    Works both ways though, I know of a few where the Mrs drove the $90k Prado 5kms each way to school, work and home. Then the hubby drives the Festiva 50km each way at dawn and dusk on kangaroo infested roads.

      Deadset, that does my head in. My wife has always had the newer/safer/best maintained car of the two of us with the best tyres and brakes etc for this exact reason.

            Same. Wife has the newer better spec car. Of course, it's filthy and full of food and crap, but whatever, at least they are safe.

                    Yup. Fitted with the cheapest tyres possible too.

                    I spent way too much of my working life trying to convince customers to upsell to the better tyre for the wife's car. 1600mm average yearly rainfall. Routinely experiences falls of over 200mm a day. Averages 100 days of rain a year. But it's ok to put the cheapest tyre on the car that carts the family around in.

                    I generally tell everyone to buy the best tyres you can afford anyway, but it goes double for the car that's carting your family around in. Until you start getting into the really premium brands or high performance tyre, the biggest difference to your extra $15-$20 a tyre spend is the wet weather performance. Some budget tyres are just flat out dangerous and I'm not sure how they are even legal to be sold.

                    I always liked those Goodyear commercials. If it only saves you once a year.... it's a good year.

                      The Goodyear ad is spot on though. My simple rule is whatever is between you and the ground (tyres, shoes and mattress) should never be skimped on.

                        The recent bridgestone campaign is good too. The one about there being only about a hand print of tread between you and the road.

                            Fat wife or skinny wife?

                            Someone mentioned on here that they sell tires and the condition of expensive soft-roader tires always shocks them when they look around at the lights sitting in traffic.

                            I've come to the point of cringing so much that I stopped looking. What scares me the most is the near new Euro SUV with a big engine is running two different Bok Choy Ditch Finders, that are down to the belts and it's just started raining, which in Perfs means the oil is coming out of the asphalt.

                            And they always have a baby on board sticker.

                            It's as bad as the south eastern suburbs drongo who gets busted doing 213km/h in a 70 zone with two kids in the back seat.

                              BMW x5/x3s seem to never have anything but crap tyres on them.

                                Because like the Porsche's, people buy the vehicle cheap and find the massive tyres they have on them are over $500 each when they've been used to buying $69 yum cha specials for their previous shit box. Usually what happens with vehicles like this is owners drive them until everything is about ready to fall out, then go on to sell them cheap, blaming them as a problem car. The multi link suspension that makes them so nice to drive has so many components they get quoted thousands of dollars to replace the worn arms, ball joints and bushes, ending their ownership of the vehicles. It's a real struggle to get people to understand the car they just purchased for under $20,000 had an original $130,000 price tag, it's not the same as buying a lancer/corolla/falcon/commodore. They are built differently and designed with a lot of components being a throw away service item. If you don't follow the service intervals and replace everything as listed/as it wears, you end up with multiple bills for thousands of dollars.
