In the past, I have recommended Continental's PremiumContact2 tyres as the best available fitment for an R16 by reference to any criteria of appraisal one cares to nominate except longevity. The sizes I have mentioned are 175/70-14 (same circumference as 155/80) & 165/70 (same as 145/80).

I have just recommended them again in a thread (on Nankang tyres on the TS) in the technical forum.

I understand that some froggers have fitted the PC2 to R16s & it would be helpful if impressions of it were posted in that thread.


cheers! Peter
