    Hi

    I am looking for a good mid range tyre for the rear wheels on my c class. I was looking to get hankook as I have them on the front. But the back tyres are almost double the price I paid for the front.

    Back tyre Size is 255 / 35 / 18 / 90Y.

    Looking to spend around £60 if possible to get a decent tyre for that much? It's pretty much how much I got the front hankooks for.

    Thanks.

    Make sure you get the correct speed/ load rating whatever make you choose

    It's not a particularly common size, so it's more expensive and there's less choice.

    Have you had a look at what somewhere like BlackCircles throws out in that size?

    You don't say what C class you are driving so make sure your speed rating is correct.
    On my C class (C55 AMG) I have fitted new Avon ZZ5 (255/35ZR18 94Y) expect about £90 each incl vat.

    The work well for me and handle the power and torque pretty well ,plus they are made in England which helps to keep some Eastern European guy in Melksham Wiltshire happy ! (JOKE ,People :) )
