Hi I'm new to here so this has probably been asked before so apologies. I have purchased 2 new Eagle F1s and I then read somewhere that because these will fail an MOT because they are not the correct manufacturers size for the VX220. is this true? Should I try and get the MOT done with the current Bridgestones before I put the Eagle's on? Has anyone had issues around insurance coverage or MOTs if Eagles are fitted? Any advice will be appreciated. Cheers Mike

Do the tyres rub anywhere or catch on steering lock?

it would fail if the tyre fouled a part of the vehicle, signs of it rubbing are not enough for a fail

:D if the correct sizes have been purchased then they are the same diameter but very slightly wider.

Thanks for the replies guys, I did purchase the right size just waiting to get them fitted-will do so before MOT without worrying about a fail. Might have some second hand Bridgestones which I'm taking off the front. They have even wear would have to check the tread depth on them, are these actually worth selling? Are people interested in this type of item and if so how much? They are end of year 2000's. Cheers Mike
