I have bought tyres 265/70/17 MT 10 ply from Superstar group (an Indian wholesale tyre supplier etc) at 12-14 Fullarton Drive Epping. 03 9408 5770; www.superstargroup.com.au
. Mine cost me about $180 each fitted and balanced and the old tyres disposed of at no extra cost. I bought 6 of them.. I have had them over bitumen, deserts, stones, mud, sand etc and they have been faultless. They can supply any tyre you want for a better price than what u r putting forward. I have had expensive tyres prior and I would not pay such prices again.
The tyres I have on now handle as well as any of the expensive ones I have used.
I like the maxim of the tyre and garage guy in Boorooloola: when asked by a travelling punter in needs of new tyres "What is the best tyre to buy" The tyre guy answered.... "The cheapest"...
drive your own track...!
