    Hello peeps,

    I currently have asymmetric 3 tyres on my car and need one of the front ones changing. I didn’t put XL on last time but seems to come up when searching online for tyres so I’m unsure if I should have them with my 1.4tsi. Also there is 3mm on the opposite tyre so is it best to change both? Thank you

    If it was me and budget allowed then i would be changing both and if you wanted an emergency spare keep the 3mm one. XL is just for extra load so stiffer sidewall which i would prefer as it will move about less.

    on my last car i found Uniroyal Rainsport 3's to be very good tyres, very good in the wet, fairly quite and quite grippy
