    Recommended Tyre Size

    seeing as my H came with 14 inch rims when i first got it, i decided to get some alloys on it. got some brand new ones off ebay for cheap with new tyres.

    the tyres are 205/40/17 and they are really bad. i find that the tyre growl is unbearable. its soooo LOUD! secondly i seem to wheelspin in 2nd quite easily when wet, however this may just be my heavy right foot. another issue i have is that the wheels look tiny because the tyre looks very skinny in the big arch.

    so...whats the recommended tyre size for 17s? and also what brand would you guys suggest going with for general road use, no more than £50 a tyre.

    For £50 a tyre you wont get a decent make imo. Not even in 17

    Look for deals on various websites or like kwik-shit or something like that.

    Tyre size is dependant on the width to but 205 or 215 is normal

    On an H, 215-45/17, though most people use 225-45/17 as it's a more popular size. You should be paying no less than £80 a tyre - anything less you're into budget territory.
