Re: New Tyres

We don't make main stream tyres here, all tyres on imported cars come from overseas.

The price I quoted is from tirerack..

Re: New Tyres

Yes .. it was $491 for 5 tyres.

I hadn't seen anywhere that Australia sold BFG's for the 18inch rim.

Thanks for the link pwyss.. I'll give them a ring but I wouldn't be surprised to learn the cost will be $400+ a tyre..

In terms of tyre.. From my reading I understood the D694LT was the same as the US brand Dueler A/T Revo 2..

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes

Hence why I was picking this

Yeh I got a quote for some Pirelli pzero neros I ordered for my BMW 7series.

Shipping was 321 for all 4. And it worked out to under AU$1100 shipped. Lol dealer was asking 860 and 950 for fronts and rears each respectively.

Lulzy. Tire rack is awesome!

Re: New Tyres

The 491 figure was for 5 tyres. I just rang JAXQuickfit and the 265/65R18 has a 6 month waiting time and is the only brand to supply this size in Australia.

edit the typo

Sorry I thought you called Jax re: the BFG 18inch 265/65 tyres and a price, and that they were a 6 month wait, not the Bridgestones..
