Clouds/S were originally designed for cross-plies so fitting them with radials requires some adjustment to front suspension and steering alignment. What should these adjusted settings be please?

Roy, I have been running an S1 for 9 years on radials without altering any settings , and have had no adverse handling or tyre wear issues .

My car runs fine on radials without any changes. The radials are a smaller diameter so your indicated speed will change by about 3-5%. They are such a improvement to the bias ply's you will love radials.

This is a good toy to play with. For best results you need an up-to-date version of Java loaded on your computer although it isn't essential. You can mix & match all the tyre sizes to get as close as possible to a perfect speedo reading. However it cannot compensate for the difference between a new tyre and one that needs replacing ASAP.

If my memory is correct - when radial ply tyres were made standard on the Shadow, an upgrade to "compliant suspension" was made at the same time. I do not know what this involved and hopefully someone will be able to advise the relevant details.
