tyre sizes and replacement


Hi guys, just came back from a trip around Australia. Did it on Dunlops grand trek st 20 - 225/60 R17, which came with the car. Did the job very well, no punctures in 16000kms, but now I would like quieter and longer lasting tyre. Done about 42000 kms on them, few thousand on dirt roads. Its time to replace them and I was wondering what size tire can I fit on my existing rim. Or is it only the existing size 225/60R17 that I can use? Few times I was interested in a tire, but it was not available in 225/60 r17. Can you recommend a tyre which lasts a bit longer and is quiter than Dunlops grand trek? Thank you for your help, regards Danny

Hi Danny,

Not sure about different sizes, but Cooper CS5s claim to have more tread depth and therefore last longer. Some Pirellis are similar.

I have just (about a month ago) put a set of Pirelli Scorpion Verde 'All Seasons' on my wife's car and they are a VERY quiet tyre. She doesn't go offroad at all.

I'm putting Cooper CS5s on mine at the end of the week so I can do light offroading. Both are 225/60 R17

Cheers,
Mark
