New tyres
21 February 2004 by Kerry
striker The ACB10s that were on the car when I bought it were just about down to the legal tread limit (and barely have any tread at the best of times), so they needed to be replaced. I now have Yokohama A048s (185/60R13 on the front and 205/60R13 on the back), which should be nearly as good in the dry, and a lot better in the wet.

The only downside is that they each weigh two or three kilogrammes more, which might not sound much, but actually adds about 2.5% to the weight of the car! Still, it'll be nice to be able to drive on damp roads without getting wheelspin when I accelerate at just about any speed. I'll just have to lose a bit of weight off the driver to offset it!
