I have never had good experience with Michelins but good to hear they suit Classic Martini and he is happy. The price of $700 per tyre is absurd I wouldn't pay that, quote I got was more like $320-350. Bob Janes are known for overpricing Pirelli. Go to JAX or better still go to Carbonblack web site and you will save 100s.
Thanks for the info. BYW, tried Jax (just down road from me in Coogee) for tyre rotation and they got the geometry wrong, are severely under staffed (lotsa waiting - at both ends) so back to BJ's it was for me. Course, Jax nice bunch of blokes 'n all.
3pm day before Easter and BJ attended to me immediately, and had all 4 tyres fitted, balanced etc for me by next morning, and also explained the in's and out's of choices being made.
Nice if I could get both quick, knowledgeable servce and a decent price on the Pirelli's, which are a bit more 'sticky', that would be grand.
FYI - Carbonblack Top #1 tyre... Micheleins!
I'm not trying to be contrarian smarty-pants, I really appreciate your input.
