    Two of my Euros use 225/45R17, I just fit 235/45R17 and save about $30 a tyre or
    more depending on brand.

    225/45 Euro and a few others, 235/45 Holdens, guess which is cheaper and why.

    Same, 225/40R18 on mine, 235/40R18 which matches Commodore/Falcons was a solid 30-80$ tyre cheaper depending on brand/model

    yes, but you can't compare them in price though. Of course there is going to be a difference when you aren't comparing tyres in the same target range.

    Is the extra 200 itís or so worth it for the PS4?

    Currently has Sport Maxx RT on it which are noisy, seem ok performance wise other than shitty tread wear (although an alignment is overdue).
    Not worth the money I reckon. I don't find the bridgestones noisy, the tread blocks are pretty closed, and performance wise, the RE003 will be more than enough tyre for the nopics car. Id probably save the money, you aren't going to get an extra 25% life out of the PS4's compared to the RE003's.

    Just had the same choice for my GTI, went the RE003 on the 4 for 3 deal and I'm very happy. They work well on the GTI. Replaced a set of Conti Sport Contact 3's.

    Redux ... 2 of the 4 15yo tyres shredded on the tyre-removal machine while they were fitting my set for $685. So I think I was pretty lucky!

    That seems like good value to me, the nowhere-near-as-good Falkens were more than that 15 years ago.
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    Anyone used Bridgestone RE71R yet?

    I'm wondering if they're as good as Advan AD08R

    Yup, only through Motorsport dealers, so will be rather pricey at a guess.
