Im thinking of getting some Eagle F1 Super tyres for my 18" wheels, has anyone any experience of these, also they appear to have a low load of 88, what does this effect?

p.s. my pzero neros lasted 10k is that good/bad or about right?

Don't know whether the lighter engine makes any difference but on the 2.4 you need the XL load rating - this narrows it down to Bridgestone RE050, Pirelli PZero & some Vredesteins but specifically not Goodyear F1's. Loads of threads on here about it of you have a look.

No, I guess each tyre could only hold 560kg.. Not all tyres are taking the same weight, hence different tyre pressures front and rear. But I think you'd be safe, there's not 1160kg over the front axle in a 159 1.8..

And the tyre weight limit is measured at the tyre's maximum speed limit..
