Bridgestone 4 for 3 sale - Does anyone care?

I unlike many people on here like the oem run flats - even thought they are an old model tyre (REO50A). I like the idea of not having to worry about a flat and the fact that I can get a set of tyres for $1,100.

Anyone care to talk me out of fit? Can you get a better set for the cash?

You'll be better off grabbing a set of Conti's for that price, at least you won't be slipping around in the wet..

Try S001 RFT's if they're part of the promotion. I found them better than RE050A's.

That sounds like a cheap price. Is that sourced locally?

They are but they don't come in a RFT in the 215's.

Go to 225 in lower profile on the front instead of 215 then.

What? 1100 for a set of RE050A ??? Like... FOUR tyres?

The cheapest I have found them is just shy of 2k. Luckily have not needed to replace yet.

And how does it work with the 4 for 3 if you are getting two different tyres?

I just grabbed a set of four Goodyear tyres in their 4 for 3 promo. The price was pretty much on par with Tirerack ($1300) so it was worth buying locally. Great service from Goodyear Woolloongabba also.

Not going to work as I'm running 10mm spacers all round, I love the stock wheels but they sit to far in for my liking.

Yes 215's on the front and 245's on the back. You get the cheapest one free which was one of the fronts at $335 off the total price. So 2 x $345(rear) +2 x $335(fronts) = $1,360 - one front @ $335 = $1,025 + old tyre disposal $12 + wheel alignment $70 = $1,107.

I was quoted like $2300 from Tyrepower MOORABBIN!

I've run goodyear asymmetrics and p-zeros on other cars before and I really don't like them. The bridgies feel and look better imo.
