    Q....what were used before the advent of specific motorhome tyres

    A....standard commercial tyres.

    both carry the same speed and load rating.

    question answered. :thumb:

    Bizarrely, I've spent much of the evening researching this exact size of tyre (without the "CP" part, which means technically means "add 20 quid a tyre for rich motorhome owners"). I ended up deciding on Avon RV9s, also from tyreshopper for only 107 per tyre, with a 121 load rating. Unfortunately, I need 7 of the things.

    I am looking into uprating rear axle weight on Fiat Autotrail Dakota (via SVtech)

    If I add basic air assisted suspension to what I already have, I increase mgw from 4250 to 4500kgs. If I change tyres from 116rated to 118 rated on rear axle, I will increase rear axle weight from 2400 to 2600kgs - which will allow for a decent bike rack to be fitted. (allowing for overhang etc).

    Big thanks to everyone for the replies:thumb:

    what you need is a different vehicle i would say . sticking alot of weight on the back of a fiat isnt a good move it lifts the weight on the front and loses traction .

    Even better. You can get SVTech to approve the tyres as 225/75R16 118, without "CP" on the documentation.

    A fine line.......

    Ooooh.... now there's a brave man, or one who's very confident that Mrs D does not read this forum!!

    As hinted at above, there's a fine line between bravery and stupidity! LOL.
