which choice? (about tyres)
Posted 18 June 2005 - 11:48 PM
But this is about something slightly different.
I have a choice, new 14" tyres or second hand 15" drilled 6lug wheels and tyres.
There is a "u-pull it" wreckers near me, it would cost about $170aud to get the second hand wheels and tyres that are less then half warn. And what I know of new tyre prices it would turn out to be $400aud or more.
So, should I get new wheels and drill them? Or just get new tyres. Obviously new tyres are going too be better offroad performance, but how bad would older ones be?

that is always a problem isn't it...
I'd tell you all about how much I like my inexpensive 14" Liberators, but I don't think there are any WalMarts in Australia!
what outside diameter are they? I'm looking for 27"-28"... I don't mind trimming a bit so bigger the better I guess.

It ddn't say what sizes they come in.. do they come in 14"? I couldn't find any 14" AT tyres on the Aus websites of Dunlop, Bridgestone, Yokahama, BFgoodrich, GoodYear, and some others.. I spent 3 hours searching yesterday :-( So are there 14" tyres? It would save me a lot of work, doing fender widening and cutting, and hub drilling.
here's a better link.only size in 14's are 27x8.5x14 for $89 bucks

im using kumho venture m/t's.... the measures are 27x 8.5/14... these are the best tires i have found for the price.... i got them on tirerack.com for i think it was less than $80/ tire brand new......
i just took a look at them,looks gnarly.must have great traction.
how's the road noise with them?
guess i'll be forgetting about those other tires

Also, hows the wear on some of those MT Kumho??? I would be very interested to know. I don't drive my subie a whole lot, and I plan on doing a lot more offroading.. Not just trying to get down our drive way (luckly our house is right at the road, but if you want something from one of our sheds, theres a fair bit of mud to get thru now, after all the rain)
Thanks guys.. Oh, and would any Ozzie here know if I can get a AT or MT 14" tyre here?

I'm going to call around to get a price. I'm thinking they will be $100 to $120 each (OUCH) I base this on the $80USD price.
Time to go ask for some more money :-/
