In Topic: S-Max Ride/comfort Tyre Advice

07 April 2014 - 08:34 PM

Hi just to update everyone, that I have changed all 4 of my tyres from Michelin Premacy ( which came with my smax) to Goodyear efficient grip performance on advice from Member FOCA. Wow what a difference , the car is quieter and more importantly comfortable as well , lots less of the vertical movements I got from small bumps from the previous michellins. Motorway journeys are so calm due to this.
There was more steering feel and the handling was marginally better from the michellins but I am happy to compromise on these for lots more quieter/less tiring journeys

Thanks FOCA for the detailed reply,

Looking at Ford's official stats, the only tyre size recommended for the 17 inch wheels are 225/50, So I'm a bit nervous about trialling 215/55 on them, also not sure will be covered by insurance incase of any accident if used not the recommended tyre size. I am sure changing down to 16 inch wheels and using the 215/60 tyres would greatly improve ride, but just pondering the cost of getting a set of 4 16 inch wheels and new tyres.
I might try other makes which are a bit quiet and comfortable than the michellins first, when time comes to replace the current ones. Which model of Goodyear tyre did you mention which were a bit quieter and comfortable, thanks.

Hi Jeeb,

No I am not referring to the white lights which come on(footwell and overhead) when you open the doors, or the overhead LED lights.
The ambient light feature should be LED strip lights which glows softer in the night in front footwells ,door pockets and cup holders when the vehicle is moving. In newer models like CMAX and BMAX you can even select different colour colour themes for these

Hello, any other smax owners out there who knows any answers, I have been to the local ford dealers today, whom didn't know a clue about the ambient lighting feature and to be honest quite unhelpful. Have spoken to Ford technical support line who basically toldme if it was not in a menu to activate it then the vehicle didn't have it. But clearly in their specification in the brochures and their website states courtesy lights > foot well and ambient lighting in addition to over head led's are standard in SMax titanium and titanium x sports
