Gonna need new tyres soon just wonderin if there's anything better than the factory spec rubber. Read the May 05 wheels mag which has a tyre test for 17's + 18's but no Dunlop SP3000a's. Opinions appreciated

We had a chat about that at the Kurnell cruise. I have the Falken Ziex ZE326 on my falcon. I have had them for 12 months and they still have 85% tred on them. They have worn evenly all over. They grip really well. I may just be lucky. But the tyres I am running are going to last another 6 months. Good going I reckon. I suppose every car and setup is different.
