Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Tyres for 16" wheels

My 2017 SE CVT has Michelin ES as standard fitment. I'm impressed so far. I think they are going to outlast the Dunlop 2030s I had on the Mk2. Handling and road noise good as well although I rarely push the car anywhere near the limits.

I went with Michelin ES on the advice of a few here and am impressed. They've been on the car for 1.5 years (~25k miles) and are all above 5mm. They'll probably get me through winter albeit only just. I prefer never to go into winter with less than 4mm of tread so they are getting close but with luck they'll last through summer for over 2 years of service which ain't bad.

The Dunlops that Honda put on from new were awful.

Hi,

What tyres are people putting on the 16" wheels these days? Will need to replace the rears soon.

Thanks

Well I ran the Yorkshire 10 Mile in atrocious conditions yesterday in almost exactly the same time is in lovely warm summer type conditions last year. I guess I don't run fast enough for the wind and rain drag to affect me, ha ha. The chief difference was fighting off hypothermia at the end due to be wet and how cold it was.

Even warm summer rain has a marked difference on consumption. I know how much it reduces my coasting distances.

Euro Car Parts do drive shafts for 150.

Reminds me of a trip last year down to Cornwall. Ferocious wind and rain kept the speed down (rarely got above 60) and the mpg (actual) was a disappointing 49. On the way back vastly better conditions and recorded just over 56 mpg (actual).


The drag factor of rain is sometimes underestimated. The car has to plough it out of the way.

Weather makes a huge difference to the fuel consumption figures. Warm, dry and calm give the best and anything other than that knocks the numbers off.
On my Saturday drive I am roughly half way into the prevailing wind and half way with it. The thing is it doesn't balance out. Into the wind is more of a minus than with it a plus. I'll have to rig an automotive spinnaker!

With the bad conditions over the weekend, i thought it might be helpful to share the following with you.
On Saturday I went up to see my daughter in North Lincolnshire, from the West Midlands, a round trip of 250miles.
On the way up the wind was behind me and the fuel consumption was noted at 59.8mpg, generally sticking to the 70mph speed limits.
On the way back, speeds were somewhat less, whilst battling against the wind and fuel consumption was down to 49.2mpg, which I suppose in view of the conditions was still reasonable.
I think this shows that when checking out fuel consumption, weather conditions need to be factored into the results.
