Yeah - doing the same thing right now.
Couple of places I'd recommend checking out. They don't have all the Oz tyres, or sometimes they are named differently, but the reviews can be helpful. Look for readers reviews of rear drive cars - stangs, chevs etc.
I like tirerack because they have ratings that are compared to one another.
Anyways, I did have a set of P6000s a while ago. This was on an Impreza so how well this relates to a Falcon, I'm not sure. They stuck well in both wet and dry. The one gripe I had was that while they held on to the road well, when they went, they went without any warning at all. There was never any feedback/feel that you were pushing the tyre. Grip, grip, grip, gone. I put that down to a very stiff sidewall. It was enough for me to not buy them again.
I'd go the BFGs (Ultra Hi Perf Summer) ahead of the Dunlops and the Pirellis (Hi Perf Summer). Funnily enough, the pricing for the BFGs seems really good vs those. BFGs should also wear a little longer than the Toyos (300 or 340 AA A vs 280 AA A). I haven't really found a lot of info out there about the GIIIs and Yokies. I reckon the C.drive is too new to tell and the GIII is overpriced. You could get the spare done with the money you save on the GIIIs.
Mmm. Sounds like I'm convincing myself of the BFGs....
But that's just me :)
