Dear all

As I was unfamiliar with cars, and today I got a garage to put 4 new tyres on my 2001 laguna diesel hatchback. I know I need 225/45/R17. But did not know that I should have got 94V load and speed index type tyres. Instead I got the garage supplied me with 91Y.

Now that I have paid and used it. Will I be expecting problems in the very near future, or would you say the tyres will still manage alright?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards.

I can't help you much on this one but the new tyres - are higher speed rated than the old ones; this means they are tested to higher speeds - so they are better from that point of view.

I am not sure about the load ratings though - I'm sure a more knowledgable forum member shall be along soon.

Good luck!

You might be unfamiliar with cars but a garage that fits tyres should not be.

If they have fitted tyres which will technically make a car fail it's MOT then they should fit the correct tyres free of charge, have a word with them and if need be let them know you will take it further.

Good luck.

When I asked Renault Customer Services about this issue, they referred me to my local dealer.

My local dealer at the time was Renault Cardiff. Paraphrasing the conversation -

As the 16" wheel versions have a 91 load index tyre, they (Renault) cannot see any issues or problems running 91 load index tyres with the 17" wheels.
