    Current hotness in girl truck tyres?

    So, not terribly exciting but our X-Trail needs some new girl truck tyres as the nopics last awesome tyre selection of Cooper CS5's need replacement. She got these as her Dad, not a car guy, said they are awesome. In short, I disagree.

    The existing fronts have chewed the inside edge to the point of being bald which is alignment related but they've only done 20-25000km's and did get aligned when fitted and another alignment around 10000kms! They also suck fat cocks in the wet and slide around like a sweaty fat girl covered in jizz on a rubber sheet.

    So looking around there are plenty of Chang-ling and Wong-Dong brands from $120 and known brands up as high as $300+ a tyre. Sizes are 225/55/18 and not looking for something high performance or needing it to have offroad traction particularly. It's the wifes car and used for taking kids to school, family trips etc.

    So what has decent performance without being more than I would spend on sports car tyres and won't wear out in 5 mins?

    I'd call Rob at Tyre City and ask him what's best.

    His prices are pretty decent - the Toyo Proxes I'm sure would be overkill but excellent:

    I have continental’s on my Jeep cost $$$ but they are also 295’s

    But it hangs on in the corners and in the wet it’s excellent

    No more yum cha tyres anymore for me, they start out fine and then suck big time

    Yeh these Coopers were the same, good enough at first but fucking shite in the wet. I mean I drive the X-Trail faster than most people would but when it's wet I find myself slowing down as much as the most useless cunts on the road only because I know going my usual rain pace will just mean under steer, most likely in to a gutter with these tyres. Sure I could slow down (and I do) but I have a pretty good idea at what speed shit should start letting go and these go way too early...fine when I'm driving, not fine if happens to the nopics and she stacks it.

    Oh and all good on Rob, except he is 100kms away (although this time I will be sure to go see the right guy unlike last time when I thought it was Rob, and it was not Rob or his shop )

    Well technically it was Rob, but I call him Robbie, when I am there as that is what he calls himself and has it also on a fucking big sign out the front of his shop at Brendale.

    Helps if you get the suburb right to start with.....

    I might have to ask about the dodgy looking bloke who turned up a couple of years ago in a land barge when I get tyres for the euro wagon in July.

    I'd vote the Toyo HT, family run them on territories and seeing well over the 100k with no major issues. Solid tyre in the wet too.

    I got 75 000 ks out of a set of yoko geolanders on the Outback. They were a decent tyre.

    Or Hankook RA33s if available in your size. Assuming highway tyres not ATs.

    Maxxis Premitra HP5 225/55r18 outstanding tyre in the wet and braking is outstanding, very quiet too, Google tyre test to see how it beats a lot of the big names. I run a set on the front of my 300hp daily civic

    Had Geolander HT-S on the Voyager, and have run Yokos on the other cars except for the Rav. Will likely run the Geolander HT on the Challenger, and something more aggressive on some steelies.

    Michelin Primacy 3 ST?
    Have some Pilot Sport 3 on the nopics Mondeo and they are probably the best tyre we've had on it over the years. Which has included several upper range Kumho's and Mid spec Continentals.

    I put hankook HT's on instead of the Toyo's. Can vouch for the handchooks. Toyo's probably same same or better.

    Wife’s CX5 is up for tyres too. Fronts are getting pretty low, bit pissed that the car has only done 30k kms. 225/55/19’s - could they have found a more awkward size ?

    Toyo are the factory tyre, will probably just go them again if there’s nothing around that wears a bit better...

    Same with ours Fatty, 225/55/18 is not an entirely common size and searching by vehicle on the various tyre sites seems to only give a few choices. Came across Dunlop Grandrek PT3's which seem to have decent reviews and are on sale for $244 each. Looking at those as the option at the moment.

    Got Grandtrek AT22 on the Challenger, abit meh on them. They don't like fastish dirt roads, needed to lock the center diff to stop the thing from moving around so much even in AWD.
