Tyres for Cougar

Anyone know of a replacement tyre for the Cougar beside the Michelin Pilots they come with. I've tried Dunlop and Goodyear but they don't make a 215/50R16 to fit.

If you want the same size, you can only get the Michelinís at a decent price. If I were you, I would replace them with 215/55/16.

They are essentially the same, except for the wall height, which will be 5mm taller than your original tyre, which is no problem, and youíll save yourself some $$$.


I can get them in the following brands for the following prices:


- Federal SS595 91V directional $175 each

- Goodyear Eagle GA plus $185 each

- Dunlop Monza 200R 93V $195 each

- Falken ZE326 VR $200 eac

- Bridgestone G-grid series#2 93V directional $220 each

- Yokohama TW1 93W directional $225 each


All prices include GST, fitting, balancing, and a lifetime warranty. Prices may vary depending on how many tyres are required.

5.4 litre ignition AV falcon, now we have ignition

Just wait until the electric hybrid cars are fully developed with super cappacitors and alcohol fuel cells and regenarating brakes, then we'll have ignition

No conventional petrol engine car will stand a chance with these new environmentally friendly cars.

Your right, but hopefully i'll be dead before I see such a vehicle.

Long live the internal combustion engine!
