Mis-matching, wrong size tyres
It's tyre time and I just noticed my tyres dont match and are the wrong size! I have 225/50/R17 all round, but one front tyre is a winter tyre. Didn't notice that when I bought the car last year.
I think 235/45/R18 is the correct size, but from other threads on this forum it looks like people are using alternative sizes. I've always found my Sportwagon takes a bit of concentration to get going smoothly from a standing start if it's not loaded. Could this be the reason why?
The tyre opposite the winter tyre has worn much more than the winter tyre. I've never used winter tyres, is it likely the wear is caused by the mis-match or do I need to get the tracking checked?
Looks like I'm going to need a pair for the front, replacing the winter tyre and the worn one opposite. Anyone seen something reasonable quality at a good price recently? (The rears are still good and are Michelin.)
