Yeah mate. I paid about that for mine.

Very quiet tyre. Done about 5000km on them with no issues.

Can't really comment on wet performance, as I don't punish my car, but I haven't lost traction with them yet.

Edit: They are 245/45/18

Thanks Wongy. They are for a VE with 18s on it from the factory, and size you mention is correct for mine.

Will keep these in mind when I'm ready to go.

Bridgestone Turanza are a good tyre though bit pricey for an 18in -20in wheel.. I got 120,000kms out of a set on 17in back when i had my vr commodore. Atm im running Kumoh's 18in and they seen to be wearing ok so far only done 20,000kms on them

will never go bridgestones again, overpriced & tram tracked like a mother farker
I agree about the bloody things tram tracking, they're hopeless!!!
I drive my SSV on dirt and stuff as well and think the Bridgestones that come with the car dont do so well, quite floaty.....
On the plus side I've got just on 48,000km out of them but theyre pretty well on the wear limit now.

Hi I got a set of Maxxis MA- Z1's fitted, balanced all up cost me $1100 and I am very happy with them.Grippy in wet and dry.FYI my potenza's lasted 45,000km at 38 psi in Perth where weather is warm most of the time.
Another vote for Maxxis here, great value for money.

U had bad experience with them?
Had them, lasted just under 8000km, let loose in the dry at 90km on a stock 5.7L.

Traction is shocking in these tyres, drive like a pussy in the wet. Waste of $125 a corner. There's better options out there if your that cheap.

Dunlop too over priced for what they claim they be.

What do you all think is the best deal on these 245/45/18's in regards to value/performance

Falken 452 - $190
Falken 722 - $229
Falken 912 - $209
Dunlop sport maxx - $210
pirelli P7 - $255

There are other options but the 250 mark is all I think I will spend this time. The B/stones I put on only lasted 30000 and can't justify that spend again.
