Personally I steer clear of used tyres. You dunno what accident they've been in, curbed, etc. Both should be of equal quality though.

I have potenza Re010 on the front of mine, and they seem good. Lots of good turn in and grip. I had the Dunlop's on my Audi. Good tread pattern and I believe they were better than the potenza in the wet. Dunlops are softer tyres IMHO and wear quickly!

I have the Bridgestones on the front of my IS200 the tread is still perfect but the gaps in between the tread depths has all started to crack!!!! for this reason only I would probably not by bridgestones again.

Maybe its just unfortunate to happen to me but doesn't really inspire me to go and buy another set :huh:

RE 010 all the way. The RE 01x series are way better than the Dunlop SP line, especially if you drive hard in corners. When hot, the RE 01 will handle and stick much more than the dunlops! but if u r considering tire wear, then the dunlops will wear slower.

If you want to save money on one of the most important parts of your car (and like to live dangerously) buy used tyres (seen some very bad examples....).

Bridgestones are good tyres but have a serious aging problem (some series more than others) and tend to crack after a short time....

Dunlop Sp 2000 is a good option (think the tyres is no longer produced) and can be bought for a good price.
