What 14" tyres are you running?

Postby Gary. » 03 Jun 2018, 19:18

Just got back from an epic trek in the heat, windows down and a fair bit of motorway driving. The rather agqressive INSA Turbo Dakar's have a serious hum, plus being a 195/80 are a tad on the small size for long haul trips. These tyres are great in the mud and snow, but looks like they might wear quite fast in the summer on the long hauls.

Therefore I have decided to boot up another set of 14" rims for summer driving and was wondering what other tyres you guys are running on a 14" rim? There seems to be a few choices with 205/80/14.

They would need to be available as a current tyre. I'd appreciate any feedback, cheers.

Conti Vanco 2 215R14 here. Love 'em !

Kumho, Toyo and Marshall also do a commercial road tyre in the above size, all would be fine I'm sure.

Great, thanks. Slightly bigger than I hoped, perfect. Do you have pictures?
