Looking for 2 x tyres (225 x 50 x R15) 5 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 70
Anyone have a pair of good rear tyres for sale. Size needed 225 x 50 x R15. I am based in Galway. Open to suggestions.

If anyone is looking for 195's Camskills in the UK are doing a GREAT deal at £34 each!!!
Unfortunately no 225's in stock.......

Do you have any pics and tyre name?

Are Sonar part of Nankang group? If so I am not a fan. Anyone ever use Kumho, heard that they were good.

Where are you based. I am in Galway city.

Have you tried Clonboo tyres - hes local to you www.cloonbootyres.com/

See what he has in stock (id be interested how he compares to online)

Falken Ze912's are decent man using them myself - road noise improved massively once I changed:

I got 2 ze912s for less then €200 delivered 2 years ago - 3 popular tyre online companies below - camskill have gotten very expensive when you factor in the postage.

Camskill £92.85 x 2 + £19.00 Postage to ROI = £204.70 *247.16 Euro

camskill.co.uk/m53b0s295p97744/Falken_Ty...s%3A_2_Noise%3A_71dB

Eiretyres €114,50 x 2 + Free Shipping to ROI = €229.00

www.eiretyres.com/cgi-bin/rshop.pl?dsco=...ern&typ=R-148772

Oponeo - €110 x 2 + Free Shipping to ROI = €220.00

thats a great price for falkens , was that through the garage or did you order them elsewhere and get them fitted? - I was quoted €380 fitted uo here in the smoke.

Thanks for all the options folks.

I have a few options but I might take a look at the Ballybrit Exaust Centre tomorrow and check out the Falkens.

Punky what did you get in the end?

www.oponeo.ie seems a good site and a bit cheaper than the others. Is it as good?

Still didn't get tyres sorted out. Followed up with Ballybrit Trye & Exhaust Centre a number of times but didn't hear back. I have only spotted cheap and expensive stuff online. Anyone?

I ended up buying Nankang in the end...pretty much no alterative, certainly from local tyre centres. No complaints so far but early days...

Re: Looking for 2 x tyres (225 x 50 x R15) 5 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 72
Nankang are an ok tyre as far as i know.
Ur mad buying them, i take it you bought new ones...
i just get whatever i can for the back,
got a pair of fulda tyres on the back before 225/50/16 they only lasted about 2 weeks
after that i said never again am i putting new tyres on the back.
I do however get very good runflat tyres on the front and they last over a year.
I recommend use runflats because if you ever get a blow out at high speed the tyre will just be soft and you will have a lot better chances of stopping safely

My 2 cents you should get the best tyres you can on an mr2, especially for the rear wheels.
A proper staggered set up is also very important.
A powerful rwd car with a mid engine layout and shit tyres = accidents.
I've found camskill to be very good for tyres in the past.

I called them again but they said they cannot get them. I found another option but they are 215/65/R15 - Starmax Novaro ST532.

www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Starmaxx/Novaro-ST532.htm

Anyone tried these or have an opinion?

Anyone running 225/55/15 rear tyres on regular alloys (mk2 15")?

Spotted these: Uniroyal R440 Rallye - 225/55/R15 Z TL

www.camskill.co.uk/products.php?show=97516

I checked the tyre comparison and is is within 3.63 difference in diametre but they recommend no different than 2.5% so unsure what to do...

False alarm. They have 3 but they were manufactured in 2007. New NCT rule says tyres will need to be 6 yrs or younger next year. The garage was going to do me a favour and charge me €94 each!!!! Some favour since I would have to change them at the end of February 2015... Won't be using them again for my general tyre purchases.
