Hi guys.

I've noticed that 225/45/17 tyres are way cheaper than 205/55/17 (which is currently fitted to my alloys (7.00j x 17 et5)). Minimum width = 195mm, maximum = 255mm.

There will be a slight reduction in speedo reading (about 2mph), which doesn't really bother me.

I'm wanting to know has anyone increased the width of they're tyres on standard alloys and what tyre did you go for? Much different in steering and road noise?

I had crossclimate plus on my qashqai and they were pretty handy in the winter/snow. But, not sure if I'd go for them again.

Never heard of them. But properly intrigued...

I've not done anything with my new tyre purchase. The crossclimate 2 has just been released and toying with the idea of buying 2 this month and 2 in a couple of months time.

But, someone is selling 4 x continental premium contact 6 at 6.5mm tread and are slightly wider and lower profile (215/55).

Leaning towards all season cc2 as winter is round the corner and these tyres are pretty good. Stick with what I know I suppose.

I'm not sure is a good plan to but Crossclimates in twos. It would be much better to buy 4 at the same time to avoid large differences in grip.

Normally I would be quite wary of having different tyres on the front and rear. But I tried it out on the Qashqai I had, and it made a positive difference to the driving.
At the moment, my rear tyres are much better than the fronts. The front tyres are the super cheap Arnold Clark budget tyres which I will be changing regardless of wear.
