Just replaced the rear tire and pads on my 16 F3-T, went with the (Discount Tire) General Altimax RT43 215/60R 15. Took about an hour to remove and an hour to replace, hubby bear mounted/balanced new tire.
Noticed right off, the speedometer & GPS now live in harmony, speedo used to read 4 mph higher then GPS.
Ride seems smoother and rpm's are a little lower at cruising speed, on a 115 mile loop almost reached 40 mpg!

Going out to the shop right after lunch to replace the tire and brake pads on my F3. Got the Altimax RT45 that replaces the RT43.
Have a question for you. Did you have to replace the O Ring that is under the rear pulley?

Did you take off Tire and bring to Discount Tire to get mounted and then install yourself ?
