Hi, how's the Michelin XM2 holding up? Are they silent and comfy? Have heard that since these are soft compounds, they wear out fast and prone to punctures. Thanks
I had changed to Michelin while the car was nearing 50000 kms on the odometer, now it has reached almost 73000 Kms. I would say I am quite happy with my decision. I haven't had any punctures so far. They are still silent compared to the goodyear ones I had before. There is not much of noticeable treadwear till now.
The following BHPian Thanks Night Raven for this useful post:
I have a 2013 Grande Punto 1.2, now at 49k KMs. The variant is Dynamic and it came with 14" steel rims. I have been thinking about upsizing to alloys that were available in the Emotion variant (15"). Now my question is, will the performance of the car be affected? The 1.2 is already a slow car and I'm worried that upsizing will make it even slower. Also, will the ground clearance increase? The car already has a truck-like GC of 195mm. Please suggest.
I have a Punto Abarth 2015 make which runs on 195/55/16. I am looking to upsize my ride to 205 profile. Which one is the right upsize, 205/55/16 or 205/50/16?
Did you upgrade your tyres on the Abarth Punto?
I have the same car which I purchased in 2018 currently running 195/55 R16s and have completed 30000 kms on it. The tyres are still fine but looking for some additional grip and hence wondering if the 205 profile is suitable?
