Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Installed the Cooper LTZ 285/50/20 today.
They are slightly noisy, with a low hum when cruising, but after 15mins or so, I wasn't noticing it.

Hi Allypally

looking good. When I was forced to change my tyres the.tyre shop talked me out of those. Said they would rub.

No doubt so he could sell me what he had available instead. Any rubbing at park height

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Did nothing with the spare.
Have now travelled over 1000 k on the Coopers.
Ride is smooth
Noise is evident, but not overwhelming
Issues, car appears to jump about on irregular road surfaces, but once used to it, not a real problem.

Thnks for that. I think that I will be replacing the kumhos on mine in a month or so with the same as the kumhos are just about gone.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

My factory khumos just clicked 40,000km yesterday. Still plenty of thread left, like at least 60%. All road use.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

I just got a set of Good Year Eagle GTII 285/50/20R.

They look great with the extra width, but i have noticed a little less traction in the wet compared to the stock.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Nah, no rubbing at all.

Haha, it rained. I only just got it polished on the weekend.
