Hi, I'm a new member to the site and I own a 2004 VW Passat Estate 1.9 TDi which I love.
I have summer tyres on at the moment which are 205/60/15 with an offset of ET39.
I have just bought some good winter tyres on steel wheels which came off a 1998 Transporter T4. These are 205/65/15 with an...
Since I bought this car about 4 years back, with 103,000 on the clock, I have covered maybe another 63000, I have had a tyre issue on the rear which has plagued me. Once I dumped the Dunlop tyre, with 4mm centre tread left, but balding inside tread, and replaced with Goodyear efficient grip...
Going to be purchasing some winter tyres for my 2003 B5.5 FWD Wagon V6. Currently on the car are, what I am assuming is OEM, 205/55/16's.
1. What would be the narrowest tyre I could fit to these rims?
2. Is 16" the smallest I could fit to the car?
In an ideal world I'd keep the rims...
Time to change tyres. Was thinking. Of putting a 50 profile on instead of 45 With the aim of maybe a bit more comfort and less tyre noise.
I was told. That there would be a difference Is this true ? What about ride height I don't need it looking like a 4+4. :lol:
Have scoured the forums with the search tool and replied to a thread in the wheel and tyre forum, but suspect that might be the wrong place!
My 4Motion is wearing the outer edge of the rear tyres quite considerably in comparison to the rest of the tyre area (maybe a 1/4 of the tread surface). I...
We bought our VW Passat Highline Estate 2010 in Oct 2011. There were two diff makes of tyres on them.
Mileage when bought was 41000. Saw-tooth effect noted and VW said that's normal.
We changed 4 tyres in Dec when mileage showed 49000. Yes, the sound from tyres had improved but....
I am new to this forum.
I have just recently purchased a B6 2006 and am getting a thumping noise from my rear tyre (driver side). My mechanic worked out that the tyre is not completely round so as it goes over the uneven part I get this slight thumpwhich resonates into the cabin.
I have 1 set of Hella TPMS for sale. It's brand new, still contained inside original packing. I bought it and then changed mind. It has never been installed.
Please however be noted that the plastic mounting bracket for the display unit is lost. A 12V power plug is included as a free gift from...
Uneven tyre wear? Update: now rear ended!
Had to replace both front tyres due to wear on the inner edges/shoulders. The rest of the tread was fine.
The car drives straight & handles well.
I have done a little searching, it seems when you are lowered, this wear is normal with no way of...
The alloy is is 19 x 8 et 35.
2 tyres choice: 235/35/19 falken 452 or 225/35/19 falken 452.
The car will be dropped on coilovers but not totally slammed probably a finger gap between tyre and arch or possible a tiny bit more. Dont want any RUBBING.
Total Noob here !
Tried searching the forums first but unable to find the answer.
Just need to know what tyre pressue do I need, I've upgraded from stock 15" to 22545x17 tyres on 17" alloys.
Its a 1998 tdi passat.
Thanks in Advance
There is a question, which is somewhat bothering me. When I got my car (new) from dealership, all tyres had 43.5 psi (3bar) pressure. But this is clearly much more than indicated. Thing is, this car had 235x45x17 instead of 215x55x16 which is supposed to be the base model. Is such...
I need to buy new tyres soon, only two for now. I have (4) Kumho Solus @ 205/60/15 and I want to return to stock size, Kumho Solus 195/70/15. Is it safe to be using two diff sizes (I'd put the new ones on the front)?
Just wondering if changing from 225/45 R17 tyres to 225/50 R17s is a problem?
I've seen some dirt cheap wheels with virtually new tyres but they are 50 profile instead of 45... I know this will throw the speedo out just a little bit, but does it pose any other problems for my...
Always there is a place for a wonder. Always wanted to ask but kept forgetting this thing.
Guys whats the right word for wheel's rubber? T I R E OR T Y R E ?
Or it's just English and American variations?:confused: :)
