Thread: Tyre time...

  1. #1

    Default Tyre time...

    Need some new tyres in the next month or so.
    I have the Prime Sport with 16 wheels.

    Are there any other options than the oem Continentals?
    Seems most other brands either the front size OR the rear, but not both.

    Also, anyone found any all weather tyres?
    Winter I can find.

    Can only speak from my experience, and this was because I went through a pothole. On older smarts (pre-453) front and back are slightly different specifications (don't have the specs at hand). I believe this is still the case with the 453, so I had to replace both front tyres. Also the Prime 16" over here. I didn't get Conti's. They had some other make available though. Will check and get back for you.

    These are all season tyres. They have rim protection which makes the sidewalls stiffer and therefore you get a harder ride.

    195/55R15 rear tyres and 185/60R15 front tyres will fit on standard 15" rims. You have a much greater choice of matching tyres and get a better ride.
