Hi Guys,

Looking at buying some new / slightly used tyres as wondering where others shop in canberra?

I've decided on 235/40/18 but didnt want to go overboard with price...

Any recommendations appreciated

cheers

Talk to Bullet 22 about Federal Tyres - my Federal 595rs's were so sticky at Wakefield that we had the little GTS-T up on two wheels on the last corner, and they're street legal. They might have something a bit harder that will last longer than the 595rs's and may be a bit cheaper too.

My lap times have improved significantly since getting the Federals, so I only have good things to say about them.

there is a place in fyshwick that does second hand tyres for ok prices i forget what they are called though... in saying that if bullet32 can help you out with some federals you should be happy. If you want a tyre other then federals give Marc out at Discount Tyre Service Belco a call he has hooked me up with to many tyres to list at great prices. Also a top bloke and always up for a chat.

You're thinking of Northwest Tyres. They're ok, but I bought a set of tyres there and scrubbed them out in 10,000km. You get what you pay for though.

Secondly, Marc left Canberra 2 weeks ago for sunny Hervey Bay in Qld, and no longer works at Goodyear Autocare (Previously Discount Tyre Service) in Belconnen. I would still recommend them for a good set of tyres as the guys that work there really know their stuff about tyres.

My understanding is that he still has an interest in the the two (Gungahlin and Belconnen) but has started another one down at Jervis Bay.

Yep thats the message I received as well. Marc will be back and forth a bit but spending most of his time down the Bay (the other bay).

Hi Guys - yes you are right and yes you are wrong. I have sold the Gungahlin store but still own the Belconnen store. All Discount Tyre Service stores have been re-badged Goodyear Autocare stores.

Also, I have moved to Hervey Bay and purchased another business - brake, clutch and steering.

If you are looking for tyres in Canberra pm me as I can still organise the right price for you at Belconnen.

In my absence - enjoy the cold 'cause I can guarrantee you that I am enjoying the warmer weather.

So like if you went and did the SK thing, you'd shit your pants right?

All skylines have the basis of good handling, all it needs to be done is maintained and not put logs on for tyres

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
    • So, whilst the Bogan Cruise Ship is GTG, and I had organised some time today to go on the SAU NSW cruise, my best laid plans where kicked in the balls, well, kicked in my right knee to be exact Now, after a bit of arthroscopic "honing" and tibial band lengthening "modifications" , I'm sitting on a couch in a prescription induced drug haze, watching 5hit on the Youtubes and falling in and out of consciousness......good times
