Replacement Tyres Prices
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)
$220 - $238 - $250 - $280 - $297
$175 - $225 - $219 - $215 - $228
$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
