    Default pads n tyres

    I need some front brake pads, what sort of standard pads are avaiable for my 405 mi16. and who would sell them to me for what price...

    Also about to put some new tyres on the car but using 195/60/15 instead of 195/55/15 as i can save many bucks and have longer lasting tyres. Any idea how much this will change my speedo?

    Cheers

    Nathan,

    You can use this to calculate the diff in the tyre and if you go to the Homepage, it should give you an index of other calculations possible.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    i have 195/60 15's on my Mi16 (i had a set of FM901's in this size) and it hasnt made a differnce that i can tell, i went from 205/50 15's ,so i would have thought that there would been a difference, i have driven past a few cops with the 60's on and none them have stopped me (yet )

    i need pads also, does anyone know of a good 'sport' brand?

    cheers

    Again I can only refer to Citroen, but with them I have bought Bendix pads from Repco for about $80/$90 so I would expect that if Cit parts are so easy, Pugs should be a breeze.
    An important thing to remember with the Cit brake pads is that if you use anything but Bendix in the front, they seem to want to rattle their guts out and become quite annoying as well as being almost impossible to find the rattle. I mention that because I have heard that Peugeots can have similar problems. I don't know if they take the same pads though.

    Sorry, I should have been clearer; no, that's just front.
    Rears I think were around another $65/$70, but given the type of drving most of us do, a set of rears will last donkeys ages.
