In Topic: Wrong Tyres??

05 May 2014 - 08:16 PM

the tyres on the car don't match what they should be in the handbook. The tyres on the car are 175/65 R14 and in the book they should be 165/70 R13. Is this a problem or am I just being stupid? Also the tyres on the car are a mixture of 82T and 82H.

Should I be looking to replace all tyres with the same tyre type and getting the size that's in the handbook?



R14 means a 14 inch diameter and R13 means a 13 inch diameter (across the inner rim of the tyre) so it would appear that your car is on non-standard wheels.

It'll polish out.

In Topic: Avon Tyres Any Good ? Anybody Had Them?

02 February 2014 - 03:22 PM

Bit of a thread-from-the-dead, but I have tried Avon ZZ3 and Avon ZV5 on both Focus and Mondeo, and don't like either.  I find them a bit vague in terms of feel and they wear quickly too (I do most of my mileage on B-roads.)


After some experimenting, I found Uniroyal Rainsport 2s to be a good mid-price tyre for the Focus.  I haven't tried them on a Mondeo yet.
