    new wheels and what should I do about tyres?

    I have bought some technomagnesio detriot f1's for my 1.6 hatch. came with 4 tyres all having about 6-7mm tread. However one wheel rattled slightly so took the tyre off to find the inside of the wall to be in pieces ( previous owner had not had enough pressure in the tyre ). 2 other tyres were in similar condition.

    Any way I have one Falken FK452, brand new and need another 3 tyres.

    Should I buy 3 of the same to mate the falken? or get a new set of 4? I want to keep it cheap as possible.

    where is the best place to buy tyres? any ideas?

    Cheers hope someone can give some advice

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    also check mytyres and blackcircles - both them will give a fitted price if needed.

    Those Falkens are a good tyre, so definately get a matching set.
