In the market for some new winter tyres (3PMS) 225/55/18 102 load rating and the ones fitted at the moment are marked XL.

Just wondering if anyone can tell me if XL tyres were fitted from manufacturer as there is nothing in the handbook to suggest this.

Not having XL tyres would open up much more choice but obviously if they are the ones that need to be on the car then that's what I'll get.

Before there's any debate; I definitely want proper winter tyres due to where I live.

Original tyres were 98H so not XL.

Thanks that's interesting, thought they were 102 load. Even more options to choose from then. :thumbs:

The XL designation is where the 102 load index comes from.

This is what I have on my Facelift 2011 Tekna - they've been excellent in all weathers and wear really well. Got from Camskill

Thanks for that; don't seem to have those now but Vredestein certainly worth looking at

Oh - that's interesting.

I only bought them beginning of the year so how odd.

Looks like they do still make them but hard to obtain - seems like Quatrac Pro taken over but they are higher load rating so perhaps firmer ride at 102V instead of 98.

You could try these as they seem to get good reviews and not too costly - guy from Scotland gives them good review.
