Whilst staring lovingly at my car earlier i noticed that the front tyre is larger than the rear 1 although they are all 14" steelies

and on the opposite side the rear one is larger than the front one >:-(

Does this need to be sorted asap, need to find my jack!


Soz i know this is tyres/susp[ension but i cant be arsed to move it now!

ok are they directional tyres ? it will say on the side wall

really the front tyres must match or it will pull on side and think its cornering
put the '65' tyre of the rear on to the front

right put the 65s on the rear and the 80s on the front
then swap the 80s for 65s when you get your tyres changed in the future

btw the 80s are taller. the ones specified for your car are 65 height.

t rating is 113mph max. h is 118. v is 149mph.

to wear it out faster so when you get new ones that are the right size you've got the most wear out of them. you could put them on the back. as long as you have the same size on the same axle you will be okay.

use this to calculate the difference
