I’d be interested to see these also.

That’s great.

I think I’ll be doing this to mine soon.

Many thanks.

I’m keen on going for slightly over sized tyres and tyres that have better grip in the wet.

According to Oponeo’s website the range of tyre width suitable for the Twizy’s 4Bx13 rims is 125 to 165. This doesn’t consider whether they will clear the bodywork but Roel has already done that bit.

The charts below show there’s little difference in diameter by increasing width by 20mm and reducing profile from 80 to 70.

I’ve done a bit of research and the wet grip rating of the OEM tyres isn’t great and, surprisingly, neither is the fuel efficiency rating?

It’s not the easiest thing searching for matching tyres of different sizes but I now have a short list of three options - shown below.

I’m favoring Goodyear at the moment but any further experience would be much appreciated.
