Found a great price for the Coopers ATR in 215/75R15 at a local Tyre Factory wholesaler for $179 fitted and balance. Approx $15 better than 4 other quotes. Will book it in shortly.

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


Got a new set of Cooper ATR's for the Exy today. Price was $190 each (previous price was for Elderado), set of 5 for $950 in the 215/75R15 size fitted, balanced and alignment front and rear. Sold original toyo spare for $110 privately.

All previous prices were over a grand for this at most other tyre stockists.
Will make entry in the tyre poll after a couple of weeks so an appropriate assesment can be made.

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


I have no idea what some of you guys are doing to your tyres but I have just hit 30,000km on the stock Bridgestone Duellers and I estimate that I still have 20,000km left in them ... and I wouldn't say I have treated them particularly nicely (4WDing etc) although I do tend to get them rotated (and balanced if needed) every 10,000km, it's worth it in my opinion just to get the extra life out of them.

I'm of the same thoughts Spoony... I got my tyres 50K ago and there is plenty of use in them yet.

Hi Guys,

Can you please shift this discussion about the stock bridgestone tyres to the other existing tyre thread, so we can keep this one for the "budget" tyres please.

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres




I finally nursed my Dunlop 501's to their death. Only 47,000km which is disappointing as the original Toyo's got 60,000km

Replaced them with the Maxxis tyre for $104 each. Bob-Jane Drumoyne. Highly recomend them as a tyre shop. Most others have the Maxxis for $140+

I'll keep you posted on the Maxxis.

That does sound abit low for the Dunlops, but considering you got 60,000 on the factory Toyo's, your driving style must be fairly sedate - I was lucky to get about 30,000 out of my Toyo's - I imagine I'd get considerably less than you if I had fitted the Dunlops too.

As for the price you quoted - I recall seeing a Bob Jane catalogue/junk mail brochure in the mailbox last week or the week before, and saw the same ones - the tread looks like a cross between A/T and H/T pattern.

The Maxxis is the MA 701. Has a "old fashioned" tread pattern, if thats the right word. Probably similar to the toyos if memory serves me correctly. I'm no expert on tyres!

We brought the Xtrail with 60K on the clock, and worn out toyos, so I cant claim credit for getting them to that stage. As far as the dunlops were concerned, we eeked every last mm of rubber from those babies. Mechanics were telling us as long ago as a last year, they needed changing.
