Default Tyre Advice

Time to replace my rear tyres and I find Sumitomo don't make the same size anymore.

So I need to find some suitable rubber...265/50 15.

Want a tyre that will provide good all round grip and reasonable mileage yet still be suitable for some events.

The tyre shops have recommended the yokohama 352 and the only other one they have available is the BF Goodrich Euro's...

Some advice and approx prices would be great...

Thanks

Hi MoonDog,

Tyre choice for 15" rims is pretty limited especially if you want performance tyres. This is one of the reasons I've decided to go with 17" rims. You might want to give Stuckey tyre service a call in Melbourne on (03)9386 5331. They do a lot of performance tyres for production racing etc and may have some better options for you.

Cheers
