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


Got a little something extra in the paycheck and thought I would buy some new tyres. The last set, brand new street tyres put on by last owner, got 3 flats in just a couple of weeks, with some screws being to blame from a nearby construction site. I have since kept that set and am planning on using them if we head back to the city and/or as spares for trips where two spares is needed. Went with some AT tyres this time as we do about 75% offroad driving but still wanted some fuel economy when we hit the bitumen.

 A. Yokohama Geolander 225/60/17
 B. All-terrain
 C. Cost: (we live remote so cost was always not going to be pretty: $330 a tyre - fitted)
 D. Slight increase in road noise on bitumen, car feels like it sits up taller - perhaps the more aggressive tread, fuel economy seems unchanged (i use a fuel-log to record fuel consumption). I took the car out on quite a rough rocky track on the weekend, lowered pressures and had no problems.

Re:


A. Coopers CS4 Touring
B. 90% Road, 10% Off road
C. $198 per tyre
D. Excellent ride and quieter than the Dunlop ST20s they replaced.

For comparisons sake, I did a dB check before and after. Worn Dunlop ST20s at 115km/hr were 75dB, the new Coopers are 70dB. The difference is actually quite noticeable.

Pirelli Scorpion ATR


 
Pirelli Scorpion ATR

 A. Tyre Size: 225/65/R17
 B. Tread Pattern: A/T
 C. Cost: $1250 (Set of 5 - $250 ea.)
 D. Level of satisfaction: Very quiet. Much quieter than the stock Dunlops. Comfortable on the road and traction/braking inspires confidence. Very competent in most off-road conditions (had them off-road in the snow a couple of weekends back and they were great). I did plenty of research and spoke to people with real-world experience before purchasing. They're supposed to be very puncture resistant but only time will tell....

It's early days yet but I think I'm onto a winner emoticon

A. Tyre Size: 225/60/R17
B. Tread Pattern: A/T 70/30
C. Cost: $1000 for four
D. Level of satisfaction: not happy. decent grip and ride around town, but 2 sidewall cuts in 15,000kms is ridiculous. Previous tyres were fine for 40,000km with no damage to tyre

Falken Wildpeak A/T
215/60/r17
A/T
£450.00 for four fitted (at my home address)
road noise slightly greater than my last tyres (scorpions), no noticable difference in fuel use. far better off road than last set whilst not making any difference to my every day driving.
(can't understand the F and E ratings they are given as i don't find that accurate)

B. Tread Pattern: A/T 70/30
C. Cost: $350 each (ouch)

Re:


Pirelli Scorpions 265/65 x 16". Vast majority of k's done on road except when visiting a relo's farm a few times a year and occasional off road during holidays in a bit of sand.
I have had them on for a a while and cannot remember the exact price but they were a cheap compared to other better quality road tyres. Around the $ 200 mark each fitted & balanced. I find them a better on road tyre than the standard Bridgestones it had. Better grip and feel. One thing I found was the tyre whine is significant for a mainly on road tyre. I've done about 40,000 so far and have about one third of the tread remaining. I would buy them again but the whine is annoying at times.

A. Tyre Size - 225 x 70 x r16
B. Tread Pattern - BFG All Terrains..
C. Cost - $250 per tyre, paid cash and got all 4 at once emoticon
D. Level of satisfaction - so far so good. Only fitted today. They do have a larger diameter and give the xtrail a slight lift. We run the BFGs on the gwagons at work so I thought I'd give em a go too..
