    My mondeo has 235/50/17 tyres. Do you think I could get away with a different profile tyre - such as 235/45/17? The reason I ask is that the Michelin Primacy 3's are £140/corner (No Primacy 4 is available in that size). If I opt for a 45 profile instead of a 50 then I can get the Primacy 4...

    Ok, a little back story to begin with. I've had a few varied cars over the years, from a 1ltr Metro to a 500bhp Skyline with diesel shopping trolleys and tuned turbo's in between. And, they've had a variety of tyres on them from budget Ling Longs to high performance sticky stuff from...
  3. Mondeo Mk4 General Discussion
    Hi all, Don't know if this belongs in the Drivetrain forum or not, but have anyone had 20 inch wheels on their Mondeo? I've seen some around with 20x8,5 ET45 wheels, looks very nice IMO and I'll be willing to give up some comfort in order to fill the wheel arches more (which is the biggest...
  4. Focus Mk3 General Discussion
    I'm looking to replace my tyres soon due to stepping on the inner edge of the rears. Has anyone any experience of Avon's ZV7 tyres and whether they are prone to stepping?

  9. Drivetrain (Mk4 Mondeo)
    I do about 30,000 miles a year so I like my tyres to last. On my old mk3 I had 18s, which looked great but seemed to be prone to inner tyre wall damage - I think from the local speed bumps. The handling was good, but you felt every pothole ! I also went through front roll bar links at an...
  10. Mechanical (Focus Mk3)
    I replaced my original front tyres at 18k miles. The old ones might have some life in them but wet weather performance wasn't good, so I went for directionals. Immediate improvement in grip, but now 7k miles down, they have worn unevenly and are becoming very noisy. I doubt I'll get 18k out of...

    Hi guys, I went to a local tyre/wheel fitters yesterday. They put 4 part-worn Michelins on for me but on closer inspection today, three of the four are 91V - the same as the ones that came off it - and one is a 91H. Does anyone know what the Ford recommended minimum rating is? Rang my insurers...

    Just wanted to share an issue i have with the KU39's i have on the front on my 2.0 TDCI. I bought them 13 months ago and have done 13,000 miles or regukar motoring. I checked the wear last week and they are already down to 3mm. The 4 wheel alignment was done previous so there is no issue with...

  16. Drivetrain (Mk4 Mondeo)
    Hello, I've just had some Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymetric 2's fitted to the front right/left of my Mondeo 2.0 TDCi. I've noticed that the tyres seem to been fitted in opposite directions, although the tyre tread is actually very similar either way round, the pattern does look to be going in...
  17. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    Hi guys My front tyres on the zetec s TDCI seem to lose pressure quite quickly, is this normal for the TDCI due to the mass of the engine block? Also noticed that the passenger side loses more pressure than the drivers side. Checked for punctures and recently had both wheels straightened out...

    Sorry to be a pain and this has probably been answered before (but I have looked and cannot find anything) but my 18in tyres are wearing unevenly. Both fronts appear to be wearing more on the inside, I have 4mm of tread left in the middle and almost bald on the inside edges. Is this normal for...
