    Default 2.2 Vectra Direct - Which tyres???

    Hey lads,

    Recently bought a Vectra Elite on a 55plate

    The tyres currently on there are 215/55/17's they are the standard Elite alloys,

    Anyone got any suggestions on tyre make's and sizes?? Ive seen on another post someone suggested instead of the 215/55/17 to go for 225/45/17, better range and prices apparently, anyone got any experience of doing the same etc??

    Im lookint at some mid range tryes good for all weather conditions, as soon as the tyres are on im going on a 2000+ mile trip around Ireland and the weather over there is as unpredictable as the road surfaces....

    Cheers in advance

    good day mr murphy.

    225 45 17s are a fair bit cheaper. avoid nct5s unless they are free :-)

    There is lots of info if you search. just type tyres into the search box. As far as i know- your tyres (215 55 17- as you said) are not a recommended size- from what i've read its only 215 50 17 or 225 45 17. the size 215 55s would throw the speedo out. E.g. when it shows 60 you'd be doing 62, with the 225 45s when the speedo shows 60 you'll be doing 59. I think all the vectras with 17" rims are programmed for 215 50. so thats a consideration and the bigger tyre could possibly affect handling- though I'm not sure.
