    Tyre recommendations - Astra Sport 1.8

    Hi all,

    I need to get some new tyres but don't want to spend a fortune.

    I haven't modded my car at all so they are standard size, any advice will be helpfull.

    Thanks.

    don't buy gt champiro. they were on my car and are crap in the wet. always remember when buying tyres that the contact area is only the size of the palm of your hand. if you drive fast fit decent tyres

    Do like the look of the T1-R's but once you know a tyre it's difficult to change...
    I have always stuck with the T1-S's, had no problems with them, up to you
    though mate.
