Exclamation Tyre help

Hello everyone,

Does anyone have any good contacts for cheap good quality tyres fitted? Need the following: Front x2 - 225/35R19. Rear x2 - 255/30R19 (NONE RUN FLAT!!)

I'm in the Lancashire area.

Also does anyone have any good recommendations for none run flats??

Your help is much appreciated.

Normally Black Circles are a fair price, order online and pick a tyre fitter near you.
Or same for E-Tyres.

Im having good results from Falken 452, and I'm quite hard on my cars

Falken 452's are probably the best tyre on a budget. Kumho Ecsta Sport KU31 are good too - I had these on my E93 and was pleasantly surprised at the grip and ride. I would've bought the Falkens had I been able to get them at the time, however.

If you can come up with slightly more cash the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta is a good tyre.

Cant comment on dealers in your area as I'm from the south.

I think you will have to go up one size with the Falkens, so 235/36 and 265/30.

Sorry that should read 235/35.

You need 235/35/19 on the fronts and 265/30/19 on the rear if you are going to go with the Falken. Loads of people on here have done this and been pleased, you will get plenty of change from 700 too.
