tyre and oil question

Postby memphisto » Sun Mar 12, 2017 3:34 pm

hi,

recently got a 2.0 Atlantic 2006 reg and loving it.

2 questions really, i serviced it as soon as and went by the manuals 5w 30 recommendation but reading a few posts the consensus seems to be that 10-40 semi synth is best for quietening the tappets etc ?

and also going to get new tyres this week as the previous owner has different tyres on i.e not even pairs of tyres just different tyres on the back and a pair of low tread on the front.

I'm thinking of going for avon zv7 but in 225/45r17 instead of the standard 215/45r17 ? will these fit and also has anyone had an experience of these tyre on the coupe ?


all help appreciated

Thanks

well got the tyres yesterday,

what an improvement, i appreciate they were budget and not matching before, but the ZV7 are so much quieter on the road, better braking by a long way and drive in the cumbrian wet as if it was dry !

Very happy with them overall, now onto the service in a couple of weeks time would appreciate any advice on the oil though :) If it helps after reading alot on here, Ive checked the service history and it looks like 10/40 semi synth has been used every time except for me which has me a tad worried.


a little more info on the car if it helps on the choice of oil, i changed the base level Bosch plugs for denso TT, changed the plug leads, replaced the rear two parts of the exhaust, swapped out the standard air filter for a K&N and its now at around 84k miles.




thanks
