I am a newbie to this and seek suggestions to run-flat tyres, if you can advice on them.
I have to buy new run-flat tires for my Lexus IS 300 (225/45/17). The tires that came fitted on the car were Bridgestone ER033 (Costco selling at $190) and they crashed out at under 30k kms. My searching around has given me options to look at Michelin PS4 (expensive $260/- in the list), Pirelli P 7 (less expensive). My drive is mostly within city. I am not savvy with these things so asking for. Any suggestions will help me.
Hi Asehgal. I am not qualified to answer your question. I bought the Pirellis because of their wet weather handling. They are softer and handle very well on wet roads but the have a shorter life-span compared to other tyres. To me handling is more important than life-span - Tyres are your life as they connect the car to the road surface.
What tire pressure for 235x45x18 p7 please?
The pressure is specific to a vehicle. So if you look on the driver door (where the door shuts) there should be a chart that tells you what pressure on which tyre
How much for 2 tyres size 245/30/19
2 tyres size 275/30/19?
Go to www.tyresales.com.au where I purchased my tires and run those numbers, you will get a price for each.
the best price may not be the answer as the tyre may have sat in a warehouse for a while. it is best to go to a tyre dealer that has a high volume in the pirelli tyres. I purchased mine from tyrepower , they can advise the price over the phone for you and check on availability for you at the same time. hoping this helps.
I have a 2003 Solara SE convertible, 2.4 ltr, with 15" wheels. Have 205 65R 15 94H on the car and are 5-year-old Fiske tires.
Currently rides well, but seems to take the bumps somewhat harsh. But they are 5 years old and the front are worn to the wear bars.
I want the smoothest riding and quietest tire for this car, almost irrespective of the mileage warranty.
What would you suggest?
Hi there, for smooth ride and quiet purpose, I always recommend Michelin Primacy 3 St, while its not available for 205/65/R15, then YOKOHAMA BlueEarth AE01 will be my personal choice. Check up the reviews for this tyre you will find out something useful
I have read conflicting reviews for the Cinturato P7 tyres. Just wonder why is this so ? Does the tyre provide good handling in wet weather ?
Depends on what you ask of it. In my view, the Cinturato P7 is more of a touring tyre rather than a true high performance tyre (despite what Pirelli says), so its grip limitations may be somewhat lower than a true high performance tyre. However, under normal driving (as opposed to track driving), I have yet to get these tyres to lose traction on a wet road.
