Just taken delivery of a set of 4 ling long winter tyres. Although they are budget tyres they are proper winter tyres with sipes in the tread and the snowflake motif.

I bought them direct from a trader in Germany but they sent the wrong size and won't take them back.

they are 175 65 15.

we trial fitted them to my car but they are just too tall.

170 posted for all 4.

205 40 17 winter tyres are really pricey. I was looking for some for the van. Cheapest I could find were 90 quid.

17's are soo 1996 - get some 8x15's
