Tyre Size
155/70R13 Normal load Front 2.2 (32) Rear 1.8 (26) Full load Front 2.5 (37) Rear 2.5 (37)
165/65R13 Normal load Front 2.1 (31) Rear 1.8 (26) Full load Front 2.5 (37) Rear 2.5 (37)
165/60R14 Normal load Front 2.1 (31) Rear 1.8 (26) Full load Front 2.5 (37) Rear 2.5 (37)

That's according to the book I got with my StreetKa and gives the pressures for a standard Ka. I had to purchase the proper StreetKa User Guide from a dealer. The first pressure listed is in Bar, the second in parentheses is in PSI.

Hi, don't they usually say the size on them? mine do. Though they are the originals so perhaps that's why.

If not pop into a tyre place and I'm sure they would put you right? :D

You are quite correct. [b]All[/b] tyres should indeed display their diameter size (inches), width (mm), and profile (% of width).

They should also display the speed rating too, as well as the date of manufacture (little known fact there).
