I had Pirelli P5000 (looked as though a plumbers soldering iron had been dragged throught the middle) on my AU XR8. I had fantastic wear and grip from them. A lot comes down to how and where you treat them.

My XR6 ute came with 235/45X17 Dunlop SP9000's standard. They are wearing fast, but the wet and dry grip is outstanding after I worked out the right tyre pressures!! I have recently been quoted $445.00 ea to replace them!
The SP3000s are the standard tyre, but Ford run out of them sometimes, so they fit the SP9000s to get the cars out to the dealers. The pirce diff is amaxing - SP3000 are around $250 each, SP9000 for around $375 each is the cheapest i have seen.
