    Default Elite Tyres

    Hi

    Just joined, found lots of help already! Just a quick question, does anyone know what are the quietest tyres for a 2.8 turbo elite 215/50/17

    Cheers

    Mick

    Welcome.....

    All I can say is avoid Goodyear NCTs like the plague. They are the noisiest tyres on the planet. Ruins the 'Elite' experience altogether.

    Falkens seem to be the usual recommendation on this site. I'll be trying the Falkens once my wretched NCTs have worn out (the damn things last forever).

    Also, consider switching to 225/45/17. More choice. And cheaper.

    HTH.

    Uniroyal rainsport 2's get my vote.

    As already said, change to 225/45/17. Bigger choice and thus will be cheaper than 215/50/17

    You'll probably notice once you've got rid of the NCT5's, the handling will be transformed as well.

    Kumos get my vote, changed over to them only two weeks ago and what a difference! Good tyres aswell, new merc's are getting fitted with them as standard now.
