My current set of Bridgestone RE001 (205/50/R17) has been used for 3 years and it's high time for me to replace them soonest possible. I have checked with 2 tire shops and below are what they have quoted:

Shop A - CSC 5 (215/45/R17) - $230 per pc nett. (Inclusive of GST, installation, balancing, FOC tyre repairs & unlimited rotations every 10,000k with purchase of 4 tyres).

Shop B - Bridgestone RE001 (205/50/R17) $220 per pc nett (Inclusive of GST, installation, balancing). This shop does not have CSC 5 but quoted me CSC 3 (215/45/R17) @ $265 per pc (High price as this model is NOT ON OFFER).

The price of CSC 5 and RE001 quoted by these two tire shops are quite competitive. Which one is the better deal? Your feedback is much appreciated.

When I shut my mouth and turn and walk away, it doesn’t mean you’ve won. It simply means that you are not worth any more of my time.

Go for shop A,CSC5 is the latest,if for Bridgestone go for S001,or at least RE002.,but take note the diameter of 215/45 is a tad smaller than 205/50,for the same diameter,you need 225/45.

My Fd2 runs on United Arrow Rim. It has a width of 7 inch, offset 42 and PCD of 100/114.3. The tire size of 225/45 cannot fit my rim. In fact the CSC 3 of 225/45/R17 is selling at the offer price of $205 per piece.

My first set of tires was Goodyear F1 (215/45/R17), and 3 years ago, I changed to the current set of Bridgestone RE001, the reason I opted for 205/50 is because this higher profile tire offers better ride comfort than the 215/45 tire.

These CSC tires are from Europe. I will check the date of manufacture.

Btw, thanks all bro here for the feedbacks.

Continental's sidewall is soft and geared towards better comfort. Also, the tyre is very light.

Bridgestone's sidewall is hard and is geared towards better handling and thus the tyre is heavier.

So, it depends on what are your needs.

I changed my current set of tire in Nov 2008 together with my Battery. And my 3 years old maintenance free battery is still in very good condition. Although my current set of tires have been in use for almost 3 years, but the mileage covered is only around 40K km. My FD2 will be 6 years old by this coming Feb 2012, but my mileage is very low @ 75K km plus. Apparently, It takes you one year to cover 35K km, but it take me almost 3 years to cover around 40K km.

Funny, how did you guys get so low mileage from tires???
All my tires last me 60,000km and expect for F1 & Dunlop SP Racer (40,000km).....

Because you didn't always check tire pressure.

unless they only mark-up S$5 profit per tyre (very likely).

this tyre shop can give it a miss.....dont know how to do business even offer them 2-3 cars at a time.
they should be able to make smelly smelly S$50 to S$100 per car.
