Im guessing you went to option1garage from those prices, i get my tyres from there too
Yep that's where I went. I'll go back too, those Kumho's RRP a fair bit more than what I paid
I'll try and get some pics today and show you what they look like.. they should have been replaced sooner lol. The fronts however are still going great!
What Pressure do u guys reckon for 20's?
They wanted to put 32 in my rears but i went for 36
Be careful with the pressures in the Kumhos. Had mine at the recommended level and they've eaten themselves through the middle. I'm actually running the rears around 3 psi lower than recommended to compensate (wasn't caused by constant hard starts before anyone asks - car was rooted the whole time I had these tyres). The fronts are fine, but the backs are nearly done. I certainly wouldn't run them high.
yea i thought the recommended level was like 40?
what pressure do you reckon then?
considering 'normal' load on on the tyre placcard says 36 for 17's 18's and 19's, 20's would have to be at least that due to shorter sidewall and less pretection to rim.
i put 38 in my 20's for that reason alone. mind you, thats stone cold pressure reading.
yea lucky i asked what pressure they put in it lol got a shock when they said 32.
i usually run 38 in them. just thought twice about it. thats why im asking
trust in holden and their little sticker in the doorwell .
the VE is a large heavy car, and 32psi is no where near enough.
36 should do it?
They don't look to flat. otherwise i'll go to 38
I've got new tyres getting fitted tomorrow so I'll report back with their answer
Also, pics as promised. This is my rears after about 30K
And the fronts
As you can see the rears are shagged but the fronts still have a fair bit of meat on them.
i reckon 38, you'd like 36.... what about in the middle and try 37 .
lol they aren't shagged. Slick with some canvas is shagged!
I was recommended 38-40 for 35 and 30 profile 20's. Was read straight out of the Toyo handbook. The 30 profile was 38-42psi and the 35 profile was 36-40psi.
Well guys, after all my years of owning vehicles I have successfully worn through a set of tyres for the first time
It's taken 11,000kms and my rears need replacing again
Now the decision... whether to go Kumho's again or not
Are they wearing evenly? You doing burnouts?
wow.. 11,000 - not exceptional wear.
11,000 ? Far out u must drive like a mad man, I had Falken 452's 20" on my ute and got 50,000 out of them and i drive it hard (was a lease car) I did rotate them every 15,000
Seems the FK452s can't be beaten!
