Am after some new tyres, any recommendations,
I want brand new
i dont want some brand i have never heard off
Yes i know decent ones come at a price.
I want really good quality, fuel efficient, low road noise, and will last well, I do between 400 and 450 miles a week.

Manufature states i need, 195/60/R15 81V All tho kwik fit and national tyres dont have this size, am thinking its a missprint in hand book, and it should be 88V.

When i go to tyre sites and type my reg in, it comes back, Valid tyres could not be found in the system for this vehicle.

On my car at present are, 195/60/R15 88H

The load rating specified in the manual is the lowest you should fit: http://www.tesco-tyres.com/help/load-rating

As such, 195/60/R15 88V should be fine.

Depends how quick you want them- costco is the best place when they have there offer on (not on at the moment, its twice a year)

Other half would go straight to an ATS because weve always found them good. Ask if you have the right tyres on now, if not what should you have on , and can they supply them. Their prices are not bad at all weve found in the past, they know their subject and theres an absence of bullshit in our nearest branch down the road in Neston .Other half would pick Michelin Energy.

I was just about to recommend Manley Tyres. I went for the first time last month and they where spot on, great customer service and the work was quick to a high standard.

I bought Yokohamas from blackcircles.com and had them fitted by Crane Bank Garage at Wallasey. Great price and great service.
