    Blown tire, need some suggestions on what to buy

    Looked at my car today and the passenger front tire looked a little flat, so I took it to a garage down the road to fill it up and as the guy was putting some air in the thing gave a loud POP and went flat completely, so its punctured.

    Anyhow, need some suggestions on a good replacement, Ill get full specs later but for now they look to be standard 18" low profile tires. Any good places I can get a replacement for cheapish, as I am without a job at this time.

    My tire is a Parada Spec-2 215 35 ZR18 84W, which I have just found out is bloody 98quid a tire, which is not gonna happen on my budget at the moment.

    These are cheap I know, but would it be any good?

    Cheers,

    you can get them cheap online but then the costs adds up with the valves and balancing and fitting. best to go to protyre and change both front tyres if you arent getting the same tread pattern

    you can normally get these tyres pretty cheap and they are excellant. good wear rate and they are really good for wet. FALKEN FK452

    honestly mate dont go for budget they really arent worth a w***. as benhavenhand said falken fk452 or kumho ecsta sports(ku31) are fairly low priced and highly rated i've just brought the falkens myself. and 15 quid fitting sounds about right to me
