Hi All

have searched the forum but still need to ask: if anyone could advise Re WINTER tyres for my 2001 C4

Am repatriating the car from Malta back to Uk soon , as you can imagine winter tyre stock in Malta is exactly zero....

Currently on
225/40- ZR18 Front and 265/35 ZR18 Rear

Am presuming I have the correct original sizes on, having never changed them before, but can't seen to find correct size Winter tyres for the Rear of the Car in the UK.

Don't mind changing size a little as long as its safe and it doesn't upset the FWD systems

there is potential to change out the tyres in Europe on the way back , but given my druthers, I'd rather ship the car and fit some in the UK.


thanks for any info, greatly appreciated

Steve

Thanks for that Spike

Reassuring to know I have the correct set of boots on as its a 7 owner car

Seems like the usual suspects -Kwik Fit and Black Circles have no availability

will keep looking

Steve
