Change them first then as it's REALLY common for those to fail and much, much less likely for a shock to have gone.

was that £9.50 or £950 - if the former a keen price if the latter not good. Tyres are fine lots of different options are fitted to the Galaxy.

The size isn't that important, its the load index and reinforced criteria that are.

If it fits the rim and clears all the suspension then yes but they must have a load index of at least 95 and be reinforced/extra-load.
