    Astra H Club - Tyre Recommendations

    Hiya Everyone,

    After several trips to various tyre retailers.... it appears i have always been sold a bad choice of tyre, or been conned into paying over the top prices.

    So this time i would like to go in with some information first.

    what tyres would you guys recommend to go on the standard 15" tyres on the Club? and how much would i be expecting to pay?

    I beleive its 195/65 15

    help would be appreciated.

    For something sporty, long lasting and safe for the average driver, Falken ZE912's, very quiet, very nice handling, and very nice price too - £36 each delivered from camskill (I'd go for the V rated ones just because!):

    Cool.

    Forgot to mention i do a highish amount of motorway miles, so if they can last a while it would be a plus!

    Can't fault the Falkens, I do ~22k per annum and I'm getting more than that on the front tyres, double or more than that on rear ones.

    im running 912s on my 18s and they seem to be pretty good.

    my old tyres were a set of "conti fast response"'s but believe they have now been discontinued.
