Ride: BF MKII XR6 Turbo

Location: Victor Harbor
SA, Australia

Finally getting the new rear tyres this wednesday, not going with C-Drives either as the guy said mabe the 'car' is too agressive and needs a harder compound tyre... Also to easy up on the acceleration :roll:

Ended up going down a size too for now 215/60/15's insted of 225/60/15's :roll: it sucks i know but if i can get 30,00kms+ out of these than that will be worth it.

$285 for em, they are Khumo S 790's but a little bit better so not sure exactly what they are.

Hmm hopefully they are money well speant, i didnt really want to pay over $140 again each for a tyre but hey you get that i guess.

I got some bridgestone turanza 225s recently for about 130 a pop. Very nice tyre, much better than the goodyear eagles i had on when i bought the car! They were rubbish!

michelin energey, mxv5 i think? Thats what i have on mine, they stick good, and so far, ive gotten 37000 out of them. Being a p plater, they havent had an easy life, but they still have a tiny bit of tread left! probably a few more weeks

VIC, Australia

I put new Yokohama A500s on my EL on Saturday, in 215/60/16s. They replaced a set of exactly the same tyres that I got 67,000kms out of, without wearing them to the tread depth indicators. Couldn't reccomend them enough, plenty grippy, wore perfectly evenly on a lowered non-camber kitted e-series, and got excellent life out of them.

Funny, my car had turanzas all round when i bought it. They were quiter than the C drives that i have just had put on. And they grip better during lower speed stuff. and dont squeal when you are braking heavy and touch a white line!! :lol:

I am almost looking forward to when i can put another set back on... just gotta do another 30 000 km on these first!!
