I hope this isn't reposting, as I did a search and couldn't find any great details.
My 1986 9000T16 is in need of tyres soon.
There is a sticker on the sunvisor that states 195/60x15 tyres for the car.
The Haynes manual specs give the 195/65 as the smallest tyre fitted.
I phoned my normal tyre supplier and was told that my car should have 185/65x15 tyres.
ARGHHHHHHHHH
Does anyone know the correct sizing?
I think the speedo is reading a little high too, if that menas anything.
The tyre shop wanted to know what was on the ADR(australian design rules) recommended info. It has been removed, but I wouldn't hold faith in that, as ADR is only set by a government department, and our Design rules down here suck. They are too strict.
Thanks in advance.
Chris

I used to run 205/60 R15 Yokohama A539's, then changed to the same sized C-Dirve Yokohama's.. when i bought the car, it had 205/55 on it, but because my speedo was out (10% with correct size tyre) i went to larger to try and get less error. so 205/55 or 205/60 i found were great.. the added width over 195/65 was noticable!!!
