Hi Exuberant - welcome to the forum.

The Federal tyres are rubbish - I would be at least ditching the steers!



Hey Richard, did you just answer your own post above? LOL emoticon

Yes - I could see no one else was going to! Don't mind talking to myself occasionally. emoticon

But it is my answer - I have booked the car in for two new fronts.

hahaha emoticon No worries mate, I think no one heard of such tyre brand, that's why you didn't get an answer, so your decision to change them is a wise one emoticon

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


Replaced all four Federal tyres with Yokohama G051 HT/S - decision based largely on views on this forum (thanks).

The bloke at the tyre shop said that the cracking around the bead on the Federals (which were 2 years old) would only get worse and that it was a good thing to replace these.

Inflation on the new Geolandars was recommended at 40psi - the Federals (which cost $180 per corner) had a maximum pressure of 36psi! All up, I think anybody considering cheap tyres should be wary of these types of issues.

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


Here is an update on my KUMHO tyres. They are reaching the 20,000km mark. I have to say that these tyres have out performed my expectations. Cheap yet good enough.

Over two years, I had one puncture and $15 fix lasted until today with not further problem. Pressure check at petrol station done only once every 8 months or so. These tyres still have some 85% to go. Noise is as good as the original Bridgestones. Wet performance is just a notch below Bridgestone but the amount of speed camera in Victoria keep me staying within speed limt most of the time which would not make any difference between Kumho and Bridgestone.

Kmart is the place to shop for Kumho.

GeoffM - I found the "Maxtour" GT Radials for $150 each in the 215/65R16 for the Ti alloys in my little hamlet just outside Cairns.



Well nearly 5 years and 90,000 K's later I need to start looking for new tyres.

One pair has done 90k and the other 80k. Rotated around 4 times (when replacing:-front rotors, Rear rotors and front pads and a wheel alignment). Generally running at 32psi and 36psi when towing.

I reckon about 20k towing camper trailers up and down the countryside. Along with the exceptional tire wear they were pretty quite and handled fine. Only looking to replace as the outer edges are getting down - mid section still plenty left

I may have left the review a little [sign in to see URL] don't make the Maxtours any more emoticon - Now I on to some light reading of the 81 pages on replacement tyres

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


Just got 5 new 225/75r15's fitted to our Exy.

I believe the Toyos previously fitted were the original tyres (we bought our vehicle at 43000km) and with a stop-gap second hand pair to get us through 2011 while we were overseas (parents and in-laws shared the car while we were gone), they would've traveled ~75000km on the original 4 and out to 86000km when finally changed.

After a lot of research, I had been trying to track down a Hercules Terra Trac AT which I had been quoted ~$135ea before we went away. These are sourced from the states and have nice aggressive looking tread backed by solid reviews (the few I could find). Unfortunately I couldn't get hold of the 225/75r15's anywhere in Australia (believe me, I tried!) and the wait on a special order, plus lack of replacement tyres meant we gave that option away.

We ended up going with 5 x 225/75r15 Kenda KR28 Klever AT's. These aren't as aggressive looking as the Hercules, but they should be fine. We paid $750 for all 5 including fitting, balancing and a wheel alignment in Moorooka, Brisbane. The wheel alignment is usually $65 for the exy, so I guess this makes the tyres $137ea.

With a spring lift, the tyres fill the guards nicely and everything ran very well on a trip up to Harry's Hut last weekend (loaded up with 3 nights worth of camping gear and supplies, plus a canoe up top). The last half hour or so off road wasn't exactly intense, but with a night of rain before we headed home, we had a bit of fun and I was very pleased with how everything handled.

These tyres are also surprisingly quiet on the bitumen. If you listen for it, there is some noise at around 60kph, but on the highway we didn't even notice them!

So I guess here's another option for people looking for reasonable quality cheap tyres. If I remember, I'll update how they're performing sometime down the track. At less than 65% the fitted price of big brand tyres, we've only got to get past ~50000km to be ahead (assuming we'd easily get to 80000km on a big money set).

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


Hey John, are these new tyres mounted on the factory steel rims?

We are just about to replace the original Toyo’s on our manual T30 X-Trail this week and I was wondering if you have had any problems or issues with the larger tyres rubbing or fouling on the car anywhere?

I am looking at a couple of different brands and sizes of tyre; including a 225/75/15, which I will test fit at the tyre place. I like the tyre size you have fitted but I was also wondering if you have noticed any affect on the acceleration or gearing after fitting them? Also have you noticed any difference in braking ability at all?

Really keen to hear your thoughts on this.

Cheers
Mick
