a spare. The tyres are Toyo "Open Country" M65 27 X 8.50 x R14 LT. I
had these tyres before and have been quite happy with them in their
road handling characteristics, and getting
something like 63,000klms from a set of 5,rotated every 10,000klms.
Economy tells me this time to only rotate the 4 tyres front to back
and keep the spare as a spare only.
The tyre people put 32lbs psi all round. The attached VW Syncro plate
in the passenger door states 36lbs front and 43lbs rear. If VW is
correct dosn't this go against the viscous coupling argument of
keeping all tyres /wheels the same tread/inflation all over to prevent
Can anyone help me in converting 27x8.50xR14 into "Volkspeak" (ie 205
x R14 97R) I hope.
