Tyre Recomendations... The more the better!

Just wanting to get your opinions on what tyres are good for a car like the EA.

I'm buying some second hand tyres, and was wondering what brands are good quality, and what tyre brands should I steer clear of.

I'm looking at getting a set of 225/50/16's...

There is a place in Reservior who are coming into alot of second hand tyres in a couple of weeks, and the guy said he could sell me a set of tyres with around 90% tread for around $70-75 each. So I was wondering which tyres are good, and which ones aren't, so I don't get ripped, cuz all tyres look the same too me.. :(

THanks, guys..
Dave

well according to a current affair the khumo tyres rated the best out of the ones they tested, they were $94 per tyre.
check out their website for the other results. there were cheaper tyres that rated well. www.aca.com or something

i recently went down to millperra and bought a set of conti sports continentals that are usually on turbo porches. there shit when ther cold but after a few k's when they warm up they leave the pirelli zero's for dead....he charged me $140 ea for 245,40 zr17 so you should get em for yours cheaper considering you have 16" .

The website for A Current Affair is ninemsn.com.au/aca

I just put a pair of BridgeStone Turanza 225's on the back of my car, great in a straight line, absolute shit cornering under power in the wet.

tyre recommendation

Hey,

If I was in your case. I'd say go for size 235/60/15's all round on your EA on 7 or 7.5 inch x 15 rims or mags.

They rock... bigger the car, the wider you need the tyre. That's just my opinion.

I have 2nd hand 205/60/15's on my EA cos my old 225 Yokohamas were totally bald!!!!! Not bad for a deal $150 for 4 2nd hand tyres inc rims...

I am saving up for 235's... wages from a Pizza boy delivery driver...taking a while.

Re: tyre recommendation

FALKENS!!!!!!! I have 225/65/15's (wanted 60's but werent available at that time) and they are the best damn tyre I have EVER had. Excellent grip in dry (infuriates me on odd occasion as they wont arc up without SERIOUS aggravtion) and also bloody good in the wet. I used to have Bridgestone G Grids 225/60/15 and they were ok until they wore to bout 50%, then turned to shithouse. We never crash hot in the wet either.....
