HI Noons,
This caught my eye last night when the tyres were in a sale for $285 each. Sales ended but they stock many brands with "free" install.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

My tires are getting close to the limit, so I contacted Tirerack.com for some pricing.
I was wanting Yokohama Parada X as a good replacement @US$176 a corner. In AU they are quoting $525 each. This is just BS that we pay so much for the same tire. With shipping @$544 for 4 + Fitting @$100, I would still save $750.
Unfortunately tirerack will not ship Yokohama to AU, so I am looking at the BFGoodrich g-Force, which cost a tad more now. Anyone else have any suggestions for a highway terrain 20" ?

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Could try Pirelli Scorpion STR.

No Idea what they are like, just popped up on the Bob Jane T-marts Tyre search.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

I note one of our US friends has just installed Toyo Open Country A/T 2's. My experience with the Toyo HT's (Running 18" on a Pajero) was awesome in the dry......by far absolutely exceptionally brilliantly grippy in the wet and super quiet. However on anything slippier than wet grass, 4WD had to be engaged...but they were a true H/T and dug in without over/understeer with the Paj in 2WD.
The new A/T' 2's however look to be worth checking out. Whilst they are not advertised as a 20" on the Toyo AU website, it might be worth asking around to see if they have landed here yet. They would be on my list for sure.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

I believe you'll only be able to get them online from the US as they don't do them here.

Thanks for the info! No wonder I can't seem to find them anywhere. Any tips where I can get them online? Apart from tirerack.com? My stock kumhos are worn out after getting 40k kms out of them.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Tirerack is pretty good.
Email them for shipping prices as their online prices are bogus.
Postage to Aus is around $650 for 4 tyres, so it's a pretty good price!

The tread pattern is identical to the D697s but unfortunately they don't come in that size. I read somewhere that the Revo 2 and the D697 are the same. The Revo 2s are manufactured in the USA for their market and the D697 in Indonesia for our market. Give a Bridgestone Select store a call. Try Adam at Jobsons Hornsby 02 8999 5144. Maybe they can get then in for you at local prices.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Just got the cooper zeons put on this morning.
They look unreal.




As I was driving back from the tyre shop, a bloody stone chipped my windscreen!
Called insurance, so hopefully they'll be able to find one soon..
It's not a bad chip, but there is a slight crack which I'm worries about spreading.
