Good old Citroen seem to have a thing about using tyre sizes that are not the most common sizes and subsequently cost silly money.
It's supply and demand.
Or is it just quirky?

Got the two front Goodyears replaced by the ZV7 Avon`s...very early days but initaially seem to provide a smoother ride, especially over bad road surfaces than their predecessors. Off on a long trip to France to I`ll update after that.

Got Michelin energy saver + 205/55/16 V all round on Urbert. Hardly any wear with 11,700 miles. The Goodyear tyres on the diesel were quite worn with only 16,000 miles so will need replacing soon.

I was very annoyed my Cactus came with Goodyears. I deliberately went for the Feel because of the Michelins being inextricable with CitroΓ«n. The fronts needed replacing at 14,000 :shock: and although the rears had 3/4 mm I got the full set of energy savers. They're so much quieter :D

Yes, Michelin Energy Saver (in my case 195/65-15) is fine. Now the car has driven 78000 km (48500 miles) and they are not completely worn yet. However, 5 months a year I drive with winter tires.

Now down in the middle of rural France so the new ZV7's have got well bedded in. So far much quieter and smoother than the Goodyears.. hopefully they will wear better than their predecessors who were finished before 18,000 miles😧....by the way car was excellent and very comfortable on a very long tripπŸ˜€

Quieter and smoother sounds good. How did they compare for price? Ive been quoted Β£108 each for Goodyears.

What's the view on the original 89 load rating versus 93?
The 93 appear to be a more common tyre but are 'Extra Load' - will often show XL on sidewall
Mrs cactus has some cheapo Chinese City Racing rated 93W on the front now, I'm sort of wanting to get rid of the 'cheap crap' but to be fair they seem to grip pretty well....I guess a combo of 205 tyres and a light car.....
