Just realised today that I have Dunlop runflats on the back wheels and Bridgestone runflats on the front of little TUX... now... to be honest, I didn't look when we bought the car (used) so I'm wondering whether this sort of thing is the norm, and are there any abnormal things I should look out for then?
I'm almost at the point where these tyres need replacing... so I'm after recommendations from Aussie people on what they recommend... we don't have a spare, and I'm a fan of the runflat - but cost is a nice factor as always - so... help me out.
Have you got 16" or 17" wheels?? I reckon the Goodyear NCT 5 runflats on the 16" wheels on my previous Mini were heaps better than the Pirelli euphor@ 17" on the current car which I really don't rate that highly at all
Mine are about that worn liam and they do seem to be a bit iffy in the grip department.they were sliding around a bit on the run on monday up over the mountain.the road was a bit damp in spots thou.they are a great tyre so i be more then happy to go the michelins again.
Since u have Bridgestone runflats i'm assuming u have 16 inch wheels.
If u like runflats and get another set of the Bridgestones. For runflats they were reasonably cheap. $215 per tyre. Much better than Goodyear runflats that i had before. But this is in Melb. U could make it a daytrip.
i have bugger all tread left on any of my Dunlop 17" Runcraps after 15800km, and i don't take them to the edge that often at all, cos they don't have enough roadholding ability to make me confident enough to have any fun with the car around corners.
