    For my sprinter conversion I need a pair of tyres as 1 of the rears has bulged on the tread area(the footprint so to speak) loads of tread left and rest of tyre looks great. Anyhow I don't know age or complete history so I'm going to change the rears this month and fronts next. I believe I need 225/70-15 extra load tyres can anyone reccomend somthing ? I want a decent tyre at a nice price any help advice be gratefully welcome. I don't mind using mail order as I can get them fitted for a pint or two

    You need 225 70 R15C 110/112 (the latter two figures being the load index) They are 8-ply tyres.

    Loads of brands in this size:Merc often fitted Continental Vanco2 as OEM but they are premium. Others to consider are: Hankook, Michelin, Goodyear.

    Have a look here for ideas:

    This comes up a lot but at this time of year many people are not posting, the answer is at the top of the page, use the search facility.
