Re: **What Tyres Do You Have?** Reference Poll Thread


1. Pirelli Scorpion ATR 225/70/16
2. Somewhere around 70/30 - 80/20
3. $[sign in to see URL] Fitted and balanced
4. No noticeable increase in road noise. Just had a couple of days rain and they seemed to handle pretty good in the wet. Can't report on impact on fuel as only had them 4 days.

Re: **What Tyres Do You Have?** Reference Poll Thread


Ive joined the BFG club emoticon

A. Tyre Size 225/70/R16

B. Tread Pattern : All Terrain

C. Cost : Cheap! $205 each Mates Rates

D. Level of satisfaction : I did notice the noise straight away, but when the stereo is on ( even at low volume ) you cant hear it. Grip in the wet is awsome! almost as good as the 20's. Will report back after the weekend about how they are on the dirt

posticon Re: **What Tyres Do You Have?** Reference Poll Thread


A. BFG Macdam 215/70/16
B. H/T 90% on, 10% off
C. $940 inc alignment (NZ dollars)
D. Did a lot of hunting around before getting these and was after predominatly road tyres as that's the use it gets.

Could not get a 65 (OEM) series here in NZ and so went to a 70 series. Speedo before was @5 kph slow and now reads 88 at 90 and 98 at 100 off the GPS.
Very quiet, on smooth seal the roofrack is now the main noise source. On coarse chip it's about 50/50.

Hugh difference in braking. I give the ABS a run about once every six months to move some fluid through it (kids love it too). Tried it with the new tyres and could feel the skin starting to pull away from my cheek-bones.

A little softer ride than the OEM Dunlop AT20s but I put that down to the increase in series. Steering about the same and the Exy pulls like a schoolboy from a standing start.

Re: **What Tyres Do You Have?** Reference Poll Thread


Recently joined the Coopers Club

A. Tyre size (215/75R15)

B. Cooper ATR (70% Onroad, 30% Offroad)

C. Total cost for 5 tyres, fitted and balanced and alignment was $950.

D. Very happy with the level of grip, both on and offroad. Perform well in the wet aswell. Slightly noisier than toyo's, especially when slowing from 60km/h. seem quiet when on the Hwy. For an all terrain tread pattern handling is excellent. Stronger sidewall means less bodyroll.

Slight increase in OD provides a little more clearance for offroad purposes.

Fuel consumption is up only by about 0.5 litre/100 km. Not much of a difference at all really.

Re: **What Tyres Do You Have?** Reference Poll Thread


Most of my travelling is on bitumen. It was a toss-up between the Bridgestone D683 and the Cooper SLE. I went with the Bridgestone because the local dealer near work really does look after us.

Size - 215/65R16
Tread Type - H/L (highway luxury)
Cost - $215 ea fitted and balanced

The tyres seem slightly noisier than the original Toyo tyres that they replaced. The exy feels good on the road, and I don't have the tyre squealing when I'm turning a little harder than normal. I just spent a week up in the Flinders Ranges, and had no trouble on the various road surfaces. There was no measurable difference in fuel economy.

If I had the choice again, I would probably go for the Cooper SLE's just based on the road noise issue.

A. Cooper Discoverer 225/70R15
B. H/T, 90:10 on/off road ratio
C. 900 bucks for 4 Fred Vella tyres in adelaide
D. No complaints whatsoever, quiet, soft riding, handling hasn't been altered by slightly wider and higher tyre, no noticeable change in fuel economy. I have done over 30K km in them now and they look barely worn. Could be looking at 100K km with this set..................

 A. Silverstone Kruizer 1 NS500 225/60R16
 B. Road
 C. $[sign in to see URL] each - I fit them myself emoticon - Mates Rates! They retail for around $[sign in to see URL]-$[sign in to see URL] each.
 D. Alot smoother than the Goodyears I had - Immediate feedback is LESS road noise! Very smooth riding tyre.

If you want a good budget tyre - this is the way to go in my opinion.
