Tyre sizes

Postby ianhoughton » June 27th, 2007, 6:39 am

I've just bought a 1999 Swift Challenger 520SE. It needs 2 new tyres but the handbook calls for 175R13 and it has got 165R13 currently. Even the spare is 165R13. Do I go with the handbook or keep the same size.

Go with the size given in the handbook. It's also important to get the right load rating for the new tyres. If I'm right your van has an MTPLM of around 1300kgs. This means that the original tyres would have had a load rating of something like 99 (775kg each). The full tyre spec should be in the handbook or service booklet. Failing that your local tyre dealer should be able to advise.
