    Icon10 These Michelin Tyres?

    Does anyone know if these Michelin tyres with the white writing are available here in Australia?
    Does anyone know if those wheels on that Saxo are 15 inch also?

    The tires look like Pilot SX-GT's, which don't normally have painted writing. The owner must have done it. Those tires are no longer available either.

    The Saxo rims I think look ok, but I have never been fond of the painted lettering on tires.

    I think the writing on the tyres is quite rallyesque......

    People who drive UAVs seem to like them as well.

    that pic was taken back in about 88/89 when the 604 was only 10 year old

    it was my first 604

    the 404 wagon was owned by a good friend of mine who still has a 404 UTE

    the wagon was sold on at a later date

    it also sported a twin exhaust

    we were younger and more foolish back then

    No apol necessary, I intended to fit twin aerials to my 403 and fit those ?safari mags painted forest green to go with the colour scheme. Was talked out of the safaris, plenty break I was told, had to fit 504 centres into 6x15 rims expensive and heavy. Forgot about the twin aerials, have one Mazda 323 fitted top of A pillar rhs, think another fitted lhs would have looked snazzy and linked up, improved radio reception 'outback'.

    no twin exhaust though

    White lettering on tyres is very late '80's.

    Remember BF Goodrich Eagers that the street machiners liked to bag up and I think some Yoko's had the writing on them as well.

    Daniel buy yourself a tyre letter pen from your friendly auto accesories shop and do your own lettering. If you are going to whiten the lettering you better grow a an '80's mullet to look the part.

    unless pilot sx gt's have different treads i don't think this is a sx gt.
    I've got the pilot sx gt's on my xsara and the tread looks different.

    haven't quite figured out how to add an image.. hope the below works

    Sorry i can't help tell you what it is.

    I was actually referring to the Blue Saxo with the white lettering on the tires. The lettering matches the SX-GT's. The other pics I don't know what tires they have.

    Bridgestone had the EAGERS, BF Goodrich had the Radial T/A..the T/A stood for traction absent. (they were worse than Fuego michilens in the wet.)
    The 80's mullet was extra

    And I thought that wearing flannies and listening to Guns & Roses would have no effect on my memory, at least I got the B part right.

    Writing on your tyres gave you about 5HP and increased handling by about 10% if my memory isnt that faded.
