I had this question for my Sumo a few months ago. I found that 235 tyres are almost impossible to find with anything like a decent speed rating these days. Much more choice if you go down to 225 on the rear as that's a Jag and BMW size.

are you fixed with your tyre sizes? Avons CR6ZZ I can't recommend more, despite the price

I think Alan was referring to the width rather than the diameter. These are the Avon CR6ZZ tyres he mentioned:

They have the front in the right size but you would have to go up very slightly on the rear to a 245/60x15, but they are brilliant tyres and by far the best available in 15".

These are the ones I have on my Sumo now:
- Front (http://www.mytyres.co.uk/cgi-bin/rshop.pl?dsco=110&cart_id=7622095.110.25660&sowigan=So&Breite=215&Quer=60&Felge=15&Speed=&Load=&kategorie=&Marke=Kumho&ranzahl=4&tyre_for=&x_tyre_for=&Herst=Kumho&m_s=3&rsmFahrzeugart=PKW&filter_preis_bis=&filter_preis_von=&homologation=&Label=E-C-71-2&details=Ordern&typ=R-250795) V rated
- Rear (http://www.mytyres.co.uk/cgi-bin/rshop.pl?dsco=110&cart_id=7622095.110.25660&sowigan=So&Breite=215&Quer=60&Felge=15&Speed=&Load=&kategorie=&Marke=Kumho&ranzahl=4&tyre_for=&x_tyre_for=&Herst=Kumho&m_s=3&rsmFahrzeugart=PKW&filter_preis_bis=&filter_preis_von=&homologation=&Label=E-C-71-2&details=Ordern&typ=R-250795) W rated

They have been good so far and seem quite a soft tyre which is good in my opinion on our cars

Doing a refub at the moment so plenty of time to decide but always going to be big money, thanks for the info Steve.

Avon tyres are fantastic compared to anything else.
