    Default what tyres??

    It came with goodyears as standard, so far I have had to replace both front tyres (kept the same) and today one of the rears has blow (not bad for 90,000kms) any way I would like to get some new tyres, what tyres can I fit?

    I have my eyes on some 17 " 225/45Z R17 94W The brand is kinforest.
    tyres here are not cheap, so cost is also important.

    Any advice is welcome

    Ben

    Dont really know about what brand is best, but the word on here is definately to go for 225/45/17's.

    I have just swapped all the NCT 5's on my dad's SRI for 225/45 Conti's!
