The best price for Dunlop tyre ?

A friend of mine is looking for the best price of Dunlop tyres SP9000 18/40/245 for a T-Series.The recommended retail cost is $570 in Melbourne,I can get them at Beaurepairs in Moorabbin for $510.
Are their any better prices about town.
Cheers John

Re: The best price for Dunlop tyre ?

I have paid anywhere between $399 and $480 for these tyres. Never more. I've bought them three separate times and most have been in the $470-480 range.
