looking to get all four tyres replaced on my escort RS2000 alloys , they are 195 60 15 profile tyres ,

 

 

im looking at around £120 in total and wondering what sort of a tyre i can expect at this price ?

 

and can i lower the profile of the tyres in this price range?

why did they ever have a 60 profile fitted??? rs2k / gti profile is 50

 

and is £120 in total inc fitting etc?

 

 

As JC said, the tyres on rs2k wheels should be 195 50 15 :)

 

Have a look on here Camskill

 

The correct tyres are 195/50/15.

 

If you're on a budget I recommend the Federal SS-595's.

 

I listened to stu on this on my old gti on my 16's, really good tyres they didnt compare too badly to the t1-r's that i did have on

 

Im waiting for camskill to get my size back in stock for the mondeo then il be ordering some for that :)

195/50/15 are the standard tyres arent they?

 

120 for 4....I cant find anything in that price range. Try checking ebay or scrappers for part worns...or at kwik fit for special deals that they sometimes do... (However kwik fit do buy one get one free on prices that are well above online retailers prices so the cost of 4 is pretty much the same as online prices anyway)

 

Blackcircles prices are around 50 quid per corner for the majority of brands.. From budget ditchfinders at 41 quid each to toyo t1rs at 49 quid each to goodyear eagle F1s at 73 quid each.....I know what i'd choose

It is...How bald are your rears? If theyre legal then they will do fine for a little so do the fronts now and the others next month..

 

failing that then

a)Get used tyres

b)Get a full set of alloys with usable tyres on them for well under your budget via ebay

 

Here you go

£42.15 each for F1's off "best buy tyres" - although £10 delivery fee on top per order.

 

£46.90 each off "my tyres" posted

 

I wouldn't have anything else in the summer!

Get a pair of new ones on the front and some part worns on the back if you dont want part worn all round.

 

If they back ones still have some miles left in them, just do the front ones :) and get some decent ish tyres
