RE003s

58 posts in this topic

I noticed that the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 (a re-badged RE003) has a much higher tread-wear rating than the RE003. I was on the understanding they are an identical tyre - maybe not?

At the time the dollar was a little higher. Worked out very similar to local prices to be honest. 

If you want to price check, Tire Rack charge about $300usd to ship 4 to NZ. You will get stung GST. But they arrive in ~5 days. 

(When the dollar was good, i got some 19" PSS for like $1700.)

why would you bother?  you're looking at around USD700 for four black circles and freight, add your GST and charges, and you're paying more than you'll pay on the street - GST included - In Niu ZIld.

Given you can get a square set of RE003's in 17" here for well under a grand... why would you?

Like I mentioned earlier, it was just under $1200 for a set of staggered 18's for the RE003 from Tony's Tyres.

I think that is very fair price wise.

I did the maths about a year ago and it was cheaper to buy in NZ
