Opel Corsa: Wheels and tyres / Winter tyres. Tyre designations

Winter tyres

Winter tyres improve driving safety at temperatures below 7 °C and should therefore be fitted on all wheels.

In accordance with country-specific regulations, affix the speed sticker in the driver's field of view.

All tyre sizes are permitted as winter tyres.

Tyre designations

E.g. 225/55 R 18 98 V

225 : tyre width, mm

55 : cross-section ratio (tyre height to tyre width), %

R : belt type: Radial

RF : type: RunFlat

18 : wheel diameter, inches

98 : load index e.g. 98 is equivalent to 750 kg

V : speed code letter

Speed code letter:

Q : up to 160 km/h

S : up to 180 km/h

T : up to 190 km/h

H : up to 210 km/h

V : up to 240 km/h

W : up to 270 km/h

Choose a tyre appropriate for the maximum speed of your vehicle.

The maximum speed is achievable at kerb weight with driver (75 kg) plus 125 kg payload. Optional equipment could reduce the maximum speed of the vehicle.

Directional tyres

Directional tyres should be mounted so that they rotate in the correct direction. The proper rotation direction is indicated by a symbol (e.g. an arrow) on the sidewall.
