Tyre Sizes, please explain!
Having previously gone no further than 'new tyres please' I'm trying to translate what different tyre sizes mean.
I believe, that for the 156 V6 with 16" Alloys I need 205/55/R16. Now I 've got the R16, and follow that Z Rated tyres are the highest speed rating, but waht does the rest mean?
Is there only one 'match' of tyre size to any one size of alloy or do the 205 and 55 bit allow you options, if so (depending on what they mean!) what are the pros and cons of playing?
The final stage, is that I often see Pirelli P6000's as a well regarded tyre, and mytyres.net price these at about £70 a corner. Does anyone have a more realistic idea of how much a set of these would actually cost fitted?
TIA, I'll work my head round these big rubber circular things eventually!
