Need a New Set of Tyres (4) - Size 235/35/R19

Just suffered 2 punctures, but checked the health of all tyres on the car and will need to replace them all.

Any deals going on as nothing is open today and i will need to complete this by tomorrow.

Being fitted to a sports car, so any recommendations for brands and deals would be of great help.

Currently running Pirelli which have lasted 35k.

From what I can see most of these high performance sets are roughly $350-$400 each - but cant find any deals worth while.

I couldn't find any current valid and active OzB deals for a full set.

Thank you in advance.

    Bridgestone is doing B3GOF sale for RE003, def cheaper at Costco, but not the best reputation from some people.
    Some cashbacks are available for PS4 as well. 19s are more expensive, consider going 18s in the future.

      I see Tyresales is doing them for $219 each when buying 4. Good deal for that size.

    Goodyear F1 asymmetric 5's would be my choice

    •  

      I'm looking at them for my next purchase. Do they have decent rim protection? I'm normally very careful but have had one or two scrapes which I'd rather avoid.

        I'll grab a couple of photos

          Cheers. My shortlist is Michelin PS4, Dunlop Sport Maxx 050+ or the Goodyears.

            @knasty: PS4 - good, bit wishy washy on the twisty bits
            Dunlop - just NO
            What about the PS4S ? Won't be long lasting, but….

            About 10mm protection by my reckoning….

            I have rubbed a couple of kerbs with these, no marks on rims thank sweet baby jesus

              @oscargamer: Thanks very much. Looks like a good option. The PS4S are available in my size, but are a lot more than the Eagles. Glad they are keeping the kerbs away…

                @knasty: What's your car out of interest?

                •  

                  @oscargamer: A high yielding E63 AMG. high yielding for the local servo and my mechanic…

              I was expecting the same - I've had mine on for 30,000km so far and there's still about 4mm left. About half my travels are highway kms, but I'm still a surprised it's lasted this long. What I find a little strange is the front and the back have the same amount of tread (without rotation).

                @bobbified: Good to know !

                What's your car?

                •  

                  @oscargamer: Sorry, I have to disappoint and say that it's not enough of a high yielding investment. I've got a 2016 TT Quattro. (Cue the hairdresser comments….haha). The PS4S do come at a premium, but I'd say it's well worth it.

                  •  

                    @bobbified: Being a Quattro, surely you would expect very similar wear front to back? (like a front to back mullet :o)

                    •  

                      @oscargamer: My understanding is the later model quattros are "on demand" and not constant AWD like their predecessors (like an uneven mullet! 🤣). The front wheels do the turning so I would still expect the front to wear faster than the back.

                      Actually, now that you mention it, the driving mode might have something to do with it. Depending on the selection, it sends power to the back wheels at varying ratios between front and back. Someone else might have a better explanation than I do.

                        @bobbified: There you go .

                        •  

                          @oscargamer: It just seemed weird the first time I was looking at rotating the tyres and realised it wasn't necessary based on wear. Maybe the turning on the highways scrub off significantly less tyre than city driving. I had a WRX before this that was AWD and I regularly rotated the tyres on that.

      Yup was just about to suggest these too. Recently had these fitted on my Megane RS at about $950 for a set of 4. Coming from Michelin Super Sports these feel just as great. I was wanting to go for Pilot Sport 4s but they were gonna cost me about $300-400 more for a set. As I don't do track days I couldn't really justify the purchase.

      •  

        A very wise choice for a car :)

        280 or Trophy or older model?

        •  

          Older model, a 250 Monaco edition. Got it somewhat recently and have been loving it. Am I right to say from your wheel picture you're driving a MK4 Megane RS?

            @puzzles2: Just getting 3 x Michelin Pilot Sports 205/45zr17 / 88w Pilot for our RS Sport Clio, quite costly but I made the mistake of changing one tyre (had a puncture) to the Pilot sport, so thinking I should change the other 3. the cost for 3 is $735, Bob Jane T-Mart having some discounts atm. 4 for 3, or $100 off or something….

              @BlipBlipBoo: When I was tyre shopping I found that regardless of cashback promotions, Tyroola was the cheapest for where I live. They run 15% off every now.

          •  

            @puzzles2: Yes indeed. But to be honest, any French hot hatch gets my vote !!

  •  

    There's been a few buy 3 get 4 deals posted in the last month. That's usually the best deal going.

    Looks like you've got a Golf R.

    PS4S are currently $333 a tyre on tyrolla

      not necessarily. I have the same specs, but not a Golf.

    Michelin Pilot Sport 4. Brilliant tyres, quiet and super sticky in the wet.

    PS4S </end thread>

    I suppose you could've got the P Zero from mycar couple of weeks' ago for under $1k a set IIRC.
