I know you guys will shudder at the thought of someone using ... aaahh....retreads. But truth is I am a student = no money (yes, I know that is no excuse for safety). Also I doubt the 235's on the back of my ute will last very long anyway, thats WHEN I get it back.
THE ONLY SUBSTITUTE FOR CUBIC INCHES IS FORCED INDUCTION
Bridgestones (I think) for me, but only 'cosine they were on the car when i bought it. Do not know what I shall replace them with - probably remoulds.
I dont do much highway work, the EDV8 is a cruiser not a performance car , and to be honest, I usually cut my tyres on the Newie potholes before I wear em out, so I cant see any reason why i should spend $100+ a tyre when I can purchase new tyres made from recycling for $60 odd dollars.

Originally posted by Rastus Dunlop's for me. LM701's (le-mans) 235/45/17 on the front and the original equipped SP9000's on the back.
Rastus, How do you find the Le-mans? I bought a set of these for my Magna several years ago cost me $180 a tire and that was with a discount. After about 6 - 8 months they were down to the canvas (I kid you not!). Took them back to Beaurepaires and the guy had the hide to ask me who sold me those as they were crap!
You should have seen the look on his face when I informed him that he did.
