Spot on, ask a question. Talk about the answers and keep it on topic.

Hey mate, i got some quotes for a 235/60/14 tyre from some shops in Hobart and the best decent tyre was around $220 a corner, the Yokahama radial 352.

I only wanted them for my ute which i don't use as a daily and thus didn't want to spend near on a grand on some rubber..

I ended up getting some re-capped tyres from Sparco tyres in Hobart, they just happened to have some Yokahama radial 352's as well :D they were $85 each which included fitting and balancing.

They are all the same price so if you have a Sparco store or something similar up your way then they might just have some nice looking 352's.


also if you're concerned with recaps I've driven mine around some rather sharp corners at decent speed, 80+, and never had a problem. Sparco guarantee them against defects etc until they are 50% down on the tread, which is a lot better than most tyres..
