  1. Hi Gareth...regarding your comment    "I moved from 205's to 165's, the difference was amazing, so light on the steering now."

    I currently have 195.65.15 tyres on my TR4, and find the steering heavy at low speed, parking etc.

    Would you care to comment further on change of tyres.

      Hi Malcolm,

      I would say that the original tyres were pretty old and quite hard. The camber angle was also fairly extreme.

      So I've put on new tyres that are considerably thinner and corrected the camber. That's corrected the slightly harsh and twitchy ride, but also given much lighter steering at slow speeds. 

      I also feel the car looks right now, something I didn't notice until I went back to the original size tyre.

      So for me it's been a good thing to change to 165's, and I would recommend doing so. 

      There is probably less choice for 165's than 195's, but if you don't care for a classic tread, there are some reasonably priced modern versions out there. 

      Ultimately its your choice and preference, but I'm happy to have changed to the 165's, it's suits the aesthetic look and comfort i want.
