tyres - bridgestone g'grids prices

guys i got bridgestone 225 ggrids on the back

i dont know how good they are because ive always had them and never tried anything else. are they actually decent tyres ?

anyway being winter and under the legal limit its time to replace rear tyres.....what should i get

would a $300 pair of dunlop le-manz fix me up no hassles, or would these cause a rougher, more unstable, and less tractionable ride.

otherwise any other suggestions ?......should i stick with 225's ?

i dont want to spend more than $350 at max

I've got the g-grids on my car (215's) and i think they are a great tyre especially in the wet.

I've heard the Dunlop lemans tyres (fitted to new AU's from factory) aren't that good.

A lot of people recommend the Yokohama A359's so maybe check those out.

You should be fine fitting up to 225's on a 15 inch rim - or so I have been told.

Re: Goodyear

245/65/15 means

245 mm wide tyres
65 aspect ratio (height of sidewall is 65% of tyre width)
15" wheels are what it fits on.

Tyres

I put a set of pirelli p5000 215/60/15's on my car and i am stunned at how good they are. No loss of traction in the wet and bloody good grip in the dry. They have a wider centre groove than the 6000's and most other tyres. Would reccomend them to anyone. Bout $160 a tyre.

Re: Tyres

I just put a set of new tyres on the skyline. I used to have g-grids... which i wasnt too happy with once they were 50% worn.

They cost me 595. fitted and aligned for all four tyres. They are Falken ZE-somethings (a non directional tyres) and were 215/60/15 . The are SUPER QUIET on the road.. and drip like glue in the wet + dry. I couldnt be happier!
