    Hi mate,

    I really need to do this soon (I'm thinking in the next couple of weeks) but could maybe do with some cheaper options. Maybe drop me a PM so we don't clutter the thread?

    Thank you!

    EDIT : Maybe Kumho I'Zen?

    Yokos are W-Drives

    205/55/16 from Yokohama are 88.07+VAT per tyre - and in stock.

    If anybody really wants winter tyres, order them now. Whether it's from us or elsewhere, they're selling out everywhere fast, so dont hang about.

    on a front wheeled drive car would you need a set of 4? or would 2 suffice for the going/stopping/steering?

    id assume summer tyres on the rear would make things a bit interesting

    4 tyres !!!!!

    If you hit the brakes in snow / ice and you only have fronts, it's pretty much guaranteed that your rear end with pirouette around the front and you I'll nd up facing backwards.

    The front of th car will have loads of controll but the rear won't keep up with what you are asking the fronts to do

    What Johnny said

    I found in my S14a driving along a cambered road it was the rear that often just lost grips and fell, was a total pain

    Do you know what the cheapest winter tyres you can get for the following are -

    Not sure what profiles I could get away with..

    2 * 17 x 9.5

    &

    2 * 17 x 9 wheels?

    And

    16 x 7 / 16 x 8 wheels (not 100% on the sizes for these)

    Ideally want to run my 17s but everywhere im looking its like 130.00 per corner

    17x9.5 are minimum 245 really.

    17x9 are 235 minimum.

    16x7 are 195

    16x8 are 215.

    You can obviously stretch them an run smaller ones, but that's the sizes we'd have to recommend.

    You'll be looking for 17s at around 350-400 for a set.

    16s will be around 300 a set, possibly a bit less.

    I cant quote exactly as all stocks are now in a constant state of flux I could quote cheapest now, and by tomorrow they could well be gone.

    If you're after really cheap I'd suggest ebay, or finding some spare steels out of a scrappy

    Ben,

    Can you get a price for 2 x 225 40 18 and 2 x 255 35 18 delivered (or something with a similar rolling radius for the rear)

    Not bothered about brand too much
