    Do you have those on the other end of the car as well? If you're mixing tyres then a warning would be that someone on here a while back lost control and crashed because 2x tyres were grippier than the other 2.

    It's not a good thing to mix.

    I recommend Toyo Proxes as I haven't had any trouble with them.

    They're very good in the dry and wet.

    You're in Manchester so get down to http://www.wheel-base.co.uk/site/ in chadderton.

    My 17" TOYO's cost £57 each from there, fitted.

    That was a good deal.
    Ive ordered them now anyway + the rears are no way near needing replacing.
    I think I should be Okay, reviews say there a fairly decent budget tyre and considering itsguna cost me £100 for two tyres fitted i guess i can't complain.

    Got my old alloys from wheelbase.

    yeah I was really impressed with wheelbase to be honest

    my mum needed new tyres though for her MX-6 though and for 15" they wanted £100 per tyre or something.

    I guess 17's are cheaper because they're so popular now.

    www.bodystyleuk.com

    Got my suspension done there and don't have any complaints.

    Saw a paint job they'd done on a Civic Type R and it looked spot on.
