*not* ^URGENT^ *anymore* Quick Pick for Tyres

Recommended Posts

Just a quick suggestion between the two choice to replace my two front tyre coz its almost flat out on the side...

Quoted:

Bridgestone Turanza 195/55/16 ER30 -- $209 each and

Bridgestone Adrenalin Potenza RE001 205/55/16 -- $195 each

all include fitting from Bridgestone Taren Point..

I know Potenza is more for performance oriented and better grip but I think it wears out a lot quicker as well?

If there are cheaper quotes elsewhere let me know yea ;)

just want to confirm and know what other peeps think...

thanks in advance ^^

Do you have the location and address for StGeorge Tyres or contact no?

I need to get it done probably tomorrow or the latest Friday morning coz of work and cant do it on Sat coz I'm busy..

preferably around Kogarah, Hurstville, Taren Point, Caringbah area?

Thx for the info..

put in enquiry and waiting for their call... seems they take their own sweet time around -.-;;

RE001 definitely better I think but how much faster do they wears out?

and $195/tyre seems ok or not?

Talked to StGeorge Tyres and they got nothing for that size...

so RE001's a good choice for now? coz I'm not sure if 195/55/16 and 205/55/16 will make any difference?

and cheaper by a bit too...

Might be a little late, but you'll need 205/50/16. You're better off going slower than what the speedo says than to going faster.

How long a tyre lasts depends on how well you treat it. But no reason why the RE001 wont see 30k+, unless you do burnouts or have a poor wheel alignment (insist on ZERO toe).

Isn't better to get 205/50/16 as its closer to the stock rolling diameter?

205 is wider hence it gives u abit more GRIP... i think .. but i'd stick with 50 and AKS when did u move to syd?

GOT IT REPLACED TODAY WITH THE POTENZA RE001 205/50/16R...

HAVN'T DO WHEEL ALLIGNMENT COZ i DON'T HAVE TIME TO DO IT THIS MORNING BEFORE WORK,..

*opps srry caps..

and Kenneth, I went to Sydney last month and moved to Sydney early this month..

I spotted you eating some steaks wearing pink at Hoggies Northbridge just before that...

Remember when I said I might be selling all mods and the stivo as well? guess I still have it all with me and bring it all over to Sydney ^^

Cost me a fair bit but better than selling in a rush and got ripped off by Dealers...

And I think I just found out under 25 only allowed "One Mod" here in Sydney ?!?!?!
