Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - 2020 / Re: Michelin Energy Savers

Great videos Culzean, well worth watching.

I think we had this discussion before and I did read reports supporting this theory but in my experience I would always fit the 'best' tyres to the driven wheels and in the case of FWD, those wheels also do most of the breaking.

Indeed we have, but there's no harm in restating the reason why you should always endeavour to run the best tyres on the back axle - front wheel understeer is far easier to control than rear wheel oversteer.

I think if I was putting in the huge mileage I used to do in my last job my choice would be a different one.


It's a good point. Some vehicles would wear out a set of tyres over a winter, for them it's a no-brainer.

Same AWD car with winters and all seasons


I've seen the first video before and that's what made me go for 4x Winters on my Jazz Mk2. What I would say about the second video - Winters vs All Seasons - is that clearly Winters will perform better. But I don't live in Canada so my compromise is less extreme. Plus I don't need a second set of wheels or be faffing around getting tyres changed over.

Here is a good site for finding compatible wheels

Jazz is 4 x 100mm PCD,  45mm offset ( ET ) and 56.1mm centre boss.

Search by PCD or vehicle ( options at top of page )

Yes, that is my thinking and certainly with a puncture repair cost of @£20-30, it makes no sense to go down that route for the sake of a replacement tyre. Thanks.

I had considered a matching alloy for OH's car, there's space for it in the boot. There is probably a steel option out there, lots of wheels fit the Jazz hubs.

Hopefully it can be repaired, but to be honest, up to say 20% worn, I would just fit one new tyre.

I donít get the mirrors thing (thatís what the camera and guidance system is for) but the seat would be nice.

If the ACC does apply the brakes in this situation it does so very, very gently. I was overtaking trucks on a long uphill stretch yesterday and sometimes I was a fair bit over the cruise speed. The speed appeared to just bleed off as I took my foot off the accelerator. I have never noticed braking in this situation and I would say generally the ACC doesn't have a noticeably light touch. If it feels the car in front is getting too close or a steep downhill is getting the speed up, it brakes pretty definitely.

Here is another comparison - normal 2WD car with winter tyres compared to 4WD with summer tyres.  One good thing about winters on steels is your expensive alloys are in the dry garage while the cheap steel rims get all the salt etc. and while the winters are on car your summer tyres not wearing out.

I have a pesky puncture in the rear tyre which is losing about 10-15 PSI per day and I doubt it will be a rim leak at that rate. If it cannot be fixed, I will be forced to replace the tyre. I don't like replacing a single tyre and certainly not on a part worn set which means fitting a pair. This leaves a barely worn Bridgestone with plenty of mileage :(. My thinking is to use it as a spare but that will require a 16" rim (curse of curses). Is it possible get hold of a steel wheel that is suitable for a Jazz?

There is a Honda person, based in Bracknell, who posts here from time to time.

Whether he is in a position to pass on requests I don't know.
