Replacement Tyres Prices


Hi Guys,

I just shopped around for 3 types of 16" tyres and was amazed at the price difference between one supplier and the other for the same type of tyres.

The tyres I asked about where:

BF Goodrich A/T (225/70/16)
Pirelli Scorpion S/T (215/65/16)
Bridgestone D693 (215/65/16)

I will start by saying that all 4 tyre suppliers I called (Tempe Tyres, Jax, Bob Jane and Beaurepaires) have recommended against fitting the BF Goodrich tyres in that size to the X-Trail and have all confirmed that they will throw the speedo-out. They said this size of tyres are suited to a larger 4WD (like a Jeep Cherokee). Sorry xtrailing, but am just going by what the tyre experts are saying. They were even suprised when I mentioned to them that Nissan fitted these tyres to your Exy.

Anyway the price range for these tyres are as follows in Sydney (Sutherland Shire)

BF Goodrich

$220 - $238 - $250 - $280 - $297

Pirelli

$175 - $225 - $219 - $215 - $228

Bridgestone

$190 - $212 - $225 - $248 - N/A

All prices include GST, Fitting and Balance.

Looking at the above prices, I think I'll be going with the Pirelli Scorpions (70%-30%) type of tyres.

If anyone has better prices for the above tyres, please let me know emoticon

Re: Replacement Tyres


Hi Guys,

I'm now also looking at the option of going to wider tyres in 235/60/16

The following 2 tyres seem to be the best candidates:

Bridgestone D694 and Toyo Tranpath SU

I have checked with the tyre shop people and they said that going to the above size from 215/65/16 should not cause any problems.

The only downside is that I need to buy 5 tyres in the 16", now that I'm changing from my existing 15".

Hi Jalal

Just make sure you have no issues with rubbing at full lock. Have you checked with Bridgestone about the D694 - great looking tread but I think they are all "LT"'s so the ride may suffer a bit?? The TASU's are very similar in tread pattern to the older Bridgestone D693's.

Hi Mark,

THIS is the Bridgestone tyre I wanna get and it's an A/T 50%-50% split tyre. The tread on it looks great and agressive enough (guess it'll be a bit noisier than the Toyo's)

I don't think I'll have a problem with this tyre rubbing at full lock, as it's only 233mm wide and I know that other xtrailers have 17" and 18" tyres fitted (which are much wider) with no problems.

Hi Jalal

My mistake, I thought all D694's were LT's but it's not the case. I reckon it's a great looking tread pattern.

I've got a big nail sticking out of the tread on the left rear OPAT already, just my luck!!

I ran 693s LT and didnt notice any difference in ride. I think the advantages of LT for offroad outweigh a minimal drop in ride comfort. (saying that without trying to sound critical about your comment or as a smart### emoticon )

Not sure though - when I looked at 694s at the shop they were LT - I wonder if the "sidewall protection" in the add is anotherway of saying it - which as you say is not available in all the range.

Jalal - knowing you emoticon , I dont think you would really have liked the road noise from the 693s - but I understand its a lot lower in the 694s.

Re: Replacement Tyres


Hi Jalal
Just looked at my tyres and they are 215/70/16 694 and they are NOT LT just normal (if that makes sense)
Yes I also looked at 235/60/16 size because I saw it on another exy and it looked very nice being wider but I ended up going for my size because I wanted more ground clearance and still be legal.The 235/60/16 is very similar to the standard height of 215/65/16 so there will be no problems.
The 694 is a pretty good tyre I reckon but you will get slightly more road noise (nothing too bad) but this will happen with any AT tyre over HT. I originally was going to buy BFG AT but cost $250 each. I went for the Bridgestones because they cost me $157 each with NMRA discount at Jobsons at Taren Point.
Just a word of warning to anyone getting larger tyres,make sure you get 5 tyres not 4 as this will damage the drivetrain if you run tyres of different profile in 4WD.
Jobsons were pretty good and did a staight swap on my unused spare for the new 694.
Regards JD

Thanks for the info JD much appreciated.

I'm going with the wider tyre that's for sure.

The price you paid for your 694's at $157 seems like a bargain, as I've been shopping around for some time now and the cheapest I managed to find was $249 a tyre.

Haven't tried Jobsons.

Just called Jobsons and was quoted $230 (with the $8 NRMA discount) on the 694's Bridgestone in 235/60/16. This is the cheapest price so far.

Didn't quite match JD's price, but I think the price is different due to size.
