Han is spot on ( and also our local tyre guru )

Looking at the facts

Sport Tourer =

Length (mm) 4695
Width (mm) 2060
Height (mm) 1443
Unladen weight 1350
Boot Capacity (litres) 1781

Hatchback =

Length (mm) 4576
Width (mm) 2060
Height (mm) 1429
Unladen weight 1280
Boot Capacity (litres) 1334


I have always ran the tyres suitable for the hatchback ( as they are a lot less expensive ) with no problems at all ( current mileage 116k )..

Another Question ( more with the design side of the tyre )

Do the reinforced tyres have a harder compound of rubber aswell as improved side wall design / strengthening ? i.e. would they last longer ( assuming everything else is equal ? )
