Coming to Melbourne in April, can anybody recommend a Tyre place for tyres and a wheel alignment.

I am currently looking at buying one of these two types of tyres:
Bridgestone B5 30 $230 ea
Or
Dunlop 3000A $220 ea
Which is the best?

I'd go the Dunlops the SP3000A come standard on my/the BA XR's, Beaurepaires-50 Maroonda Hwy Ringwood 3134 Ph:03 98703344. They gave me a quote on a set of spyder mags R18'S and Eagle F1'S 245/40 fronts & 265/35 rears $2700 fitted and balanced this quote was $650 less then 3 other places in the area

re tyres and alignment having worked in the tyre and suspension industries if bridgestones are austrailian made go the dunlops i know its wrong to say but the japaneese tyre technoligy is far better than ours asfor the wheel alignment it is very hard to find a tyre store that will do anything more than toe in if there is a camber or caster problem they won't to know about it but there kits available at any pedders store or there is minimal adjustment on the existing upper bushes for shims so spend the little bit extra it will save you heaps in tyre wear PS OUR XR6 has done 42'000k on the dunlops about another 10'000k till they will need replacing GREG venomXR6
