Never heard of Zeetex Tyres but they don't get brilliant reports.Good evening folks and thank you all for the warm welcomes. I didn't expect to get so many positive response's so quickly. I live in a rural area with bendy, bumpy country roads but travel to the city daily for work and although we're going on a lock down for 6weeks this won't effect me as I'm an essential worker and the load I carry is 15st 😅
For as much as I know about cars it was definitely a newbie mistake not checking the fuel hatch recommendations on tyre pressures 🙈 my yeti is a 2014 2.0 with very low mileage (no fancy name on it) bought private from a lad (definitely not a car guy mind) who originally got it from a dealership, so i guess he thought 49psi was the norm, i just hope that it hasn't had a negative effect on any of the suspension parts ie cv joints, drop links, top shock mounts, wheel hub bearings ect ect. The tyres are Goodyear (efficient grip) on the front and Zeeteck (which I've never heard of) on the rear and they're 225/50/R17 W98 not what I previously wrote with 225/55/R17. The front tyres look at about 60% whereas the rear are at 90%. So i think il be swapping them around. The 16's are something i have been thinking about through reading the forums but for now I'm only spending a €1 to play around with tyre pressure over €600-€800 for new alloys and tyres but when the time comes for 16s il be appreciative of everyone's opinions on fitment details and tyre sizes for them.
Are you considering buying Zeetex tyres? Read tyre descriptions, check the reviews and make the right choice.
Overinflating is unlikely to have damaged anything other than the wear rate for the tyre. The Yeti is very rugged as I proved many times.
