Can't go wrong with what he said ^

Dunlop star specs are pretty good as well.

But for all around comfort and performance you cant go past PSS

tirerack.com - do you use a freight forwarder as they don't appear to ship to OZ

Yeh its a bit tricky.

Step 1, select tyres you are after and

step 2, send email asking for a shipping quote to your front door

Step 3, pay via bank transfer (a bit of a pain but damn they are cheap)

I bought the following NON RFT Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Positions from Tire rack last November:

2 x 24YR8RE050APP 225/40R18 BRIDGESTONE POZ RE050A POLE USD 205.00
2 x 535YR8RE050APP 255/35R18 BRIDGESTONE POZ RE050A POLE USD 254.00

SUBTOTAL: $US 918.00
FREIGHT: $US 333.83
****FEDEX INTíL ECONOMY****
TOTAL: $US 1,251.83

To avoid duty & GST you should endeavour to make sure that the total price (exlcuding shipment costs) is less than $A 1,000.

By the way, I'm very happy with the tyres.

Update:

I ended up ordering two Michelin Pilot Super Sports from tirerack.com ($234 each)

+ Fedex postage was $256 USD for the two tyres.

Bank wire via Commonwealth Bank Netbank (very easy - cost extra $22)

Arrived here.

Kmart Tyre and Auto fitted them for $20 each.

Thanks for putting me onto Tirerack.com

More importantly, don't wait too long to get matching fronts - my car was weird with RFT/non RFT mix.

No duty paid.

I have some el cheapo MAXXIS on the front not the RFT anymore.

It handles fine for how I drive.

Haven't got the slime/mobility kit yet, any suggestions? SuperCheap Auto?

You obviously aren't too keen on steering predictability then.

I got my slime kit from here http://www.cabelas.com/catalog/searc...h-All+Products. stuff the local chap that wants 100 .

Plus while you are there have a look at some of the sweeet lights they have http://www.cabelas.com/product/Home-...3Bcat104478480



I think another member saw them on special for 80odd recently

You can get the slime kit from Autobarn. I got mine from Autobarn Dural. It was on sale for $80 including the slime and pump. I think Repco stock them as well.

Are all tire shops able to remove RFTs? I heard that they need specialised equipment?
