  1. Ice Breakers
    Hi, I'm a newbie to the forum and wondered what is the consensus on buying tyres tyres; is there any special requirement or just go with the garage's recommendation? Thanks

    Apologies if this is long but utterly fed up with Renault. I'll try and be as brief as possible We have a Sept 2016 Zoe which we've owned since March 2019. Feb this year the standard 'Adjust Tyres Pressure' message popped up which I assumed was due to the sudden drop in temp. Reset the TPMS and...

I am based in SW London and collection is preferred although am happy to meet the buyer at a supercharger nearby if that...

  7. Kia Soul EV
    I had my Soul serviced and had its MOT done before the lease runs out on Monday. I am buying the car and thought why not let the lease company pay for it. It passed with flying colours. My front tyres are nearing the end of their life. I have about 4mm to go. What are people's thoughts on...

    I recently fitted a full set of Goodyear All-season tyres to replace the worn set of Michelin Energy tyres- https://simonselectriccar.com/2019/12/03/goodyear-all-season-tyres-on-the-most-efficient-electric-car/

    I have just swapped my stock e-Golf Bridgestone's for CrossClimate+, if anyone is in the market for a new set of stock boots for their e-Golf. They had covered only 750 miles from new (car picked up 20 September).

    Hi all, I'm part exchanging my Leaf 24kWh Tekna and handlily still had the old Goodyear tyres I took off last December to replace with CrossClimates, so (with the dealers blessing before anyones asks) I've swapped them back on and can offer up my barely used CrossClimates for any Leaf owner (or...
  11. General EV Discussion
    I was just wondering why my tyres are speed rated W I’ve been told that if I put less than W on, it could invalidate my insurance! Does anyone know why it’s got a W speed rating when the cars top speed is 122mph. W is for cars over 160mph. Is it because it’s all wheel drive?
  12. Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Hi all, I got my lovely 2017 Tekna 3 weeks ago, all good except for a slow puncture on the front left tyre. Took it to a local garage and they said it couldn't be repaired, needs a new tyre. The one that needs replacing is a Goodyear EfficientGrip 215/50 R17 91V and on the other side is a...

    Hi can someone tell me where to find the locking wheel nut for my Golf GTE please? And if possible send a picture of it. I cannot find it anywhere and fear it's been lost by previous owner. Many thanks
  14. First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I always like to have the best possible combination of tyres on the road and, having been less than pleased with the choice made by the dealer who sold the car to me, I have been studying alternatives. I have based my research on the tyres listed by a well known German on-line retailer. I have...
  15. Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Hi Are there any tyres particularly required for the leaf? Or is is it just a matter of choosing some in the right size?
  16. Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Hi does the leaf require any special tyres? Or will any that fit be suitable.
  17. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    I need to buy four new tyres for my Golf GTE. I have narrowed it down to four based on a low dB rating and as best as possible wet and efficiency ratings. I realise that one of the four listed below is an all weather tyre and so are a little more expensive but I'd be keen to hear from anyone...
  18. Kia Niro
    So the Niro looks like it ships with Michelin Primacy 215/55/17. Looking at the tyre retailer sites, this doesn’t look to have a desperately low rolling resistance. Anyone any idea how much difference this makes in reality to the efficiency of an EV?
  19. Renault ZOE
    Hello I am buying a Zoe as a second car to get to work (80 miles a week). I've owned a Leaf before which I leased from new so I'm sold on EV's. I'm looking at very cheap Zoe's, 2013 models. I've come across one which needs all 4 tyres which is fine (I'm thinking Michelin Cross Climates) but...
  20. First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Just a heads up as I have to find them in the shed, at least one is refurbished rim. As soon as I have them I will post here, lower price for Ampera Forum members. Phil
