Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


A 225/60 would reduce the difference to 1.4% and a 235/60 would almost be the same as your 215/65 and both fit a 6.5" rim width.

A few others have 235/60/16 tyres with no problems and some with larger rims (18", 19" & 20") have had tyres upto 255 without rubbing.

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


I'm not sure on how important this is; but the load rating of the Goodyear Regatta in 215/60R16 is 95V. Whilst the speed bracket is fine for the X-Trail (V - who can go 240km/hr anyway?), the load rating (95) is under the standard 98.

My biggest problem getting tyres for my chosen alloys was finding the tyres that had the correct load rating. And this was the eventual issue that pushed me up a class of tyres, making them more expensive. I was going to suggest the Yokohama G051 as a good H/T tyre for the size you are after, but they too do not meet the load rating requirements.

Not sure where this stands with insurance.

Jalal, how did you do with the load rating on your new spanky wheels?

Probably been posted elsewhere in the forum, but here is a legend for ]tyre markings.

Guys,

We're slowly moving away from the topic of this thread which was meant to be there to give guidance on budget tyres and their prices only.

The discussion about speedo impacts, load rating and the like should continue to get captured in the Tyres Replacement thread please.

Back to the topic..
I recently replaced my standard Duelers (crap) on my Series 1 Ti-L with Pirelli Scorpion STR's, 215/65/16
Great H/T tyre, miles ahead of the standard [sign in to see URL] got 50,000 k's out of the OEM tyres
Paid $189 a corner for the Scorpions, [sign in to see URL] free tyre rotation every 10,000 k's thrown in.

They look good with some tyre black, look a bit beefier than the Duelers as well

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


Wow! Thanks Xcited!
Now I'm X-cited.

I have been hunting around for options in this size and didn't even think of Pirelli.

You'll get no argument from me that the Duellers are garbage. 30,000 km's and mine were unusable!

Where did you find the Pirelli's?
I'd be happy to give 'em a go (especially at that price!).

I'll be able to give a good comparison too since I've just fitted 2 new Dueller 689's.
I need two more new tyres, so I can fit the Pirelli's to the rear, rotate them forward in 10,000 and compare the difference.

Thanks heaps for the suggestion. I had not seen a Pirelli option suggested anywhere.

Cheers
Craig

Damn - Thanks Jalal!

I guess Pirelli just wasn't on my radar and I missed it. I'll be on the phone to Bob Jane and Tyrepower tommorrow and will keep everyone posted on how they perform against the existing bog-standard (new) Bridgestone Dueler 689's.

Cheers
Craig

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


Got the Pirelli Scorpions fitted to rear yesterday at Bob Jane T-mart Ringwood. At $200 even (incl. disposal), this was best price I could get in Outer East Melb (tried 5 places).
No free rotations at BJ either.

Surprised to see that same tyres go for $169-179 at BJ T-marts in Sydney w/ rotation.

Even so, verdict seems to be that it is far superior tyre to Bridgestone Dueler and even at my local prices, $20-30 cheaper.

Cheers
Craig
