Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


Hi, well chnaged the accessories/engine belt over on the street in the dark on Friday night. I was impressed to see there is a nice system that allows you to use a screw driver to hold back the tensioner pulley whilst you put the belt in place.

Got the Maxxis fitted on Saturday morning, have put over 500ks on them in wet and dry and happy enough so far. Got 79,000 out of the last set of Toyos so at half the price the target is to get 40,000 plus out of the Maxxis. At the current rate i'll be able to let you all know soon enough :-).

Bob Jane's got Kumho 215/70 R16's for $175. Anyone got any information on how good these tyres are? My wifes car, a Hyandai Getz came with Kuhmos and they lasted 55000 km, pretty average for a car that only weighs about 800 kg.

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


How are people getting tyres so cheap? I've been looking at tyres here in Adelaide and the prices are ranging from $205 to $285.

Yet I've seen people on this forums get Coopers for $185 ea and the cheapest I've found is $260

It may be where you are located. I rang around Canberra recently for some Kumhos and the prices varied between $240-275 each but I paid $110 each for the last pair I bought in Sydney. We go to Sydney quite often so I picked up another two whilst up there. The prices had gone up to $130 each, still a saving of around 50%.

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


i sold some 215/65/16 ling longs the other day to a dealer that wanted cheap AT's they were like $130 and almost identical pattern to the BFG ATs. i agree with most with the maxxis, the MAP1's are an excellent pattern and tyre for the price. couple of months ago 215/65/16 pirelli str's were 200 ea which is a good price for them

'saunders1949' - i think 30psi is very low and will trash the edges of your tyres in no time as well and affecting your fuel economy (on sealed roads, if you live on a dirt road dis-reguard)

Re: Budget (sub $200) Tyres


Hi all,

Just got some Maxxis MA-P1's put on. $550 all up with wheel alignment and RACQ discount. So far they feel much better than the Toyo Tranpath's, BUT they were about 90% shagged. Although just legal they were really bad in the wet towards the end.

Will update on the maxxis as they wear - but seem ok so far.

Cheers,
Shane
