Hi, need to get 2 new tyres. Was wondering if they need to be "XL" or not? At the moment 2 are XL.

Many thanks

XL stands for eXtra Load which means the side walls of the tyres are reinforced to support more weight for the likes of vans ect. I assume you drive a focus from your Dp and I think your car doesn't really need xl tyres on but check with you local tyre shop just to be on the safe side
