    Tyres

    can anyone help me out. I need to replace the tyres on my car (18 inch std cayman S wheel). The car came with Continental sport contact 2, and as i'm only replacing the rears thought i would stick with these. What detail do i need to pass onto the replacement tyre place to ensure this is done properly? have taken all the figures off the side of the tyre, but have heard ref to 'N' ratings and so on - what does this all mean?

    obviously i want to get the tyres recomended by porsche for the car, so want to ensure i know what i'm doing when i go to an independent to get them changed.

    thanks in advance for your help.

    Re: Tyres

    N rating is the official stamp of approval from Porsche - you need to quote that number (N0/N1 etc etc) when you enquire about prices.

    The general concensus seems to be that the Michelins are the best tyre in both 18 and 19" sizes - the rears last about 2/3rds the distance of the fronts irrespective of tyre brand.

    Re: Tyres

    Percymon - cheers. Got them sorted yesteday, went to kwik fit and paid Pounds490 for both rears all in (continental). This seems expensive but was one of the cheaper quotes i obtained. Have i been ripped off?

    Re: Tyres

    My last set of 18" Rears, Michelin PS2 N3, were Pounds424 fitted, from local ProTyre, part of the Micheldever Tyres group. I thought the Contis were cheaper. But at least it's a deed done. Time is money.

    Re: Tyres

    Michelin PS2 All the way

    Yikes - was that with their 15% off for 2 tyres offer ?

    I paid Pounds220 each for 265/35ZR19 Mich PS2 from my local tyre depot

    Re: Tyres

    I just bought a set from tirerack.com saved $1k (~30%) from best price I could get here. Only hassle was paying them as they didn't want to take credit card for international orders. Fedex handled all the importation documentation.

    Re: Tyres

    percymon...220 a tyre for the rears with 19" sounds very good. Thats the typical price for the fronts in my experience.
