Tyre Size Help
« on: 16:23, Mon 14 July 2008 »
I have just brought a set of standard phase 2 alloys but need to know what tyres are best to put on them?

Is the standard size 195/55/13?

if so where's best to get these from and what tyre make do you recommend?

any help would be great, thanks.

I had some 195/45/13 on my old GTT, awesome tyres but they wouldn't look very good on a standard height car :)
Some people stick 185/60/13's on as they are cheaper i believe.

I've had 185/60 on mine before, they look a bit 'ballooney'  :shock:
