Re: **What Tyres Do You Have?** Reference Poll Thread


A: Sumitomo HTR Z111 245/45/ZR18 100Y
B: Performance road tyre with extra load rating
C: $275 a corner
D: No noise, cant tell on fuel yet, completly transformed the handling capability of the car from the stock setup.

Edit

D: no noise at all, faultless on road, good on gravel, excellent in the wet. Fuel consumption on gauge is up 1 lt per 100km from stock wheel size.

RE comment below. besides the advice of the tyre fitter who I have had a 10 yr association who said these are more comparable to bridgestone RE"s, pirellis etc not the tyres $50 dollars cheaper than them, Sumitomo are basically the Japanese side of Dunlop producing performance tyres used on V8 supercars etc whilst Hero are alligned with Nankang and Federal which are duds in my experience.

@ Rockmonger

I have the same size as you but Hero Milanza and same load rating
Bargain price too, I cant remember but I think around $150 ea.
Ride is great and handling much better, more road noise than im used to, but not an issue

Re: **What Tyres Do You Have?** Reference Poll Thread


Replaced the poor durability standard Dunlop ST 20's on our TS Diesel at 34900KM with:

A) Cooper CS4 215/60/R17 (original size)
B) Touring pattern (the only Cooper tyre made in this size)
C) $280 per tyre from Longreach Motors QLD
D) Fuel consumption UP by .5L/100Km. Road noise about the same as originals, better grip on both gravel and bitumen, but this is probably not unusual for brand new tyres. Confident and happy with them so far, but disappointed that they brought fuel economy DOWN.

They have travelled 2200KM.

Cheers

Much happier with these than I was the Pirelli Scorpions. These are quieter and the handling is much better. Did a big(ish) drive down south last week and they were great. Going to Straddie this weekend so will report back. By the looks of them they'll eat up the beach!!

1) Michelin Pilot SX
2) 235-50 x 18"
3) On road pattern and great in the wet.
4) Good source of second hand available (ultra low kays) at $150 each fitted.
When the supply runs out I'd be worried to find out how much they are new!
