    New Tyres zomg

    So i've had my astra 5 days or so and had a freaking puncture already.. The other front tyre was looking pretty bald so i thought screw it, ill get two new ones.

    My wheel/tyre measurements - 225/35/18r/87w

    Unfortunately for me, being an impoverished student, the only tyres i could bloody afford were Nankang low-pro sport tread things. Apparently a cheap make, clocking in at £89 each!
    I got quoted for some pirelli sport tyres at like £165 or more, per tyre and the same for some michelins.
    Wtf this is way too expensive! how much are you guys paying per tyre?

    I assume your wheels are no wider than 8" so it is worth checking on prices of 215/35/18. They are a little bit narrow but normally cheaper. I got priced falken 452s at that size for about £70 a wheel fitted. Real budget tyres will be less.

    £89 is a lot for budget 225s.

    Currently in a similar position and trying to decide what tyres to get for the MK5. Front two need replaced.

    Damn DTUK box.
