    Same issue with the Volvo. The manucturer's recommended pressure is 2.7 bar all round. You can imagine what that feels like on 19" wheels with 55 profile tyres.

    Re: Buying a Renault Duster.

    Yes. A larger contact patch gives beter grip for the same reason.

    So a 255 tyre has 8% or so more contact than a 235, so the rolling friction will increase by that.

    This does not mean your fuel...

    The density of Al is roughly one third of steel.

    The strength of Al depends on the grade which is identified by the series, from 1000, 2000, etc to 5000 and 6000. There are higher grades, but not...
