Chikoo, you want me to submit your "design" question to Mazda Japan? It'll be interesting to see if they respond to me. btw, I work for a japanese company that supplies factory automation systems, and Mazda is one of our customers....sooo they might actually give me real answers or blow me off, in which case I can try to go through my company channels....Interesting discussion. especially because I myself (bieng a one-time design engineer for automotive bearings for the worlds largest bearing company) realize that there are umpteen different things that go into the selection of a product on top of the the load rating itself. In all of the cases, the product selectors will select a product from a range of products that meets/exceeds the needed load ratings AND that meets their aesthetic design requirements and few more non-technical aspects related to vendor-customer relations.
So like I said earlier, unless a product manager from Mazda who was responsible for the tire selection on the Mazda6 speaks, we are at this time simply trying to interpret the way we see it. is 91H/v safe. Absolutel yes. Is it the bare minumum? it is safe to assume it is. But is that the reality? ? ?
Hey Toyoguy, I was waiting for you to chime in. I am gathering info right now, any good info on whether 215/55R16s will fit on my '05 Atenza 23S will fit or not. That's it. Wonder if Crossbow is seeing this discussion....You want to pick a fight, posttosh, fine. You seem obsessed with proving me wrong to the point you will make unprovoked snide comments toward me. You are pathetic.
MadBiker, you really want to take advice from this guy?
