GT Radial tyres 205/55/16R How much can i get them for and where?
also how do the one's made in Indonesia and China Differ?


I know a guy. KES 7500. 0723018351.
I'm sorry I don't know the difference, but I hear Indonesia is better

Indonesia much better than China. I think 7500/= is too high. If you are still interested I can get you the name of a shop in Kirinyaga road where a friend bought recently and the price - though I am sure he mentioned a figure less than 7,500/=. But then again, his tyres might have been smaller though he bought two different cars. One might be using 16R.
Never count on making a good sale. Have the purchase price be so attractive that even a mediocre sale gives good returns.

Have been having Linglong for about a year and a half.
Moved from GTR. First ones were good but things appeared to have changed, dissapointed after the second purchase(be it Indonesia or china).

Linglong appear to come in different classes. I suppose the most superior is the "Green Max eco..."....but even the "normal class" seems to be fine.

Where to buy: Approach Eastleigh from pumwani maternity hos, spot any Somali tyre shops.
Cost (Then): About 4 - 6K

Hankook tyres are good too. I have had them for approx 20,000kms and they still look "new", one puncture down. Bought mine at 7k for 14" from Amazon service centre in Westlands.

I got new tyres for my car and above the section where the pressure and max load are indicated it reads "USA and Canada Codes Only". The load is in kgs which is most definitely standard and the pressure is in both KPA and PSI.

As far as I am concerned PSI ( Pounds per square inch) is a standard measure. Or is it not? Why specify "USA and Canada Codes Only". The PSI is also much higher than what I am normally used to for the same category of tyres. The guy changing the tyres is also insisting on using "the normal" PSI instead of what is indicated.

Some one advice.

Which is better between Dunlop and Pirelli for size 265 /65 R17? Would have preferred Bridgestone but can’t get locally.

Dunlop is a beautiful tyre but that is just about it. when it comes to life, it's absolute rubbish!!. Pirelli 4 Seasons is as good or perhaps even better than Bridgestone.

4 seasons for wet/dry roads but the ATR goes one better.It's an all terrain tyre suitable for on-off road cars. Is the offer on all sizes?

That's a good deal if it's inclusive of VAT coz i remember buying a set late last year at close to 100K yet they were smaller (225/55R16)

From the above I'm glad I did not pick the Dunlops which were a bit cheaper at Auto-Express

You'll get Pirelli Cinturato (made in Turkey) for about 30K for a set of 4. Have had a pair of 185/65 R14s for about 8,000 km and have no complaints whatsoever.

I had made a resolution to look for Yokohamas to match the less worn pair (add your own joke about the Chelsea FC bus coming unstuck if you are into football).
However, I shelved the idea when Auto-Express offered the 2 Pirellis at 15.5k minus 1K voucher.
