    Thanks for your input John, I'm glad you've posted it because as far as I can tell you're the first person to bite the bullet and fit the Galaxies so I'm pleased you're getting on OK with them, and your advice about going up from 235 to 245 is very helpful. Cheers !

    Hi Alex, I presume you'll be picking them up yourself as yr only around the corner - how do you feel about picking mine up at the same time ....and then visiting your parents to drop mine off en route ?

    I thought you'd gone down the route of stick on lettering ?

    -Just remember if you don't want 'Galaxy ' plastered on the tyre wall, to fit them with the painted lettering on the inside of the wheel!

    Sadly my other half has plans for the boot next time we come up your way.... I suspect if I bought a 12.5 luton as a daily driver she'd fill that for a weekend away too!

    I like the lettering I've got on currently. But I just think the galaxys will be a step up.

    Regards

    North Hants Tyres have a 20% black friday deal this weekend ! (Apart from getting tyres at a discount I have no financial interest here)

    In the end I went for the 235's - the helpful chap at North Hants Tyres said they 245's could be half an inch taller - this would have caused me real clearance issues....

    - so basically No VAT on top of the advertised price.
    £109 for a V-rated 15" tyre is pretty damned good imho.

    I bought my Galaxies from North Hants to replace my BFG's, they were 30+ years old. The ride quality has vastly improved, no shimmy at speed and low road noise. Highly recommended in my opinion, for what it is worth. Don't forget the 10% discount offered because we belong to the CRC.
