Just a quick update. I decided to get the correct size fronts fitted today. I got a pair of 225/40/18 fitted and the 20mm reduction in both tyre width and diameter have restored the handling back to normal. Really pleased with the results. I Decided on a budget tyre for only £63 each (only do 2000 miles a year as a weekend toy) and had a puncture repaired at the same time. Bonus was that the guy in the garage forgot to charge for the tyres themselves and I only paid £36 in total!!!!
I've got the 245/40/18 Pzero Rosso tyre on Ebay and hopefully make £50 for the pair.
Shouldn't one go back and tell the gentleman that he forgot to charge you for the tyres?
