Tires for 16 inch rims

  • Hello,


    have you been looking for tires lately?

    Currently, on the pages of Bridgestone, Continental, Pirelli, Michelin and even Hankook no tires are listed with the size 225/45 R16 more and also an offer at the shippers and in the bay there is currently no. Even the Hankook, which I had before and which was at least quite acceptable, there is apparently no longer! :hilferuf:


    Currently have the P-Zero and the rear axle is due soon, front axle probably still holds a set of rear wheels through. I can only find Nexen, Nankang, Toyo and Yokohama in the dimension at the moment.

    Do you have "available" recommendations for "mixed tires" or general conversion?


    Greetings

    Rolf

  • Hello Rolf,

    based on the recommendation of Lars Ruf CTR I ordered a set of Kumho HS 51 for the SC Targa.

    Front 205 55 16, rear 225 50 16


    Driving impressions I have not yet.


    Greetings Stefan


    Note: the rear size was wrong and has been corrected.

  • There are still Hankook tires in the size apparently still to get. But not exactly cheap at the time. The were always so around 80 €. But in general it is with the tire combination 225/45/16 very Mau. I bauche also just this size for my Impreza Turbo but very weak what is still offered there in good everyday summer tires. X/

  • I had also wondered honestly! I have the 225/50 rear on it so actually should also on it. §-)

  • 225/45R16 I would also like to have on it -- is like plate / bevel gear 8:32 instead of 8:31 ....


    But then I would have 205/50R16 on the front.

  • now do not scare me - where does the specification 225/45-16 come from?

    225/45 R16

    And the size has TÜV?

    Hello Lars,
    no - but I have realized my mistake. However it came about, I ordered the wrong size and had it mounted.

    Since the SC-Targa has no registration yet it is not too tragic - just a pity for the money.


    I have asked a moderator to change my post!


    Thanks and greetings Stefan

  • If TÜV would come on it -- then they would stay on it.....

  • Moin Stefan,


    I had bought mine in the back with 255-50-16 on 7" from the USA via detours DK and BRD, but my TÜV buddy said no. He drove very well on red number. After the conversion to 7" and 8" I mounted the 245-45-16 in the rear and had it registered that way. But by the higher offset to the front, wider track or or he ran every rut after, so since the original 225-50-16 with 7mm track plates up and good is.
