trading post have big lists starting from small sets of tyres up to 20 inch tyres.. mostly all stating prices beside them... although a lot of those stores are sorta on bankstown/lakemba/granville/lansvale area in sydney though...

depends what brand and model tyre you want. I'd be expecting anything from $150 per tyre to $400 per tyre depending.

I got quoted $250ea for 235/40/18 Sava Intensa's last week.

I got rorted in Albury last year though, paid $325ea for Firestone TZ100s. Had to pay that or else miss the boat to Tas.

Dont get savas. You pay for what you get, spend 350 ea, n you will have some decent tyres.

$200 a pop for brand spanka's! (Real good quality! :shock: )
Haha, nah you can get Falkens for around $250.
I don't usually spend too much on them as they either get scrubbed out on the front atm, or don't last too long on the rear, so...
