Hello and welcome you are limited to a few brands on the 18" but a few more on the 17" it depends on what you have.

!7" are good on Michelin and Perrelli Quikfit did me the best price. The rears do not as long as the fronts on these cars

Then you have the same size as me,,the same wheels as me.

What did I do , it would seem that mention the word AMG and the price is double,, so on my rears I went down from the 285 width to 275 and went up one on the profile, and did the same thing on the front. OK my Ø has increased so that the speedo reads spot on, the bigger profile gives a better ride, and far less risk of wheel damage and £100 cheaper to buy each
