Just went to inflate tyres for holiday and realised the sticker is missing from the door pillar, guess it never got replaced when the car was repaired. No worries I thought, I'll look in the handbook, to be greeted with a diagram showing me where to find the poxy sticker. Feck.

So, can someone have a look for the correct pressure for a 225/45/17 on a T5, heavily laden and doing over 160kph (:D) please so that I can sort it out on the way home today.

Thanks muchly!!

Well those are at odds with what's shown on my sticker! I wouldn't trust that site for phase 2's. It only shows the V70 as 97 onwards, with no reference to tyre sizes. Unless I'm completely missing something...

Good point I`ve just checked it for the pressures on mine and they seem to be wrong as well. Best I find another one then. However they do seem to be about right for Hammy`s though !!!

I wonder why, the c70 and v70 are noticably different at the below 160 speeds when unloaded, for what is essentially the same tyre size!

At least for P1 cars, I'm fairly sure the weights of the two are pretty near each other.

Edit:

According to Parkers, C70 GT is 1453 kg and V70 varies between 1415 kg and 1528 kg depending on spec.

Don't let your age define you. It's a number, that's all.

Nasty D5 dieseasel with few twiddly bits from TWR, MTE, IPD and Eibach but 600 miles to a tank ain't to be sniffed at :-)

I would sooner watch Robbie cycling around on his push hog wearing his finest Lycra then attending a 1/4 strip....
