Types of tyres..

Just recently bought a set of Marshall Matragt TX tyres which cost me just less than 225 for the complete set.. I was just wondering if anyone else had used these tyres and what they where like? Kinda cheap, I going to be getting a set of Goodyear NCT5's but they didnt have any in stock...

Thanks muchly for your replies

Oh what does anyone think of a set of OZ Speedline alloys? a 17" model, the 18"'s just a little bit too pricey for me!

But how much are your tyres? I wouldnt mind going wider rather than larger.. 225/40/17 would be fine, but 215/35/18... I think thats a bit much!! Surely the 17" is enough? :shock:

They are gonna cost me a packet!! Oh well, good job my brother in law works at Kirkham tyres isnt it!

EDIT: Im going for wider tyres but Im aiming for 17's as the cost will be cheaper overall. What do people think of 5 spoke on the Scoobies? Somehow I dont think that they look at good as the multi spoke models.. Anyone else get this feeling?
