Tire Dealers like to sell brands that pay the best and ones that arent moving as quickly as preferred.The local tire dealer was recommending a Nokian NRY. Anyone ever hear of these.
The BF Goodriches are terrific; I'm about to buy another set. They don't seem to get much respect, though. I have a QP; I've had Pirelli, Michelein and the two sets of the BFGs. The BFGs fronts have lasted about 16K miles and the rears about 10K. They are the stickiest tires I've had by far. Great tread look, terrific in dry, good in wet.Spyderman, have you checked this link yet?
I was seriously considering the BF Goodrich because it's supposed to be great on dry pavement, and we don't see a lot of rain here in California anyway. But the tread-wear grade is very low, even worse than the PZero.
So I think the best choice is the Goodyear Eagle, the grip is great and the tread-wear very high.
I know MaseratiBoy is a big fan of the PS1. Ali, do you have any idea of how long they last?
My 07 QP Sport currently runs with stock Pirelli tires. I am now at 16K and the rear tires need replacing. Questions:
1) Does that mileage sound about right?
2) There is plenty of tread on the front so I was wondering what are the issues re safety and performance were I to pick a cheaper replacement for the rear e.g. Michelin or Bridgestone until such time as I need to replace all four tires in which case I would then use one make.
3) If one can mix and match, does it matter what I use on the rear if I have Pirelli on front?
Very dangerous combination!---3) If one can mix and match, does it matter what I use on the rear if I have Pirelli on front?
AFAIK it's fine to use different brands\treads (within reason) on each axel, as long as you aren't mismatching tyres on the same axel.Very dangerous combination!
Should never mix tire makes. Too much difference which can cause disastrous results.
Go to wider rear tires so the load is more evenly spread over a greater surface and you'll cut down wear.
