pay bonus today so its time to replace the rear bags (225/55/R16).

i got a quote from bob jane the other week for continentals for 179 but they might be soild out so me thinks ill go the falkens for 169. Using bobjane because i get fleet discount with ADF i.d.

Anyone got a better recommendation under 200 each? heading out about 2:30 this arvo

goodyear eagle f1 gsd3.. ring up anywhere and everywhere... whoever have the cheapest price, bobjane will have to match. but then again with the trade discount they may not do price matchin etc..

i got two of them put on the front(225R16) for 179 each at bobjane up the road. everywhere else was askin for 209ish.. but 1 bridgestone centre on the other side of perth had em on discount.

Yokohamas are awesome tyres too, go the C-drives for performance and the S 760's for reliability. I garantee you will be happy with them.

Next time you need some tyres, give Vince a call at InJekt'd. Weedon Close in Belconnen. I just got a quote for the same tyres for the inlaws Fairlane and he quote 120 a tyre for Michellin or Yokohama's. He did quote them another price, but I think he's confused. Anyway, don't have the number, but he does good prices. Less than Tempe Prices in Canberra.

Dude, for the money you are willing to spend, get yourself a set of Dunlop SP3000's. I cant rate them high enough in 16in size, but am very disapointed in them for 17's. Ask wagging how good the dunlops are. He hates my old Dunlops as he can no longer get it to bag, too much grip.

i had a set of them on the front of my EF and never again! good as a rear tyre they got a lot of grip but on the front anything above 80km/h you had trouble keeping the car on the road.

Terrorist, I'm happy with the Dunlops in 16" as well. Voids, what width did you have them? I've got 'em in 225/50 on the front of the sprint, and it hardly tramlines at all? Feels really direct, and on highspeed sweepers it just wants to turn in more and more.
