For those who have the 18" sport pack (look similar to ST) alloys on the Mk2.5, please could you tell me what size tyres are on them.

Thanks :)

No idea.

I use about 130 a corner, go through a front set every 10k and a rear set every 25k.

There are cheaper tyres but I'm used to thesr and use them!

Nevrr used part worns tho.

Is that per corner, or for all 4?
I need new tyres soon (different size than these) and want to check all options before I buy.
Could you provide an eBay link? (they may do multiple sizes)

Cheers :-)

Hi, the eBay seller is sorted-Richard he was selling the st alloys with the tyres so asked how much just for the tyres and they where 225 inc delivery for all 4. By the looks of it he sells more.. If you can't find him I will send a link over

Been looking at Black Circles that will do me 4 x Falken 225/40 R18 W (92), fully fitted for £352 (or £384 if I go for the pay monthly option which is very tempting).

Just been out to check the tread depth on the 3 tyres I have with the sports pack wheels, all are above 3-4 mm so I think I'm fine for now in that respect. Will order a new one for the 4th wheel and take it from there I think :)

Try http://www.camskill.co.uk/

There prices are very competitive and only £2.99 delivery! I have Goodyear Excellence 225 40 R18 on my ST. They are a very good value tyre but production seems to have stopped for them.

Any Uk wide garages do the laser alignment? I need mine doing once I put the new wheels on.

Is that the same as the tracking and balancing? So many wheel related terms coming out here!
