    Default Time for new tyres. Your opinions please!

    The time has come for 4 new boots for the limo!

    Been looking at numerous makes and Falkens always come out as one of the best for performance and price. Been trawling numerous websites for prices and reviews and it looks like the tyre suppliers on eBay come out the best for price so, which would you go for on the following:

    TYRE 1

    TYRE 2

    If not these, then i may go for a set of Khumo 712 Ecsta Supra's.

    Cheers guys,

    Paul.

    Shouldn't they be 225/45/18 or 235/40/18?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Fair enough, I just thought the size in the book for 18's was 225/45.

    According to my manual, the Vectra C should be :
    215/55R16
    225/45R17
    225/45R18
    235/35R19
