    Ha ha ok, I see that now,I was clicking the picture button on the top

    Well here are my Honda HFP 19" wheels, they have a combination of Dunlop and vrederstein winter tyres on at the moment.

    Why the bigger brakes just due to more wheel weight or something?

    I need new tyres, does it matter what size I go for? As in either 225 or 235?

    Call me sad but I love getting a new set of tyres! The car feels so much better on new rubber.

    I went for Nexen SU1's mainly down to what was available at my price point and that I had heard of!

    I'm well happy with them, they are quiet, comfortable and feel quite grippy (I haven't pushed them to much as yet) DSC_0101.JPG

    I went for 225 35 19 to get a little bit of a stretch as I think it looks that bit more sporty, and I think it has changed how the car looks (for the better) compared to when it had its 235 35 19 winter tyres on, which I will be selling as I don't have the space to keep them.

    I paid £284 for 4 fully fitted,balanced and filled with nitrogen which I now realise was a bargain as I've since looked online to buy these same tyres and I can't buy them for less than £300! Then I would need them fitting at £15 a rim.

    So all in all I'm chuffed with the CL9 as she stands now, just got my camber arms to fit, when they arrive and get a 4 wheel alignment done.
