    Uniroyal Rainsport 2's

    I know these are well recomended tyres and have found some at a reasonable price, just wondering there seem to be 2 type 225/40 R18 and then 225/40 R18 XL.
    It says XL have a higher load index but when you have a look at the info on both it says they both have a LI 92, what am i missing as there is almost £20 difference.

    XL does denote higher load capacity manly for 4x4 but you could if you wanted to,it's just a stiffer side wall, GSD's i had the XL

    Check out www.mytyres.co.uk

    I've had my last 2 sets from them, and for the Rainsport 2's in 215/40/17 they were £83 and the cheapest place I could find tham.
