Re: Recommended replacement tire

Sat Nov 11, 2017 12:00 pm

I just put on a set of Avid Ascend (LRR) this morning. One change I wade was put on 205/60 R 16s instead, because the speedo was always off even after I adjusted it in the console. Now everything is correct and I have a proper speed reading. We were able to suck 39,000 miles out of the original ecopias, and there were probably a thousand left, but it was not work it.

I also pumped the tires up to 45 psi out of a max of 51psi on the sidewall. Over the next few days I will evaluate the drive and decide if I should leave it at that level or decrease it a bit. The ecopias were kept at 44, and the wear was even across all four. What helped was my obsession with rotating the tires every 5,000 miles. So yes, I will put one thousand miles on these then rotate them :D

I haven't waded through all the tire posts yet, but thought I'd pose the question:

Any advantage going to a 60 series, vs. 55? 95% of our driving is 40mph or less, very rarely at highway speeds, neither of us are speed demons, looking for max efficiency.

Has anyone tried Continental TrueContact, 205/60 X 16? Currently $94 at Tirerack, Vs Ecopia @ $107.

TrueContact 70,000m treadwear vs. 40,000m for the OEM Ecopia,
