    oh joy...they are ZR's which equates to approx £160 a corner....If I was paying /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    On that basis I'd be consuming nearly £500 of tyres per year if they wear the same as the Golf, which makes £50 a month a bit of a snip.

    Do you know what the rating for the 17's are?? It just stats 225/45 R17, I took the monthly service thingy as well so I'm not worried. Do you know what happens if I change my wheels to 18" is the monthly thingy still valid??

    They are Y rated, and according to blackcircles are about £130 quid a corner fitted for conti 2's.
