    I get mine via Oponeo on internet. Price includes delivery to my door, then I just take them to my trusted tyre fitter who fits them without marking my rims. Last ones I got were 255/35/20 Fulda sportcontrol 2 for 128 each but they do a range from about 50 depending on your budget.

    Just a thought though, mail order might not be best bet in current situation, my tyres came direct from Germany.

    Even if you decide to go straight to a tyre fitter the online sites are worth a look because they usually let you compare side by side and check reviews. Consider going up to 255 also, mine were 245 but I changed them all to 255 for better ride and rim protection. Makes only a 1% difference to overall gearing.

    I use my local fitters to get my tyres, private local family run business who I'd sooner give the business to, as well as they have a leverless tyre machine.

    When i had my Facelft A VXLine with 19" Atomics, just before my wife got the car, I put 2 new tyres on and they scratched the alloy badly - would only offer a refurb. So I took the cash and replaced the wheel. Can't happen with leveless machine.

    I also fitted 255/35/20 on my 20" biclour wheels. MUCH better. 180 ea for 4 Goodyear Assymetric 3 F1

    That's ok, I'm with you, much prefer 255 no going back. Would recommend them to anyone.

    I go to my local chemix (protyre ) ever since I've had my Vectra and insignias after that always have falkens fitted. Excellent in the dry and wet,they plough through standing water like the roads dry, no twitching at all. Lol
