Out of interest, how much is a bit pricey?

Well ive only got 15' stock alloys, and the C-drives that i bought for them cost me well over $300 for the pair, $350 infact. For 15's thats pretty expensive... Well imo it is.

P-Zero Corsas are awesome tyres along with P-Zero Rossos but i think they only come in the larger sizes... seriouly if i were to get a good set of tyre it would be a choice between C-Drives and TPG 6 to 1 half a dozen to the other

You can get Bridgestone G'Grid II's for about $130 a tyre. Stick to the road like glue in the dry. But BE WARNED in the Wet they make your Falcon literally slide all over the place on take off. Even sometimes withthe slightest touch of the accelerator

Yeah like a lot of things these days you are pretty much paying to have the Bridgestone name as well. The only other good thing with the Bridgestones is they do last a long time, that is if you dont do too many "burnouts" etc with them. I had a set of G'grids for 18months before I had to replace them (down to the indicators). Now I am running the newer G'grid II's on the front and they are heaps better than the old G'grid I's in the wet.

Hrmm... food for thought... another $45 dollars a tyre (off XRFan101 prices) is quite a lot for the C-drives...

Have Bridgestone turanza's atm, and am quite happy with them, had them for 15months, and how ever long the last owner did, and they are just getting slippery now (almost ready to get changed)
