    Default Tyre advice needed

    Hey guys, my tyres are currenty all 215/50W17 91W. The guy at the tyre centre has got me a good deal on a 215/50W17 with a slightly higher 95W load rating is this ok for my car???? He said as long as the speed rating is the same it does'nt make any difference.

    Just found out that if you have 2 tyres on the same axle with 2 different load ratings then ill get an advisory at its MOT, phoned him and told him i want 2 tyres with the same spec EXACTLY! Im starting to get stressed out now

    Change a full axle's worth to 225/45 R17. Cheaper than 215's and far more choice.

    Then do the other axle's tyres when they have worn out!
