    Anyone run these? I'm currently looking for a set of 235/45/17 and bridgestone have these for $159. what are they like?

    Can anyone else recommend anything better around the same price?

    Bobjane suck, as I'm still waiting for a response from about 3 weeks ago, so they are out of the equation!

    Edit: what is the Bridgestone designation for these? ie RE92, ER300... because I cannot find any info on them on their website!!

    Thanks in advance.

    Damo.

    they don't really have a model desination ( i.e. re92 etc ), they are made by Bridgestone under the Supercat name ( Supercat dont have indvidual models, once a new design is relased they just use that for all their sizes ), for what you pay, they are fantastic, i recommend them all the time and i work for a BTC btw.

    Thanks guys, it seems strange that Bridgestone don't have any info on these tyres on their website.

    Looks like I'll be booking in tomorrow.

    I know what you mean, customers always seem a bit wary of them because of that reason, but once they buy them they are as happy as larry!

    The Supercats have a feel of the Firestone TZ100's. I've just put 2 Supercats on the front of the VN (225/16). Very happy so far. $155 each. good value too.

    JD you could help me with this hopefully, i was looking a wheel and tyre package that was advertised for 1500 or something, the wheels are named "carbon" i should ring up and ask but generally what tyres do they fit cause obviously 1500 for 18's isnt going to come with bridgestone branded tyres lol

    I'll give some free advice.

    Tyres are like hookers, you get exactly what you pay for....

    yeah i know i want something thats unidirectional and around mid range if you know what i mean.

    im leaning towards getting ve ss/sv6 18's with pirrelli P6 all seasons from wheelking, 1650 + postage seems pretty fair i reckon, considering it comes with genuine nuts, covers and is machined to suit

    best to ring and ask because ever store is different in what they stock ( except they all have a arse load of Bridgestone :D )

    at my Bridgestone at the moment cheap **** tyres of the month seem to be Neutons in the 18's.

    Brand possiblities are ( in 18" variety )

    Nexen
    Neuton
    Nankang
    Westlake
    Traxxion
    Regal

    More as well but thats all i can think of in the cheap ****ty tyre dept at BTC's:thumbsup:


    EDIT: just saw the ad online for that price you may get Supercats ( they come out in 235/40/18 ) still best to ring as it may vary state to state and store to store.

    The P6's r good only thing they r a softer tyre so u will get slightly less KMs out of them but they will perform alot better then the rest mentioned so far, id b leaning 2wards those if i was in ur shoes if u dont wanna spend much :thumbsup:
