Yeah I'm also in Australia - Canberra.

The roads vary a lot and frankly, now I have proper suspension (eibach pro-street), I need proper tires. I don't care much for looks but the fidigy RFT are annoying.

The problem is I have about 60% tread left! I doubt I can sell them too.

What tyre do you use for a daily? Need decent grip with low noise. 17" are'nt too expensive I think.

235/45/17 should give me good acceleration and grip with a reasonably comfy ride on the coilovers. That would be a win!

cheers
