GTV tyres

I'm need to replace my tyres on a 2.0 GTV (96)

Every tyre site I look at says I should be having 205/50/16 W however, the ones on the car at the mo are 205/55/16 W

Which is right?

NB I know that mine, because its a 96 plate originally had steelies on it, but someone replaced them with the basic 16" alloys...

Re: GTV tyres

Read this thread: (Tyre Recommendations)

I'm running on Pirellis and having been happy all summer must admit that they dont like damp saltly roads, gonna try something else next time.

Just out of interest why are 205/55R16W so much cheaper?

Re: GTV tyres

Any good Tyre firm will give you the right advice so go with your budget and fone around ! . Had quotes from 80 to 300 a pair but all that's usless in any weather if you dont keep an eye on your tyre pressures as you will Drift like a JAP !
