    What's the most common size 15" tyres in Australia?

    I've had 17s on my last few cars and always went with 235/45R17 due to them being the most common and cheapest tyre in a 17" in Aus.

    I'm sure there must be a the same deal for 15s, does anyone know what they are?

    Cheers.

    I have 15" wheels on a car I bought yesterday 👍

    I'd rather spend $100 on a common size good brand tyre than $100 on a Chinese brand tyre because it's a uncommon size.

    Cheers, I'll try to convert the profile to mm and see how they compare with what I have now (195/55R15).

    I reckon the first digits (205 or 225) are already in mm and the profile is a percentage.

    many online tyre calculators can be found on google.

    Yep and the profile is the percent of the width.

    195/55x15 is itself a pretty common size these days with quite a wide selection of
    tyres. Known brand names spread from $80 odd to $170 ish. Best value for money
    seems to be in the $105-120 range though.

    Yeah cheers, I actually found a cheapish 195/55R15 with good reviews last night after posting this. I did look before but didn't find anything cheap, but I guess it's not as uncommon as I thought.

    $68 (not fitted) for Achilles ATR Sport 2, they have a nice looking tread too. They should be plenty good enough for a SSS SR20DE Pulsar.

    Literally 'killer' in the wet. Should be ok for the pulsar as long as your not trying to be Michael Schumacher when it's raining.

    Suorisingly most cheap tyres are decent in the dry, hell even jinyu/antyre/linglongs have been decent. Wet weather is when it turns I shit. Unless for skids get something a bit nicer.....

    Not flashy hehtik sports grip tyres but spending an extra $15-20 a tyre the reviews seem better and wet weather driving reviews are a lot more positive than guaranteed death,

    We had plenty of customers that were very happy with the achilles.

    'had' implies past tense, lol. I take it they are no longer with us. Deadlier than I thought.

    I has ATR's on a 300+ rwkw turbo coon

    They were as good as any other tyre it had such as the factory dunlops nitto nt05 re002's some maxxis things and pzero nero's

    By as good I mean dry traction, in fact they were probably the best of the lot


    But I've seen a few of them fail and it's not worth the risk now in my opinion

    Worst tyres by a mile were the re002's LOL
