    215 40 17 is what is fitted to standard Turbo 17's

    Tyres, up to you, personal choice etc...

    I have had Toyo's which I was happy with regarding price/performance etc.

    when i bought the car back in march it had a brand new set of 'capital' tyres and they are utter $h!te!!!!
    They inspire NO confidence at all and going round corners in the wet
    is similar to going round an icy roundabout!

    i am suprisied that i have lasted this long with them!!!
