What Brand Tyres Do You Use?

I'm interested to know what tyres ppl use.

I had Yokohama AVS Sport V102's on my XR6 in 235/40R18 & 265/35R18. Probably the best tyre I've driven on.

This may have been done before but there's a few newbie's on here now & most ppl find it interesting what other's have to say about different brands.

Dunlop's for me. LM701's (le-mans) 235/45/17 on the front and the original equipped SP9000's on the back.

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.

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.

Pirelli P5000, the best 225x50x16 I have used. Streets ahead of any of the Yokohama products in that size, and better than the Dunlops of that size as well.

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.

Fulda Carat?? (american). 265/35/18 rears and 255/35/18 fronts, feel pretty good, not cheap though. Will put Kuhmo's on next though.
