tyres

got a new tyre on today but noticed a difference, the original tyres say 88y after the sizes but the new one says 92y, now the manual does say 88y are the ones so can anyone tell me what the 92y bit means and whether it makes a difference or not, cheers.

88 or 92=load index
y=speed rating

load and speed index: advices about tyres

88 suports 560kg and 92 supports 630kg

Using a different spec tyre may invalidate any warranties you have left? Possible!
