He made the front tyres harder with the higher pressure so the sidewalls wont collapse as much during cornering - less roll Jules

I don’t know if anyone has put a extra load rated tyres on, but that might help to even out the excessive wear on the F/N/S outer edge problem as an extra load tyre has a far stiffer carcass.

The factory fitted Conti Cross Contacts that mine came with were XL 108V rated. Presumably extra load? MY13 HSE Lux.......faultless since new.

My understanding is exactly that, the standard tyres are XL rated because of the job they could be called upon to do, rather than just the school run Wink Regards
