  1. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Installing custom size tyres 215/65/R15 on 2012 Kia Soul +. What should be the tyre pressure? We don't want to use the door sticker pressure as its no longer original size. I found this the following link for calculating tyre pressure. The weight of 2012 Kia Soul is about 2800 lbs without...

    I recently cought a screw on a tyre. The tyre did not become completely flat, but definately lost pressure which was visible. I could still drive the ride though. But the flat tyre sensor showed nothing. Had anyone faced flat tyres? When does the sensor indicate - when the tyre is flat...

    Just wondered has anyone else has had the tyre pressure warning light stay on even thought the tyres are at the correct pressure? My car is a 2015 'Connect' Yep it's still under warranty but just wondered if this was something new... Thanks.............Ian

    One of the UK forum members (Taffy) has just replaced his front nexen 18" tyres at 10k with some very expensive Bridgestone Potenza RE040 225/45 18" and reported a major reduction in transmitted road noise.....he is very pleased. He will report his wear rate on the new tyres in the future.

    came across a new tyre size recently...... 225/50 18. So a ever so slightly deeper side wall than the recommended 225/45 18. So is it worth having the speedo run slightly out to have the slightly softer ride?..... or will the ride improvement be so marginal as to be unnoticeable?. Thoughts...

    These pics have been knocking about for a while now. Apparently the tyre is going into production soon in South Carolina. If its not a wind-up, does anybody know anything about them?.
  8. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    As part of my continuing quest to learn.... Totally ignoring tyre diameter, profile etc etc. If my wheels have a rim width of 7 inches........what is the optimum (not minimum or maximum) but optimum width of tyre that could be used on these rims......the rims equate to 175mm.....would the...

    It would seem that Unsprung weight is very important to ride and handling etc. And for most of us - the easiest way to improve that ratio is to buy lighter Tyres when we replace them. Is there a way of compiling a "weight of tyre only" list by size to point us in the right direction come swap time?.
