Looking for Cheap Tyres? Everyone is talking about the great tyre prices at "7 Day Tyres". The article below from Choice Magazine will help you decide on price and performance

Tyres and tyre prices were recently tested by Choice Magazine http://www.choice.com.au. Test results for 15 car tyres priced from $72 to $207. Tyre prices are recommended retail May/June 2007. Tyre prices can vary widely, so shop around for the models you're interested in — you may be able to find them well below the RRP. See our New Car Tyre Reviews.

Most of them are V-rated for speed but included were some H-rated ones as well. This size is currently used on a number of popular small cars such as the Ford Focus, Holden Astra, Honda Civic, Mazda3 (their test car) and VW Golf. Tyres were checked for:

1. Braking performance in dry and wet conditions.
2. Cornering performance in dry and wet conditions.
3. Noise.

Tyre braking test

Main findings:
Only one model performed just as well in the wet as it did in the dry, The Continental, Priced at $175. Just 5 km/h can make a difference between holding a corner and going out of control.
