Re: Replacement Tyres


I paid $66 for the alignment last time so it hasn't changed much - I figure that wheel alignment is just another cost that you wear as a normal part of the maintenance of the car, and i should probably get it done at least yearly rather than every 2 years when i replace the tyres. It irks me that very little in the way of costs for consumables or services for cars are advertised. Having to ring around or submit a webform for a quote for things like tyres is a monumental PITA.

I have a road bike which i use for commuting to and from work 3 days a week (saves paying $20+ per day in parking fees, tolls, petrol or using the bus) that i've recently built up from a frame and was readily able to price and source the groupset, handlebars, pedals, saddle, etc online from the UK, with the prices for all the gear very available to look at. The groupset alone was $300 cheaper from the UK than what i could buy here in Aus, let alone the other stuff i put on. It was only a mid range groupset too - the price differential at the high end is close to $1K which i can only assume is due to the "Australia Tax". Car parts pricing however seems to be some sort of uber secret, there is hardly anything reliably published online for pricing apart from forums like this. Wish me luck, i gotta source some new brake pads for the X-Trail soon, thankfully there's a listing on here that i can look at to get the right model for that!

Yeah think I'm keen on the maxxis, was there any rubbing on the arches etc with them being abit bigger?

Any photos fitted on your car?

Re: Replacement Tyres


I went with Maxxis MA-707's. Road bias tyre as most of my driving is commuting to work. Still got a good deep tread cut and drives nice on the gravel back roads. I went with 235/60r17 as most off road is on the beach and I wanted a bigger footprint. No issues so far and at $800 for all four fitted, cant beat that. Might have to reassess when we move back to Vic next year. I'll be living near the Grampians, so I might need some more bite.

I've got Bridgestone D697's on mine. 225 65 R17 which has also gotten rid of most of the vehicle speedo error.

They are great tyre which I highly recommend.

Make sure you get a 4 wheel alignment done when you get new tyres to make sure that your Exy doesn't have too much -ve camber in the rear end.

Re:


Hey, sorry i should of updated, i went with the Maxxis A/T Bravo 771's, good deep treads seem like a pretty decent tyre, they feel alot stronger when on dirt roads and also for any Perth people who know the Mundaring powerline track, I done that and the tyres were brilliant, never let me down at all, and it was raining heavy that day and the tyres gripped really well. I went for the 225/65R17, fills the arches nicely.

Photo from the weekend camping down at the Stirling Ranges WA, you can see how the tyres fill the arches nicely.
