I'd get G Grids over those two, well at least over the Bridgy Turanza's.
I'm not totally up to date with the 15" prices, but i would think they'd be about $150 from a Bridgestone dealer. Otherwise try any other brands, you should be able to pick them up for close to $120 for some decent other brands.

I've had the potenza g3's on my ride for three years now and recon there bloody great! they grip really well as apose to others I've tried that tend to slip out at the rear,and my last set lasted two years so was happy with that.I've got 16' 225/50 and payed $170-$180each not bad considering I got a couple of years out of them! and by the way not saying there aren't other good brands out there,just comenting on the question asked between the two different tyres!
