If you're changing all four tyres you could change to 195/65/R15 which are in limit. Looking at Kwik fit for Michelin energy+ they are £83 for your original size but £58 at this new size.

I had 215/50/17 on my car and replacements were £149 each. I changed all four to the more popular size of 225/45/17 and they came down to £83 each for Goodyear f1's so better tyres at nearly half the price.

Have a look at what tyre sizes Octavia had the year of your car with the same R15 size as a guidance. Then google tyre size calculation, making sure it's .co.uk and put in your tyre size.

what about part worn tyres I use them as with newer tyres these days they don't last as they use to and u end up need replacing due to the side of the tyres splitting instead of the actual thread wearing down. I had to replace all 4 tyres which still had good treads due to this and u can pick up good branded ones like goodyear yokahoma etc. for around 17 to 20 quid.

​it's not that mate. I rarely hit the kerb if that was the case why doesn't it happen to used tyres. I find the overall time new tyres last about 3 to 4. years maximum tyres so if u drive low mileage they dont last long enough to wear out.tyres from about 15 to 20 years ago easily last longer than this.

Part Worns.... Do you know the history of the tyre?

Cheap no name brands.... Your car is connected to the road by a few square inches of rubber i.e. your tyres, is this really the part of the car you wanted to try and save money on? Stick with a known/trusted/reliable brand for the sake of an extra £10 a corner.

By the same thinking , everyone who buys a second hand car should change all 4 (or 5) tyres .. As you don't know the history .

​why do u think they are no name brands this way u get to choose what tyre u want and reject the cheap no name tyres. as sometimes when people go in for a new tyre the cheapest ones are around £24 for a brand new budet one and a good quality branded one maybe over £100. for the same tyre and people go for them. I wouldn't go for a new one anymore as they don't seem last more than 5 years. so pointless spending 100+ quid for a tyres vs 20 which has probably been used for 3 to 4 months. most used part worn come from other countries which have stricter rulings on tyre depths.or they swap.over winter summer tires and just get rid of them adter a season.rather go for part worn than a brand new corsa make or the latest ones what are they called aaa. and the newest make out know what is it delinite coming in at around 25 quid for a tyre brand new a rated yes seems good on paper.

I would definately agree on changing tyre size to 195 65 15. this will save money now and in future. national tyres have buy one get one free on barums at the mo. selected sizes so could be worth a look. budget wise. . . event and three-a are decent. can be had off ebay and pay local fitter £10 per wheel to fit and ballance.

maxxis are an excellent mid range tyre. bargain
#14
pointless buying them of ebay and then paying 10 quid a per tyre to a fitter just ask the local place get them for u they will be around 28 quid anyway. Unless u pick them up under 15 quid ech. how many miles have u got out of them for these tyres. most of these cheap brands don't last longer than 15000/20000 miles on the fronts for front wheel drive. and some as low as 10000 miles.

Valid point about changing all the tyres on a used car.

OP - consider park worms, but go to a reputable dealer that pressure tests the tyres. I've done it myself in the past with no issues.

I also just buy the cheapest tyres possible. People mention the fact that you shouldn't risk your only point of contact with the road by going cheap, BUT, in this day and age of health and safety, EU legislation stipulates a minimum quality on tyres. Any tyre you buy new will meet this. Don't be scared into buying the best brands possible and blowing a fortune. A lot of the budget tyre firm are actually owned by the big brands. Yeah, the expensive tyres might perform slightly better for slightly longer, but in my view don't justify the increased price and to be honest, unless you're fitting them to an F1 car, you won't really notice the difference anyway.

Here you go http://lovetyres.com/search/tyres/205-60-15 . I like the Uniroyal rainexperts (not rainsports). Unless you know exactly how to read information on the tyre sidewall and how to check them I would definitely avoid part worn tyres myself.

Yesterday I ordered a pair of Michelin Energy Saver + but 205/55R16 v91. £70.50 a corner fitted less 3.8% Quidco. So should be around £68 each. Always buy these... after having Toyo, Bridgestone and Dunlop I've never looked back.
