I'd say that you should use the tyres that the wheels were specified with, i.e. 145s. The slightly wider tread will mean the edges of the tread are very slightly pulled up towards the rim. Not much, I grant you, but still...What really is the difference in 145 155, given the car was specified to run on 145 is that the better option? I do find the 155's I have seem very spongy and a not very grippy on corners, I guess I should play with pressures on these before I change to see if I can get a better ride
erm - you mean 4.20 crossplys?I'd say that you should use the tyres that the wheels were specified with, i.e. 145s
What Paul is trying to say is that he's not prepared to try and keep up with the twit in the 1275 four door exploring 4 wheel drift on roundabouts - and quite right too .far more grip than I'm prepared to try my luck with.
I have heard a few owners say that and sometimes depending on the make you can see the extra middle age spread on the rims.I do find the 155's I have seem very spongy and a not very grippy on corners,
I'm afraid I canBut you can't argue that a wider tyre won't provide better grip and stability, even counting the extra movement/flex in the sidewalls.
