Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


Our Dunlop RV 501's have just got to 80,000kms (set of 5 rotated about every 10,000). Nearly to the tread bar, so not sure that they'll go another rotation. At that rate there doesn't seem much point in changing to something else (except that they have probably been superceded). Since I'm on 15' rims, might try the Coopers or the Bridgestones. Does this mean I have to read the 39 pages again?

39 Pages - that would be the other thread emoticon

If you're happy with the Dunlops and your driving style and conditions isn't going to change any time soon, then stick with them. If you got 80,000 from them, and Geoff only managed just over half that, and given the Coopers are guaranteed for 80,000, then would it be safe to assume you'd be able to get 160,000 out of a set of Coopers? emoticon

Edit: By the way, I was surprised at how cheap the Coopers were when I was geting quotes - they were much cheaper than alot of other brands (meaning they would probably fall into the "budget" category).

Yep, for these are tyres which are not classed as "budget tyres" you gonna have to refer to the other thread or THIS Poll thread.

Ordered a set of Cooper lifeliners - $200 each fitted and balanced with free regular rotations and checks. Thought of going with the Dunlop 501's again, but none in stock.

Are you sure the rotations are free? I remember when I bought my BFG's, Bob Jane gave me a voucher which I was to produce every 10,000k's or 6 months or so, to have the tyres rotated and balanced - but there were prices marked on the voucher. I'd double-check (or at least read the fine-print) - I find it difficult to believe anything is free these days!

Incidentally, if you do not have the regular rotations done, they can refuse warranty claims (as per the fine-print on the voucher). In your case, if they're free, you've got nothing to lose by doing the checks, but for me, at $25 per checkup for example, the actual price of the tyres escalates considerably over the life of the tyres...

I also disagree with the "extra warranty" (also known as "road hazard warranty") option when you buy new tyres...

I think it's Cooper's that offer the rotations through the tyre places. When I was getting quotes for some Cooper ATR's, the Jax rep said the rotations were free every 10,000km, and did mention that they had to be done for the warranty to stand.

Maxxis update:

Generally a good tyre. They only recommend up to 36 psi (We used to run the dunlops at 40 Psi) so feel a bit more sloppy especially when towing. Other than that, seem to fine.

Hey there, Just replaced the original Toyos after 61043 kms (still have the new spare too) with a set of Cooper Discovery H/T 225/70/15, rolling diameter of 692mm, so OK with tolerance.

Paid $185 a corner for these at Eagle tyres at Granville.

Ride so far has been good (only one week down). Will post wear on these.

Also free rotation and balance every 10,000 kms..

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


Hi Guys,

Any updates on those running the budget Maxxis tyres? I am considering getting a set this week. I have the Maxxis Bighorns on my Jeep and have been happy with them so far.

The xtrail will clock over 200,000k this week or next, are there many others in the 200,000+ club?

Cheers,
