    Tyre load rating

    What load ratings are people using on their S197 tyres, 101 XL sidewalls too stiff maybe?
    Cheers.

      My current 18ís have 100Y. My previous MPSS were 101Y and before I have had 101XL Dunlopís.

      Maybe that is why I have always found my car to be a harsh ride? Although the lowering springs are probably more to blame

        Just had a look at mine and they are 97. Will check out the date code to see if they could be original to the wheels. Guess I should mention the wheels are not from an 05 car.

          Are they run flats? You have Goodyear Eagle F1's don't you, what spec/model are they?

            None of them were/are run flats. My current are the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2.

            Fronts are 245/50/18 100Y
            Rears are 275/45/18 103Y

            The back does feel harder but that could just be the axle or different suspension designs.

              Are you sure? Taken from Goodyear website for your tyre type. I was looking at Asymmetric 5 but they are also listed as reinforced (RunOnFlat) RunOnFlat

              Our revolutionary RunOnFlat technology lets you drive at up to 50mph on a flat tyre. So thereís no need for roadside tyre changes, and a reduced risk of motorway blowouts

                At the time of buying the Asymmetric 3ís were newer and a little more expensive so I settled for the 2ís. I didnít even know they went up to 5!

                (when I said ďnone of themĒ I was referring to all the tyres I have bought in the past and not the Eagle F1 range)

                  I remember the time when buying things was a lot more straight forward.
                  Reinforced tyres are not run flat but designed for prolonged use at heavier loads and higher pressure and having a stiffer than normal sidewall but are not run flats. Run flats also have a stiffer sidewall but are not classed as reinforced tyres.
                  Seems like not all sizes of the Asymmetric tyres are RunOnFlats also, should have EMT on the sidewall of Goodyear if its a run flat.

                      I recently had Asymmetric 5 fitted.
                      They definitely aren't run flat.
                      They may also be available but would have ROF at the end of the size instead of XL

                      Interesting fact, they went from 3 to 5 missing out 4 as its unlucky in China.(can't find where I saw that now, but its close to a word that means Death, not suitable for a tyre name..)

                              Had a new set of Goodyear F1 asym 5 fitted today, bit annoying when you have loads of tread left on the old tyres, hope it makes a difference!
                              Got a good deal at Kwik Fit (fitted) which was less than I could buy just the tyres from elsewhere like Camskill etc. The car attracted quite a lot of attention from the all the staff and had a good chat with them, had to treat them to a bit of a burnout when I left , should have done it on the old tyres!
                              Free wheel alignment as well, which was spot on.
