P6000's aren't noisy like P5000's

Just thought I'd chuck this in - I just had the P5000's on the front of my car replaced with P6000's (they were flogged due to crap alignment), and the 6000's are nice and quiet but you can hear a distinct rumbling comming from the rear. Also, the P6000's aren't directional like the 5000's which makes life easier for rotating etc. (if you have all 4 6000's of course).

I just replaced my P5000's with P7000's.

Little to no noise, and stick like the perverbial sh1t to a blanket...

SOMETIMES........I wake up "grumpy",

But I usually let HER sleep.........

I'm running 235/45/17's all round.

I actually lease my car and the maintenance is through Hertz lease so I think they do a deal with the retailer.

I went through Bob Jane T Mart and I heard a figure of around $1300 fitted and balanced.

They are honestly the best tyre I have ever had.
