Re: Best choice tyres for 14’ wheels?

I put hankook 185R14c with 102 load rating on mine. Very happy.
My bus is slightly lowered.

Re: Good Tyre size for 14 inch wheels?

Hi Paul.

I went for the 185R14 C 8 ply tyre. It has transformed the ride and driving. No more wandering in to dips and cambers . It has 102 load rating.
Hope that helps
Thanks
