    Default Tyres

    Marky2027 have been wondering about changing our 215 tyres to 225/45 /17
    Mark asked me if there is a noticable difference in the ride?? I understand that there are a lot of members with SRI,s or uprated spring. But would I notice any "rougher ride" in my Elite with standard springs.

    I went from 215/50 to 225/45 when I had 17s - both when I had the Irmscher suspension fitted. I noticed ever such a slight, and I mean ever such a slight, firmness in the ride - nothing that ever bothered me.

    On your standard Elite suspension Ed I doubt if you would feel any difference at all.

    I'll find out tomorrow as I'm having two Goodyear Excellence's fitted (they are going on the back as per good practice).

    The Excellences are the replacement for the NCT5's I'm told.

    when I had the 17's on they were F1 205/50 and I went to Contact 2 225/45. Mine has the sports suspension on the elite as part of the plus pack and the ride was definatley firmer and smoother but am now back on my 18's with Bridgstones
