I went for Pirrelli P6000, considerably better than Bridgestones RE92's in the Wet and Paid $122 fitted and balanced in June last year, which was on par with the Bridgestone price.

Price varied widley, I contacted the four Pirrelli dealers in Canberra and the price varied by $70 from lowest to highest.

just had a look at the pirelli website, and the widest 15" is only 205, I was hoping for 215, or larger

I am a HUGE wrap on the Yokohama A509 tyres!! Great grip in all surfaces and they look great (tread pattern), which I think is also an issue...

Cheers

I payed about $125-$130 each thru a mate, but I think you could find them for about $150-$160 each , well worth it though!!

i just got a set of 225/60/15 Brigestone GIII on my car, unreal grip, esp in wet, very quiet, fairly expensive though, cost $625 fitted and balanced (stick-on weights) and think i got a good price...215s should be cheaper though of course.

last tyres were 215 firestones, they were shocking, not impressed at all. (only cost $110 each though)

Slick, Quick and Fulliii SIK!!!
