    Sigh!

    An remarked earlier, I'd ignore this stuff & point out to any fussing member of officialdom that the (91) tyres have a load rating that exceeds by far the load placed upon them. I'd choose...

    If that sledge is aimed at me then it bewilders me and some explanation is in order.

    Hmm, if your door placard says 205/60 & 91 then that will be the operative legal guideline I suggest & 195/65 = 205/60 on load. I really can't imagine you getting belted on this one. The whole thing...

    You might want to consider an Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) battery. Basically it is a lead/acid battery but without a liquid electrolyte. I fitted one (brand: "Full River") in my 4CVG which, as modified,...

    On gearing:

    Each of my 4 toys has shorter gearing than it was born with owing to tyre choice.

    For two of them (R8 & 4CVG) this doesn't affect speedo reading as the instrument packs have also...

    Hmm! as you are alert to, I think that 205/60 is to be avoided because of paucity of good tyre types.

    Within 205/65, I think that you have a good shortlist. (The K415 Hankook is not a bad tyre &...

    It'd help to know what your priorities are as some tyre qualities conflict with others.

    Thanks. I asked because I wondered if you would find it beneficial to have smaller rears on handling balance grounds & then tyre pressure fine tune the handling balance.

    To CC1701:

    Contis are a range, not a tyre; types within that range vary widely in characteristics.

    Sadly, the PS4 doesn't come in 195/65-15.

    What I like in the wet with either Pirelli is that the limit behaviour is benign. They tell you what they're about to do, then don't do it snappily &...

    195/65-15 is a useful size for a range of cars which came originally with a narrower & higher profile tyre.

    Others might be interested in my choices. For me, wet grip under braking & laterally is...

    I still have little idea of what you want in a tyre but anything in a 195/65-15 will have either a 91 or 95 load rating. The latter is higher rated & a common way of achieving that is to have two...
