From what ive heard the new nankangs nsII's are really poor after a bit of wear. stay clear.

Falken, Nankang, Wanli are about $100-145ea.

Bridgestone, Dunlop, michelin etc is about $220 up.

You can alternatively get second hand tyres, cheaper option. most tyres ull find up to 95% still on them for approx $70-100 a tyre (depending on brand). Try Tyre Express in Granville, 9892-3587.

I just got some second hands again, sp9000 (245/40/18s) and 235 g3's up front. You'll find its better to get second hand expensive then cheap s**t ones.

A good choice is either Marshalls (on my car) or Federal (my old mans) they are both really good performers in wet and dry!!! they are priced between $ 140 and $180 but are really good!

Im a fan of the Flakens as that is what i currently have on the car. I have had Bridgestone s03's and at the moment havent found any difference except that the falkens are a quieter tyre.

I don't think there is such a thing with tyres.. The more you tend to spend, the better it usually gets.

I highly recomend Maxxis Radial MA-V1. I don't think they've been making car tyres for long, but I remember they werte the ducks nuts when I used to ride bikes and I got them with my new wheels and I've very happy!

My ef had a bad shudder and a tendency to tram-line, and before i sold it, i put the nankang ns2's on it, and it was like driving a totally different car.
It drove and handled so much better.
I am going to put them on my ute, and they smoke real good.
