/17s ??
Been nosing about on 'tinterweb and I can see Barum Bravuris for good prices and Falken 452s for not too scary money.
To explain, my car works for a living, up to 1000 miles a week self-funded mileage so I'm as much interested in getting long life and value for money as style and performance. It's usually fully laden and I have to say feels a bit understeery on the current rubber but that may just be due to low but still legal tread depth.
Any suggestions most welcome. Should I change size ? Is budget rubber a false economy ?
