Cheap Tyres

put my Pursuit on the hoist today to check the tail shaft noise checked the tyres on the front for wear. (nagtangs or what ever they are $200.00 a pop)
Absolutly amazing.
been running them at 60 psi and very impressed with the even wear.
Last set did around 25k and through the wire
these have now done the same and hardly marked

Re: Cheap Tyres

I just have to say with a wife an d two kids I think of cheap tyres as much less than $200 a pop; in my book they're expensive tyres.

I admit the original SP9000 are a problem for mileage.

The are made for European High performance cars & I think the compound may be too soft for our conditions.

Most owners I have spoken too are happy with the grip of the sp9000 but not the life of the tyre or the cost of a replacement.

If anyone has a tyre they could recommend to grip as well both in dry & wet, conditions with an improved life I for one would like to Know.

I did not think Nangkangs were ZR rated, if not correctly rated they will effect you're insurance policy, this will give the insurance company an excuse not to pay a claim.

The nang kanngs @60 psi or what ever they are are better value than dunlops
@45 psi

tyres as long as they are round and black they all wear out eventually they still get you from a to b the same as the expensive ones

Re: Cheap Tyres

max inflation cold is 50 psi, so your running 60 cold when the tyre gets hot your actually running closer to 66psi, as for tyre milage at the end of the day its the car and the driver which will dictate tyre life, tread compound has absolutely nothing to do with anything becouse its not rated in a way where you can say one is softer than the next, having said that thought the cheaper tyres are made from crappier synthetic rubber as apposed to high end stuff like yokohama and bridgestone who use alot more natural rubber. although its no a zr rating, its fine becouse you are not altering the load rating of the tyre on the car. speed ratings have been dereged so its not a huge drama
