Re: Reasonably priced tyres for 17"?

I'd go yokahama A539's.. little bit more expensive at around $240 a tyre but they're a great all round tyre. I've driven two different cars with these tyres and they're fantastic in both the wet and dry. Personally in that price range i'd go something from Bridgestone like a G-grid 3 or something along those lines. I've been driving on Bridgestone S02's for the past 5 years and cant fault them

Re: Reasonably priced tyres for 17"?

try the Kuhmos, I've heard they are very good and resonably priced. I'll probably get them when I go to 17" rims too.

I can Vouch for that Cheech, I just had A539's fitted to my car earlier today and I am already very impressed with them. Although I havent tested them in wet conditions, I already would recommend them, for anyone with 17"s in that price range.

I doubt there are any decent 17" tyres for that little money.

Re: Reasonably priced tyres for 17"?

I picked up some pirelli p6000's for $185 ea.
Had them in a spare room for a while, and fitted them recently. Best tyre I have ever had.
It was a bargain and I jumped at the chance as my old ones were nearly worn out (and rubbish quality), found the add in the paper, lucky I guess.

Re: Reasonably priced tyres for 17"?

Saviour - kumhos are the go in the price range you nominated. Get the 104s if you can, but the 102s are still good.

The TSW Hockenheim's you have for sale - what car (year/model) are they currently on?
