    Tyre sizes?

    It seems that i need new tyres, i checked and my 51 Astra g 1.6 SXI currently has 205/50/R16, however kwik fits tyre search thing doesnt allow 205/16 in R16? so im a tad confused, i have the standard SXI alloys.. Any help would be great.

    Look at the spoeed rating, its usually V/W/Y/Z meanign that each of these correspons to how fast the tyre can perform at

    Go for the best tyre you can afford. The R in R16 just stands for it being a Radial tyre

    For tyre recomendation look on a few sites in here
