Seicento Tyre Size

My 1.1 Sporting is 165/55/13. Tomorrow i have an MOT and the front two are borderline. I am a tad rooked for cash just now and if i fail on tyres i know of a 900 with steel wheels been scrapped. Would they be the same size? I know i could have two different on the same axle but same size would be a bonus.

Cheers

Re: Seicento Tyre Size

An 899 is likely to have 145/70R13 or 155/65R13.

Re: Seicento Tyre Size

Re: Seicento Tyre Size

OK going tyre hunting this week. I grudge 48 quid each from a local garage so looking around. Stuck my reg in the kwikfit site and all they say is my car is 145/70T13. Will this be right for my standard sporting alloys?

Re: Seicento Tyre Size

Standard sporting size is 165/55 r13 so 145s would probs be a bit small. Camskill.com are usually the cheapest place to get tyres although you then have to get them fitted, still normally works out a bit cheaper though.

Edit: Just checked and the cheapest 165s are 30 each so total for 2 with shipping is 68 plus probs around 5 each for fitting so you'd be looking at about 80 all in, 90 tops which is a fair saving.

Re: Seicento Tyre Size

I found a seller who was advertising at 29 each. I ask a question about brand so i can look into them more and he hikes the price to 37. What is that all about? If he bothers to answer my e mail he will be getting abuse.

Re: Seicento Tyre Size

There's not a lot of choice in that size, and I'd suspect he's got Nankangs - https://www.camskill.co.uk/m73b0s376...5_13_165_55R13

The latest Nankangs aren't as 'hedgefinder' as the early ones.

Indeed, I think my 13's have some XR611s fitted on them and they're quite nice.

Might lose out on the fuel down and back

Ended up getting the Nankangs. 187 quid fitted through Black Circles. Im still greetin. They also had a B ratting for wet grip what was good as next was Black Circles own brand and they were C ratting for the budget and premium.

Re: Seicento Tyre Size

Don't put too much thought into the tyre rating they are self certified/graded so a manufacturer can stick can letter onto the tyre's

So a f on one tyre could be better then a b from andifferent company
