Re: Winter Tyres
Think Marlon means the Super's ride hight is 15mm higher, rather than the sidewall of the tyre being 15mm higher... a 195 60 15 has a bigger rolling radius than a 205 50 15
Are you looking to fit a snow tyre Colm? if so, go for the skinniest that will fit your rim. a narrower tyre gives much better grip in snow as it doesn't spread the weight of the car as much. I used to live in Aberdeenshire and I can confirm that the 155 is a truly appalling car in snow. (I had 225/40/ZR16's). I was on the point of going to the scrappy and buying a couple of little skinny rims with the right pcd and fitting some vredestein snow tyres..moved to Kent now though so winter grip aint so much of a problem- the roads stay black down here! Was thinking of a 155/165 width on a 14 diameter wheel.
