Formula one auto centres - there's a 5% off code knocking about, and 2.5% topcashback and a £100 fuel card if you order before end of apr.

Paid £940 and then got £100 fuel card through Michelin.

I went for 305/30/20 rear 275/35/20 front.

Make sure you get XL

Thanks for that mate but can you clarify the size
The oem tyre size is 255 and 285. I was always under the impression that you could only go up and down tyre size by +/- 10 but the sizes you have go up by 20
I presume there no issues by the fact you have then but my fear that my tyres would stick out even further as I have 15mm spacers
Appreciate your thoughts on this

I can vouch for tyreleader, used them as I wanted a 335 rear section tyre which I found difficult to source elsewhere.

Code is TW125

Tyre leader are not UK based do you won't get the £100 fuel card.

Effective price with fuel card is £840 - bargain!

I presume they have PEM sizes too, I went for litchfield sizes

I have seen a thread on this forum which has a picture of 4 tyres and a link to a supplier priced at £890 ish from memory. But damn if I can find it again.

Can the forum shop offer a similar discounted deal for MPSS as the R888's?

Best of both worlds

guys any pictures with the 305/275 combo on their car as I'm interested to see how it looks in the arches.
As earlier in the post my fear is that the tyres stick out to far as my car has 15mm spacers

cheers
