the search crieria was 245-265 z rated 35-45 profile on 17's

What is the widest tyre you can sensibly put onto a standard wheel ?

thanks

Rubber.

Steve,

Judging by the price of the SO2's, these aren't cheap. You should get a set of 245/45/17's for just over £600 inclusive if you can find them. Not sure about the others though.

For sizes, there's some info. at www.bridgestone.com showing what rims are recommended for what tyres but I don't know how the, presumably extra widths may conflict with your car...

Peter.

Yokohama AVS Sport

T6KYO and Myself are running 235/30/19 on our cars and I've had some problems with traction Yokohama for years have been getting grief for soft compound however these appear to feel soft but they not. I've done 1000 miles on mine and still not bedded in. I've been advised to go to Good Year's

tyres

i have 265 section tyres all round on my r32 with no scaping problems at all. if you live in doclands there is a really cheap tyre place as you exit the limehouse link travelling towards the city take the first right up towards comercial road. its on the left before you get to comercial round. It looks incredibly dodgy, but is not and is cheap (4* 265/40ZR17 goodyear eagle F1 =£500 fitted!) hope this help any other london folk

I've been using Yokohama AVS Sports for a while now and really rate them as a trackday tyre, these prices look a little steep though! - The size is correct for a Skyline....

On mine I have Pirelli P7000's, but they are 215/40/18 all round?

Not sure of standard size on the GTS-T, but 215 width seems a little skiny for rear and even the front. I'm guessing as they are after market alloys they came as standard or to save cash?

What should it be or what do u all think would be a better size?

Also I'm quite happy with the P7000 in the dry but not tried in the wet yet?:rolleyes:

lock stock

warren

thats the one!...the guy in there is called paul if i remember correctly. I was hard up for cash at the time so needed to find the cheapest tyres going. Unbeliably the tyres were very well balanced (had the car upto 125 with no vibration at all). I will be goning there soon to get some tyres for the "quat". fortunatley they considerably smaller, hence cheaper). londoners check it out
