  • Tyre Time!

    Well the time has come for some new boots for the arctic. 15,700 isn't bad is it? Only need two but was hoping to find out if anyone had tried different sizes 235/240's, would these sizes cause rubbing? Also was going to keep the conti's so they were all the same but **** are they a bit pricey . Feedback appreciated.

    Cheers

    Not bad at all mate

    You can run 240's but as they're not as per the manufacturers fitted size you may need to declare to your insurance; yes that is enough of a reason for them to invalidate your policy should the worst happen.

    The 235/35/18's are good enough mate if not pricey.

    There are various alternatives to the Conti's; have a look here

      People recommended the Falken 452s for a all round tyre.
      As Tom said there are hundreds to choose from.

      Are you from the Leicetershire area? If so Pm me for prices

        Although some have said the Falkens are crap when cold and only reasonable when warm... its all personal opinion and preference at the end of the day

          Lol. When I can get myself Falkens for £75 (cost) I'm not that fussed.

          What are the ultimate best Tyres for the corsa? Toyos? Reason I ask is I only have to pay trade cost. Might aswel go all out

            Bought some budgets around a month ago, nangkang's, 2 tyres, fitted, alligned, and all that for £220 which is not too bad.. They seem to be performing fine in the wet.

              Honestly there is no definitive answer. I'm currently using Avon ZZ3's and despite horror stories from others i think that they're just as good as the Conti's that were on the car.

              People rate the Michelin PS2's highly but they're soft so wear quite quickly.... Like i said its all down to personal opinion, trial and error

                    Falcons 452 are good tyre for the money! I had 2 fitted and balanced for under 200 quid, I had conti's on b4 I found they struggled in the wet but all round tyre for me is defo the 452's for performance and cost

                      Cheers for the feedback folks. I've have Toyo's on my cavalier turbo and they weren't that pricey due to it being the standard wheels and they look and perform good but I've stuck with the conti's getting them for £142 (slightly better than £172) each for the sprortscontact 3 rather than 2. Pretty much the same tyre I reckon. If I was changing all 4 I might have went for the falkens or toyo's again. But again cheers for the replies.

                          I've got falkens on the front on mine and they have been decent no problems with them.

                            You only get what you pay for.

                            Stick with proper brands, Contis, Michelins, Goodyears, Bridgestone, Pirelli etc.

                            Why scrimp on tyres when you have a performance car
