Wheels and tyres

Post by JamesGB » Wed Nov 04, 2020 4:29 pm

Hi,

I’m interested to know what everyone is using in the way of rims and tyres?

As well as voting in the poll, please comment with the make, model, and size of tyre.

My vehicle came with 18 inch wheels with Goodyear EfficientGrip SUV 225/45R18 GDYR EGRP PERF 95W XL

Many thanks.

Not sure how to vote in the poll.

My 2017 “2” is on 16” wheels and 205/60/16 tyres.

Was on the original Michelin on the front for about 28k miles I think, then Continentals.

They lasted less mileage, albeit that on the Michelins I did a few longer motorway trips (Turin and back, for example!) whereas the average use of the Conti’s was probably more stop / start.

Anyway, the Contis were due for changing after about 23k - even by Lex auto lease standards - so as of today it is on Hankooks on the front and still the Michelin energy savers on the rear.

I rate the Michelin’s for life and economy, albeit I found the wet grip on the front wasn’t brilliant. Still couldn’t persuade Lex to fit Michelin Crossclimates though :-(
