I bought an S4 some months ago and noticed the tyres have some wear and cracking to the sidewalls - not likely to get through the MOT. Looking at the sizes, I have 205 50 R15 86V on the fronts (loving the V rating, I need earplugs for 70MPH in the S4 let alone 160MPH+) and I have 225 50 R15 91Vs on the rear. I want to replace all four and looking to use 205s all round. The garage, finding no reference information on the car, is recommending I replace like for like and saying it will not handle the same with a narrower tyre on the rear or will be lower to the ground (they seem to be making it up).
I can't find anything that suggests I should be putting wider tyres on the rear. Can anyone confirm that 205 50 R15s will be ok all round
Hoping this will be the case as I can get a very good deal on 4 x BARUM BAR BRAVURIS 2s that seem to get good reviews for a budget tyre in dry conditions
