on mytyres.co.uk there are 195/45/15 toyo proxes tr1 tyres for £43 a piece, and the same tyre in 195/50/15 are £32, im liking the idea more of the 45's as i think they will look better on the car, especially when it is slammed, but for £11 a piece more is there much point?
just to check that the pic on the site isnt wrong, they are the 'v' tread tyres aren't they?

is this me being tight about the money or should i just spend less?!

for me its between the toyos and eagle f1's, but is it worth spending the extra money for a lower profile?
part of me thinks it is because it will look better, but then i think its a tiny difference for a 5mm lower profile

Its not 5mm is 5% of the width less so 195/50 are 97.5mm high the 195/45 are 87.75mm high.
