    Re: car tyre recommendations ?

    That is a good article you have quoted, and has the answer to all your concerns. Believe me, the better tyres should be on the rear wheels, for all the reasons outlined by that article. In saying...

    Re: car tyre recommendations ?

    No. All production of tyres in NZ has now ceased, due mainly to economies of scale and the cost of replacement machinery. I recommend though that you visit your local Bridgestone (who now own...
