    Vehicle : Insignia CDTi SRi NAV 160

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : A20DTH

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 88000

    Default A few weeks with my new tyres and.............

    Per previous thread http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=58878

    What can I say I purchased some second hand 4 x Sport Contact 2's 235/45/18 a couple of weeks ago and so far the tyres have been excellent. Very low road noise, no tram-lining and excellent grip in the dry and wet. The tyres had only a very small amount of wear on them and cost £40 each fitted!

    Other plus points:

    They fill the arches more and look great with my BK999's 18 x 8J's, I suppose I had better post some pics up

    My speedo reads correct in that it matches my satnav speed as well

    So the outcome is I would recommend Continental Sport Contacts 2's for the Vectra C

    Just goes to show, one mans silk purse and all that!

    Mine came on the OE Continentals, absolutely hated the things. Sadly, the rears just won't wear out! Not with the miles I do these days!!

    Exactly the same here - the Astra had OE Contis on the back when I bought it. After nearly spinning out twice within 3 days on greasy roundabouts, swapped them for Eagle F1-A and no more Mk2 Escort antics.

    Yep. FK452's, 235/35/19's.

    Honestly reckon they are not too far away from Eagle F1's.
