    How did you go mate ?

    Wife's nugget goes in for service on Monday and i'll throw some tyres at it as well. Think it was $350 odd for the factory spec Toyos ? And BYO lube apparently....

    Paj had them as oem equipment.

    Good for better economy not so great on dirt
    Work quite well in the sand at around12-14psi.

    I picked Nitto NT830s for the Tiguan purely based on the tread pattern and I'm very happy with them.

    They look like they'd be horrifying in the wet. Quiet though.

    No movement yet Fatty, not had time to do anything about it yet! The ones I mentioned above are probably what I will get, I want her to have good tyres, but I'm not paying $300+ a wheel! Fuck I didn't spend that on sticky tyres back when I had a fast car!

    I have Pirelli Scorpion Zeros on my CX-7. Not as quiet as I expected, but happy enough with all other aspects.

    If just street driven, Michelin Primacy 3ST is well worth a look at below $300. Quiet and good wet/dry grip.

    It's AWD and I'm in Perth so not a massive concern but they seemed better than the stock continental tyres when I put them on.

    There is a bit of a wobble above 150km/h but that might be the tyre shop being lazy because I bought them online through tyresales.

    I just put these on the X5 and they seem pretty solid, although I haven't tried them in the dry yet. They don't have a 225/55 but the 235/60 wouldn't be far off. https://www.kumho.com.au/tyres/passenger/crugen-hp91/

    Ah, 5% taller is probably abit further off than ideal. It's over 30mm taller for starters, which would knock your speedo out of whack. Going to a 235/55 or even a 235/50 would be a better idea.

    The BMW speedos GPS adjust from what i can gather.

    GPS or vehicle calibration settings? I know with Mercs you had to change the vehicles settings if you changed tyre size, now you mention it I'd assume BMW would be the same.

    Un-Boothy like resolution post.

    Just booked in to get a set of 4 Kumho Crugen KL33's "Premium" SUV tyres. Bought them online from tyresales.com as the flogged the local Kumho dealer for price (and they are a newish model of tyre so won't be 10yr old stock).

    Rang the local Kumho place and felt I was being fed a line as the bloke said "$199 each for those" and when I asked for a price on the lower spec option too "ahh yeh they are $199 too". So I quizzed him about why the shit ones are the same price as the primo ones "ahh yeh, umm the better ones are on special". So I asked how long for *pause* "uummmm, yeh end of Feb". Something didn't sound right and looking online it's not that hard to find them anywhere from $10-$40 a tyre cheaper.

    Getting them delivered to the local Mini/BMW centre as they are near me, a "Premium" fitting centre so the Mrs gets the car cleaned inside and out at the same time, plus a wheel alignment.

    Going to keep the 2 Cooper CS5's that still have plenty of tread on them and flog them off on Gumtree for $50 each making it $644 for a set of 4 decent new tyres, plus a wheel alignment and a car clean.

    Tyres delivered and fitted no issue, recommend Tyresales online as they were easily cheapest, fast shipping and plenty of choices for fitting.

    While not performance tyres, they shit on the Coopers we had. They feel a little softer in the sidewall when cornering but grip and feel a lot better and quiet. Will see how well they last!
